Please see letter below from Johnty Motherway our club president and our Cork GAA Clubs draw co-ordinator about the launch of Rebel Bounty. While we are all so focused (rightly focused) on our own club, we can’t forget that Cork GAA is ours too and its needs the help and support of all Cork fans to compete on the All-Ireland stage. So apart from shouting from the stands and roaring on the rebels, this Rebel Bounty draw is another great way to support our county and in doing so, we will also be supporting our beloved Aghada. And the next time we are watching the Rebels take to the pitch in Pairc Ui Chaoimh, maybe with Rasper or Diarmuid Byrne or Diarmuid Phelan or the next upcoming Kieran or Pearse running out with them, we can say we helped them get there!
For many years now, the Cork GAA Clubs draw has been an important source of financing for our club in Aghada aswell as being a great way to support all of our Cork teams and Cork GAA in general. This year the draw has been revamped, re-energised and re named! It is now called Rebel Bounty. The draw runs monthly for 12 months. 1st prize for the lucky ticket drawn out each month is a minimum of €20,000. In April and August this 1st prize rises to €25k and for the month of December there is a whopping €100,000 for the 1st ticket drawn out that month.
Each month apart from the huge 1st prize there will also be 29 other prizes ranging from €3,000 for 2nd, down to €150 for the 30th prize. So each month your ticket will have 30 chances to win a prize or 360 chances of winning a prize in total for the year. Great odds and value for just over an €8 entry per draw.
Tickets can be bought in two ways which will give you entry to the 12 draws –
Upfront payment of €100 or
You can sign up to pay €10 a month for 10 months.
Luckily in Aghada we have had great numbers support Cork and Aghada by loyally contributing to this draw year on year. I would like to give special thanks to these supporters on behalf of the club for their continued commitment to Cork and Aghada. This year we are hoping to get more people into the draw. The way the new draw is structured and thanks to the support people have given down through the years, every new sign up we get will result in a significantly higher portion of every entry fee going straight to Aghada GAA, and also in effect allow every cent of new sign ups to come directly to Aghada. As there is no outlay from the club (we don’t contribute anything to cost of prizes) you can see that this draw presents a real opportunity to raise some badly needed funds for the club. While supporting the Rebels along the way!!
