The Annual Armagh GAA Club/County draw for 2020 has been launched. The draw takes place over 4 months - March, April, May and June - with 16 prizes on offer each month. The first prize each month is £10k, right down to a 16th prize of £200. Tickets are priced at £100 each with £80 from every ticket going directly to the Club after we reach our minimum target of sales (the Club must buy/sell 25 tickets). A ticket can be bought by paying £100 up front or 4 monthly instalments of £25 per month. Tickets can be purchased from any of our Committee members and the more tickets we sell, the more money the Club raises. As such, we would encourage all our Club members, families and friends to purchase a ticket either individually or perhaps as a group of 4 at £25 each. It is a brilliant opportunity to raise much needed funds for the Club whilst also being in with a chance of winning/sharing some fantastic prizes. Ballymacnab members have been lucky in the previous years draws!!!
