Balbriggan RFC Race Night takes place in the Bracken Court Hotel on Friday March 6th. We’re asking all our members and friends to get behind this club fundraiser. The funds raised from this Race Night will help with the kit-out of the clubhouse in terms of furniture and appliances etc.
In addition to selling horses, we’re also looking for race sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring a race, please email email@example.com. The cost of sponsoring a race is €100, and your name/business logo will appear in the race booklet and across club social media.
Thank you for your support.
We hope that everyone is enjoying the Christmas break and looking forward to a Happy and rugby-filled New Year. We have a lot to look forward to in 2020.
