We held our second Pub Quiz fundraiser last Thursday 24th March in the Penny Hill Pub in total we raised €736 towards this year’s festival. There was a great turn out with 22 table’s committee member Shane Moynihan put the participants through their paces taking part as quiz master. In the end “the Graduates” emerged as overall winners, winning a hamper each courtesy of the Penny Hill.
They weren’t the only ones to walk away with a prize on the night however; the raffle was also a great success with participants giving generously. Prizes including a voucher for lunch in the Salamanca Tapas restaurant on Parliament Street in the City Centre, a bottle of Jameson donated by Cllr William Lavelle, cosmetics and bottles of wine donated by members of the Festival Committee were all warmly received.
Next up will be a bucket collection taking place between the 14th to the 17th of April 2011 and the Lucan Festival are looking for volunteers to help out over the weekend so please get in contact if you have a few hours to spare.
