Round Towers GAA to bring TV's The Chaser to Kildare town

TV's The Chaser

Round Towers GAA Club will launch the new nationwide showThe Chaser as their major fundraiser for this year in the Silken Thomas, Kildare Town on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

The show will be launched by Chairman Ken Morley. Those in attendance at the launch will also get a sneak preview of the show.

The Chaser is run on a nationwide scale by Pallas Marketing. Each of the 6 contestants selected can win €1500 at the show on Friday April 12, 2019.

Contestants are drawn from the audience and answer 7 questions with 4 possible answers valued at €100, €200, €300, €400, €600, €800, €1,000. The ones in red are milestones – contestant must choose after each question if they wish to bank the amount won or take another question. Contestants have two lifelines “Ask the audience” and “Take one” which will reduce the number of answers by one. Each lifeline can be used once.

Contestants then take the amount won to face The Chaser. They start on step 5 and Chaser starts on step 7. Chaser will offer 150% of amount won to take a step nearer or 30% of amount won to take a step nearer home.

Tickets for the show which will be held on April 12, 2019 at the Silken Thomas are priced at €20 each and can be purchased from any committee member. There will be a discount for groups with four tickets available for €50. Tickets will be available from the night of the launch on March 13. Tickets are expected to sell out in advance and will not be on sale at the door on the night so people are encouraged to purchase their tickets early.

The Chasers selected to save the funds for the local committee are to be announced soon Chairman Ken Morley said that the proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards development of sports infrastructure at the club which is currently experiencing major growth in members. He also extended an open welcome to all to attend the launch.

The chairperson paid special thanks to the hard-working committee for all their help and said if any company wished to support the event they should contact any committee member or email roundtowerskildaretown@gmail.
