St John’s SNS to launch Who Wants To Be A Thou­sandaire

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

ST JOHN’S SNS will launch Who Wants to be a Thou­sandaire tonight (Wed­nes­day) in Christy’s Pub at 8 p.m.

Run by Pal­las Mar­ket­ing, this is the school’s ma­jor fundraiser for the year.

The premise of the fundraiser is very sim­i­lar to the hit tele­vi­sion show ‘Who Wants to be a Mil­lion­aire’. Eight con­tes­tants will be ran­domly se­lected from the au­di­ence to be in with the chance to win €1,000, aided by their three life lines of 50/50, phone a friend and ask the au­di­ence.

‘The pro­ceeds from this fundraiser will go to­wards the build­ing of a new gen­eral pur­pose hall,’ said school prin­ci­pal Joy Lough­lin.

‘We are de­lighted with the re­sponse from the lo­cal com­pa­nies who have come on board as ma­jor ex­hibitors and ad­ver­tis­ers. All ex­hibitors and ad­ver­tis­ers will avail of on screen ad­ver­tis­ing at the show and will be pro­moted strongly by us on the night.

The show will be launched by lo­cal au­thor Adele O’Neill and those in at­ten­dance will get a sneak pre­view of the show.

The show will be held on Fri­day, April 20, in the Ark­low Bay Ho­tel and tick­ets, priced at €15, can be pur­chased from any com­mit­tee mem­ber. There will be a dis­count for fam­i­lies or groups, with four tick­ets avail­able for €50.

Tick­ets will be avail­able from the night of the launch and are ex­pected to sell out, so early pur­chase is ad­vised. Ms Lough­lin ex­tended spe­cial thanks to the hard-work­ing com­mit­tee for all their help. Any com­pany who wants to sup­port the event can con­tact any com­mit­tee mem­ber or email prin­ci­pal@stjohn­sark­
