Mount Sion GAA Club brings the hugely popular “?20,000 Drop” to The Tower Hotel

On February 24th, Mount Sion GAA Club brings the hugely popular “?20,000 Drop” to The Tower Hotel in Waterford. This show has attracted large audiences all over Ireland over the past seven years and is fast becoming the most popular source of fund-raising for schools and clubs.

Contestants are drawn from ticket sales and each contestant will play for €2500. Contestants will be asked eight questions and must place their cash on the correct answers. If some cash is placed on an incorrect answer, it is lost and contestants go on to the next questions with the remaining money. The aim is to reach question eight and have some cash left. The show is fully computerised with lifelines to help contestants along the way. The questions and possible answers and displayed on two 8ft x 6ft screens, one at each side of the stage.

This incredibly successful show, which is provided by Pallas Marketing Ltd., is being run by Mount Sion to assist in fundraising for future development. The launch night for the show was held in their club house on Wednesday January 24th and a large attendance included main sponsors and advertisers. Also present was Tom Shanahan from Pallas Marketing (show providers).

The first ticket for the event was purchased by Waterford County star Austin Gleeson. We spoke to Kenny Stafford about the show at the launch night who advised as follows:

“We have been in contact with several others groups who ran, “?20,000 Drop” around the country with great success. We are all looking forward to a great night on the 24th as the show is really hi-tech and offers a superb night’s entertainment. The show is timed to start at 8pm and we would encourage people to come early to ensure a seat” said Kenny.

“We would also like to say a particular word of thanks to our major sponsors, Stratus Online Healthcare, Mean Bean Coffee, Michael Grant Physio, McLearys Restaurant, Fairway Coaches, J P O’Donoghue Solicitors, Gerry Kennedy Crash Repairs and Actavo, and to all of those who have taken out advertising at the show”, he continued.
