Ticket only Event - The most popular choice!  

  • We print up to 1000 tickets which can use to generate up to €20,000 (depending how you price the ticket and how many you sell)
  • Each ticket is individually numbered so it can double up as an entry and prize draw ticket. 

Buster Race Tickets - A proven Club Favourite! 

  • 720 tickets to sell with a potential of raising up to €21,000!! (Depending how you price the   ticket) 
  • Each ticket has its own unique numbers combination which could also be the winning combination of your dedicated race.
  • Finish off the night in style and present the winning Trainer & Greyhound with a trophy and     jacket! 

Additional Revenue Generators -Simply add one of these to further boost your funds! 

  • Raffle Licence (for the night of your event)  
  • Greyhound Nominators (virtual greyhound ownership for one night only – you could be on   the winners’ podium!) 
  • Race Sponsorship (see your name in the race-card!)

Raising funds for your good cause & the IRGT

Did you know that 2% of ALL winning prizemoney is donated to the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust? And that the Irish Greyhound Board then match that amount in another donation?

So that means that not only is your cause raising funds from your fundraising event but so is the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT).

“Went to the "Dogs" as part of a Club Fundraiser and has the Meal in the Restaurant which was top class. I was a little apprehensive with such a big crowd but we were all delighted with the meal. Even though there were a lot of kids there, they were not pushing us out the door afterwards.”
