“Sham Wedding” proves another terrific “Fun”draising success in Loughmacrory…
And so another major Fundraising Event has taken place in Loughmacrory. The latest endeavour, brought to the Community by the Parent Association as a St. Teresa’s PS fundraiser, highlights again not only the excellent organisation and fundraising element of the event itself but also in the overall immense social benefits which it provides for the entire community.
The 18+ Show may well have been just that but as locals and indeed many from the wider community packed into the St. Teresa’s GAC Clubrooms over two nights, it was unequivocally a night to remember and served up some ‘side-splittingly’ funny moments and exchanges.
A few which stand out include the brilliant banter between Mary and Bernie, Peter O’Donnell falling through the wedding cake, Jarlath Duff in a pink suit, Conal Curran doing a Rap Song, Sean Fox’s Basil Fawlty, the excellent Manuel impersonation by Kevin Fullen, the 3 bridesmaids Veronica, Orla and Tanya, Sean Curran getting to live his life-long ambition of doing the Sailor moment from ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’, Martin the ‘Singing Priest’, Paddy Hughes’ one-liners and the ‘Alfred Hitchcott’ moment 🙂 when it emerged that School Principal, Mairead Sweeney, had in fact locked Lucille in the cupboard and taken her place at the top table – and many more…
Keano and Lucille deserve ‘top marks’ for their entire contribution to the Show theme and the video plays during the course of the evening, particularly that crazy hen-party by the Lough and of course that Wedding First Dance 😀
To be fair, the entire cast and everyone involved were great sports and certainly deserved their standing ovation for taking to their parts with the sort of fun which encompassed the show’s overall theme. There were so many involved both on and off the stage that it really is “Hats Off” to all.
Ultimately the success of the event was enhanced by the fact that another £4,500 was raised for the much-needed School funds. The Primary School will now be in a position to secure vital digital resources for the children, including iPads and listening centres.
“The School as a whole are indebted to the Parents Association for their hard work and dedication to all the fundraising events which we have enjoyed over the past 15 months. St. Teresa’s also thank the superb cast and production team who delivered such a fantastic show and occasion for the entire community to savour”
Once again in Loughmacrory we are very fortunate to have so many people who put in such great time and effort in a voluntary capacity and of course we really do look forward again to the next exciting and entertaining event which will come down the line.
A huge well done to all involved…
