Rose are red and violets are blue but €24,900 was sweet too……

On Friday 12th February love was in the air in St Jarlath’s Credit Union for the €24,900 prize fund which was up for grabs for the 18th Members Cash Draw. On Monday 8th February, ten lucky Members were electronically drawn and notified that they had been picked out to step up for the Valentines draw. The draw was broadcast live on Galway Bay FM with the added entertainment from presenter Ollie Turner who kept the large crowd entertained with exceptional comical sketches and all round entertainment along with the excitement of giving away a prize fund on the day of €24,900.  Earlier that day local celebrity Brendan Murray popped into St Jarlath’s Credit Union’s Tuam branch to launch the Valentines draw. Brendan who is part of the successful group Hometown, a six piece vocal group which was set up by Louis Walsh in 2014. The group made up of singers from the four corners of Ireland were selected from almost 2,000 young hopefuls and are now signed to the record label RCA Records, a division of the Sony Music Entertainment UK.

The ten members who took part in the draw were asked to pick a capsule each, in the same order as the computer originally generated their names.  Seven of those capsules contained an amount that the Member wins instantly & keeping the suspense going the remaining three capsules contained keys 1, 2 & 3 which open corresponding boxes for the top three prizes. Simone Walsh, Grace Ferrick & Barry McCabe had the lucky dip on the day and drew out the capsules containing keys.  All three boxes were opened simultaneously to reveal who had won the three top prizes of €7,500, €4,500 & €3,000. Well known footballer Barry McCabe from Caherlistrane walked away with the top prize of €7,500, Simone Walsh with a handsome €4,500 & Grace Ferrick with the 3rd prize of €3,000.

The Draw was first set up by an internal committee in March 2013 with a prize fund €9,100. The draw is not-for-profit whereby every euro that Members put towards the draw goes back into the prize pot.  Due to its continued success more and more members are signing up and the prize fund is continually on increase.  To date there has been over 180 winning members winning a share in a prize pot of a staggering €323,050.

The next Members Cash Draw takes place in April where it is expected that the prize fund will exceed €26,000.  Why not sign up today to be in with the chance of getting your hands on Aprils cash draw?  Register through our website www.sjcu.ie or call into any of our branches.
