Local darts fans are in for a treat next month following the announcement that two-time world champions and current world number two Gary Anderson is travelling to Dundalk for an exhibition match.
Scottish darts legend Anderson will play in the Crowne Plaza on Sunday June 25 with all proceeds from the evening going to Cara Cancer Care Centre. The event is being organised by Finbarr Kelly and Mary Justine Gray and follows hot on the heels of last month’s successful event which saw Phil Taylor play an exhibition match in the Ramada Hotel on the Armagh Road.
Mary Justine Gray is hopeful that this latest fundraiser will prove just as successful as the Phil Taylor exhibition last month.
“We managed to raise a nice bit of money for the North Louth Hospice and Cara Cancer Care Centre last month and we have decided to bring Gary Anderson over this time around and donate all profits made towards Cara Cancer Care Centre. Myself and Finbarr have both had family members who have passed away through cancer and we know that Cara are self-funded and do some amazing work.
“There are VIP meet and greet packages available for €35 which will give you a chance to meet Gary and will also include refreshments. There are also general admission tickets available for €15. The format on the night will see Gary play a leg of darts against 20 local darts players and we’re sure it will be a great night.
“There are only a limited amount of VIP tickets left so I would advise people to hurry up if they plan on getting one. We would like to thank the Crowne Plaza and our main sponsor Fives taxis for helping us put this event together,” stated Mary Justine.
Tickets for the evening can be purchased from www.ticketstop.ie or at the reception in the Crowne Plaza. For further information contact Finbarr at 0864412761.
