The Dundalk Tourism Committee is hosting its inaugural fundraising effort with a ‘Night at the Races’ on Friday, 28 February 2014 to raise funds that will be reinvested into tourism initiatives in the North-East region.
The event, which will be held at Dundalk Stadium, is the first ever tourism gathering to celebrate all that Dundalk and its wider environs offers the discerning tourist and the creation of a tourism fundraising drive for the region.
The event is open to all tourism businesses and organisations and is an ideal social networking occasion.
The Dundalk Tourism Committee is entirely voluntary and as decided to become more active and generate funds to put back into the local tourism drive.
Sean Farrell, Chair of the local Tourism Committee said: “Attracting holiday-makers and short-stay visitors remains a significant challenge for tourism businesses in the area and the efforts of the local tourism committee need to progress to tangible events and marketing campaigns.
“In order to do this, we need to self-fund and the inaugural fundraising effort at Dundalk Stadium is a means of gathering the funds to translate into a tourism campaign.
“We ask all local businesses and tourism providers to support this fundraiser which will benefit the wider Dundalk region.”
