Raising Cork

I got this via email. Check it out and its for a good cause.

We were all completely shocked at the devastation so many people in Cork suffered during the recent floods. We couldn’t just stand around doing nothing, so colleagues at H+A Marketing+PR decided to organise a fundraiser to help those whose homes and lives have been devastated.

We’re holding the Raising Cork Quiz in Silver Spring Moran Hotel on Monday December 7th in aid of the Cork Flood Victims – with all proceeds going to the SVP Cork Flood Victims Fund. We are aiming to have 200 teams of 4, and raise in excess of €30,000 for this worthy cause.

George Hook has kindly offered to be the Quizmaster, and Silver Springs Moran Hotel have generously offered their Conference Centre as a venue. So far businesses in Cork have been very generous in their sponsorship, and we have secured some amazing prizes; this includes 2 footballs and a Cork jersey signed by the legendary footballer Pelé. (If you can arrange or provide more please let me know)

We’ve set up a website where you can register your team. Go to www.raisingcork.com – all the information you need can be found there, and it will be updated regularly over the next week.

We have set up a twitter account so if you tweet, you can follow us on twitter.com/raisingcork.

We all really hope you can arrange to get a team together and get involved in this initiative. Please print out this poster or circulate it amongst your family, friends and colleagues. If you can’t attend, you can always make donations directly to the SVP Cork Flood Victims Fund, all the details are on the site.

I promise you, H+A’s Raising Cork Quiz will be great fun, and a lovely way to start the Season of Giving.

Look forward to seeing you on the 7th


Well Done to H+A for organising this.
