MUSICAL SOCIETY SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISER ¤600 is raised for group’s next show
BRAY MUSICAL SOCIETY was delighted with the success of its recent race night held in Holland’s pub.
Over a hundred people came ready to place a bet at the tote in the hope of winning a few euros.
Over ¤600 was raised for the Musical Society and the funds will go towards their next show.
Each race was sponsored by Holland’s pub and Bray Credit Union with the jockeys and horses been bought by the Musical Society members.
There was no time for play acting as the serious horse racing enthusiasts stepped up to the tote to place their all important bets.
In keeping with the musical society theme each of the horses in the last race were named after a musical.
The climatic final race saw My Fair Lady neck and neck with Argentina’s favourite lady Evita, but in the last hurdle coming up on the inside was Calamity Jane decked out in her checks followed closely by Annie.
This all female race had the crowd sitting at the edge of their seats.
And the red-headed Annie got some fire in her step passing all three ahead of her just in time to reach the finish line in first place.
A huge cheer filled the room and with all the nail biting excitement many of the gamblers stayed on after the last race to spend their winnings on a few drinks.
The members of the Musical Society were delighted with the support on the night and hope that this will be the first of many race nights to come.
The Musical Society are currently recruiting new budding performers to join the group. firstname.lastname@example.org
