Old Crescent RFC announced it will host the new nationwide show “The 20k Drop” as a major fundraising event in the South Court Hotel on Friday, 25th November, at a launch reception in the Hurlers Bar in Castletroy this evening.  The launch event was attended by the Mayor of Limerick City & County, Councillor Kieran O’Hanlon.
The 20k Drop is run nationwide by Pallas Marketing and is similar to the TV show ‘The Million Pound Drop’. Each of the 8 contestants selected will receive €2,500 and must place their money on each of 8 correct answers. Having answered the 8 questions, the contestants will keep the remaining amount.
Announcing the 20k Drop fundraising event, Pat Monaghan, President of Old Crescent RFC, said “Old Crescent has doubled the size of its grounds at Rosbrien in the last year and the proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the long term development of the sporting facilities at Rosbrien. He extended an open invitation to all members, supporters and friends, of Old Crescent to attend the 20k Drop event in the South Court Hotel on the 25th November”.
Mayor of Limerick City & County, Councillor Kieran O’Hanlon, congratulated Old Crescent on their achievements both on and off the field in recent years and he wished the Club every success with its fundraising efforts.
