"We have run a fundraising night at Shelbourne Park for a number of years and on each occasion have made a substantial profit for the Club. We have found the Management of Shelbourne to be of great help in the organising of the event and the Fundraising package they offer represents great value. All our supporters have also found the facilities and the food at the stadium to be of the highest standard and each year our members and supporters have requested a return to this great venue for another fundraising event"- Tony Donnelly
