Tickets are now on sale for Rebels’ Bounty, a new fundraising initiative by Cork GAA designed to support Cork players, clubs and county. The initiative offers a spectacular total prize fund of €500,000, with one lucky club member set to win €100,000.
Rebels’ Bounty is an initiative of Cork GAA to give clubs a significant opportunity to raise funds at a time when traditionally fundraising has been impacted by restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Tickets for the draw cost €100 each, and tickets will be sold via our club draw coordinator Eileen O’Donovan, who can be contacted on 0868555252 or via the draw website https://gaacork.ie/rebelsbounty.
For each draw, there are 30 cash prizes, ranging from €100 to €20,000. In April and December, the top prize will increase to €25,000. In December, the bumper prize of €100,000 will be given away. All the funds raised by the Rebels’ Bounty will be directly and indirectly invested in Cork GAA clubs. The draw is designed to ensure that most of the funds are kept locally to help improve facilities and equipment, while the remainder will be used by Cork GAA to invest in programmes such as Rebel Óg and supports for inter-county players.
Speaking at the launch of Rebels’ Bounty Kevin O’Donovan, CEO/Secretary Cork GAA commented “Following from the launch of One Cork we are now delighted to official announce details of Rebels’ Bounty, marking the beginning of a new fundraising era for Cork Clubs. We have increased the prize fund to ensure maximum return for our members, with 30 prizes monthly. We listened to our members and all 30 prizes are now in cash. 2020 has been a unique and difficult year for our clubs and I’m delighted to launch this appeal allowing clubs to raise vital funds at a time when it is extremely hard to do so.”
The first draw due to take place in February has now been postponed until Thursday March 25th where prizes will be drawn for January, February & March. The maximum number of entries per person is 5, with a maximum of 2 names per ticket. Entries for the first three draws will close on March 23rd 2021.
