The act which receives the most sponsorship will be awarded the ‘Revenue Award’ – the act which went above and beyond to raise money for our local GAA Club! Please get in touch with any of the participants if you would like to help them win this prize! Also, tickets are flying out the door, so get yours quick! for our upcoming Lip Sync Battle Fundraiser which will take places at the Devon Inn Hotel on February 4th. Following an appeal for main sponsors for this magnificent event, we are very lucky to have secured four main sponsors: Athea & District Credit Union, Brown Joes Bar, Allman Contracts Ltd and Mike Hayes Building Contractor. The committee would like to sincerely thank each sponsor for their generosity. We are currently selling full and half page adverts for a special Athea Lip Sync Booklet which will be available on the night.
