THREE Cork sporting clubs have joined forces to offer someone a brand new home, with an estimated value of almost €300,000.
The #WinAGaff competition is part of a fundraising initiative on behalf of Cork City FC, Douglas GAA club and Kinsale AFC, with funds being distributed to develop facilities at each for all age levels.
The ‘Gaff’ in question is a new 75 sq m, two-bedroom apartment in the highly sought-after suburb of Ballintemple in Cork city.
A ticket for the draw costs €100, and a maximum of just 9,000 tickets are being put up for sale. The lucky winner of the apartment will be drawn in a grand prize raffle in October.
West Cork man Paul Wycherley, general manager, Cork City Football Club said: ‘Whoever wins this luxurious apartment will need luck on their side, but they will only have paid €100 to secure the keys. This is a great opportunity for someone to get onto the property ladder with minimal effort, while also helping the three clubs involved to raise much-needed funds.’
Kinsale AFC says the money raised will improve its ageing facilities, after the numbers involved in the club trebled in just five years.
While the home is the main prize on offer, the runner-up will be given a different set of keys.
The second prize on offer in the draw is a brand new five-door Toyota Yaris Terra, provided by Lehane Motors. Third prize is €1,000 in cash.
Paul added: ‘We have already seen people buy tickets from Kerry and Donegal, and from as far away as Australia and Canada. This is the first time a prize like this has ever been offered in Cork, and we expect the 9,000 tickets to sell fast.’
