While our restaurants and public admissions remain closed, racing continues “behind closed doors” and the action is still the same exciting greyhound racing that you have enjoyed for many years!
With this in mind, we have developed a pulsating fun-filled, simple and safe fundraising night suitable for your community!
We are bringing an entire nights live racing and entertainment directly to your home! Hosted from our event partners studio with a live presenter and DJ, the night is a mix of live racing action, interactive games, phone-ins and entertainment tailored specifically for you!
Every year millions of euro is raised for clubs, organisations, schools and charities at local Greyhound Stadia right across Ireland. Our newly developed Virtual Fundraising concept ensures that you and your club members or friends can enjoy a great, safe night out, building an even stronger club spirit!
The biggest draw of fundraising at any greyhound stadia nationwide has always been that it is suitable for all the family (no matter what age). Now with our Virtual Fundraising option you can relax, enjoy the banter, cheer home a winner (hopefully) and enjoy a virtual catch-up with friends and team-mates.
Fundraising takes time and effort. That’s why, at every turn, we want you to take advantage of our enormous experience in getting maximum results. We’ll help you develop a fundraising strategy that suits your needs!

Did you know that 2% of ALL winning prizemoney is donated to the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust? And that Greyhound Racing Ireland 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).
Don’t worry this money does not come from the funds you raised but direct from racing, but it’s nice to know that everyone is benefiting from a night at the dogs.
