Looking for ideas for a Gaa fundraiser. Specifically something that involves a match eg over 40s or fancy dress etc. any novel ideas that have worked?

Watchaed a game once between the fire brigade and the coast guards, what was mad was both were in full rig out. Firemen in full gear including wellies and helmets against men wearing wet gear and flippers. Ever see a man take a free kick wearing flippers or a man jumping for a ball in a pair of steel toe capped wellies. Madness but some Craic. Key is don't charge a set price at the gate. Just leave a bucket you'll colllect more that way

Is there reason why you have to involve a match? It limits what you can do as hard to be innovative with a game.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, truth is if the club is a functional well run club they can run anything and it will be a success, if you have the best fund raising idea in the world but your community/club aren't invested then your at a loss

I think you are 100% right and exactly the essence of what we are trying to achieve. Club is well run but too many standing on the sid elines, literally!

the #1 idea for me is anything which involves a night out for people.
i know there are clubs in wexford who do a biggest loser comp,i am not sure exactly what they do or how but they do something like break the club into 4 teams,teams can organise fundraisers (which are often things like table quizzes, etc) and ultimately the team who wins are the one who lose the most weight and raise the most money.i am not very sure of how they do it.
i know some clubs got their nearest rivals in wexford and organised a fight night against the nearest club and had a right night and raised a load of money.
once it involves a night out and is something different from going to the local for a few,people will more often than not join in.
