Is that your final answer, John?
A large crowd gathered in the Blackrock College RFC clubhouse on Friday evening for a special fundraising event.
The game show, 'Who Wants to be a Thousandaire?' was a wonderful night's success with lots of laughs throughout and even some big winners on the evening too.
The night began with a networking event, with the game show kicking off at 830pm. In keeping with the popular Millionare television program, the Thousandaire version had all the same excitement, including phone-a-friend, familiar sound effects, along with similar shouts of winning joy and even the unfortunate experience of crushing defeat that came with an incorrect answer! With nine rounds, each offering a chance to win €1000, there were several lucky winners, with no one leaving with less than €50. Not a bad nights work!
Our €1000 winner, happily receiving his cheque.
Pappy Burke, VP of fundraising and the Thousandaire event organizer, should be proud of his efforts and those of the committee. It was a brilliant night.
Thank you to Pallas Marketing for their guidance and professionalism throughout the entire planning stages of this event.
Special thanks to our 9 major sponsors, 90+ advertisers and to our Rugby community of members and friends who came out to support the event. We couldn't run a successful fundraiser without the tremendous support we received.
