Pulse brings comedy showcase to Ratoath
Some of Ireland's top comedians will descend on Ratoath next week to perform a fundraising comedy showcase in aid of the Ratoath Pulse project. As part of the projects final fundraising push, The Venue Theatre is hosting the event on Thursday, 26th January, at 8.00pm.
The show will feature Jason Byrne, Joe Rooney, Greg Marks, John Henderson, and other guests. Tickets for the event are selling fast and can be purchased in the community centre box office, or you can contact Gerry (087)2510998 or Fergus (087)6472747
The comedy night will also give local residents an opportunity to come together in support of a great community-based initiative.
The Pulse committee's efforts to raise funds to build a dedicated youth activity centre are well advance, having so far raised €30,000. Their objective is to raise another €25,000 in coming months so that the first building block can be put in place this spring.
Once the facility is built, the Pulse committee will be relying on the community's continued generosity in furnishing the place as well as sustaining its viability for the long term.
Organisers are asking Ratoath residents to sign up to a monthly standing order of €10 to Ratoath Youth Forum (Bank of Ireland Ratoath 90-36-48 2608 4644). And while not everybody is in a position to commit to such a fixed payment, people are asked to make a single donation to the above account number or leave a contribution into Ratoath Community Centre.
