Fundraising in 2011, by Niamh Gillooly.Mon Jan 2, 2012
This year my family and I wanted to raise money for The Arthrogryposis Association.
Throughout the year we had several fundraisers organised, starting with the Dip on St Stephens Day in the freezing cold water. Everyone came in fancy dress and there was a prize for best dressed male and female. We had a raffle on the day and it was very enjoyable and fun to do. There was about 25 taking part in the Dip and everyone was
given a sponsorship card to collect money. We raised a fantastic €3,332.
Next my Uncle-In-Law Mark organised a Texas Holdem Poker Night in aid of Arthrogryposis. There was two tables of players and another raffle took place on the night. We raised €600. Mark plans on doing another poker night by the end of the year.
