Re: WinTheHouse – Notice of Main Draw Date
The main draw for our house in Maynooth was scheduled to take place today. However, it has become necessary to reschedule the draw until the new date of Sunday 3rd May 2020. This will be streamed live on Facebook and Instagram, from a venue in Wexford Town, to be confirmed.
This is a decision that was not taken lightly and was taken at 08:00 this morning. As a fundraiser, unfortunately it has so far not met our objectives in terms of raising adequate funds to enable us complete development at our club. We left this decision to the latest possible time to give the draw the best chance of proceeding in line with our objectives.
While sales have been strong enough to cover our costs, sales have not been strong enough to enable us meet our objective as of yet. We believe that market congestion has been the main reason for this, as our draw turned out to be the last of five house draws nationally that were scheduled to take place this week.
We understand that this will inconvenience many of our entrants and we regret this. However we hope you will understand that our sole purpose in conducting this draw is to fundraise. The main focus of this is the completion of a clubhouse and community centre for the children and young adults in our club and for the general use of the public of Wexford Town.
We can confirm that we have taken possession of Nr 90 Carton Wood and we will shortly have a video tour of the actual house available to view on our website.
The revised draw date was selected to give certainty to everybody that the draw will, without doubt, be conducted on that date, and one lucky winner will walk away with Nr 90, Carton Wood on that date.
We apologise for the inconvenience and annoyance that this may cause you.
