The Ardara Poor Farmers Association are holding their 9th Charity Auction in Teague’s Bar, Ardara, tonight, 29th December 2014 at 9pm.
To date the P.F.A has raised an astonishing €190,409.00 for the local Hospice homecare and Cancer Research. Don’t forget this year’s theme is Cowboys and Indians – Fancy Dress. Prize for Best Dressed.
This year we will split the proceeds between the
• Killybegs Hospice Suite,
• Alzheimer’s Donegal Branch and
• Cancer Care West.
The P.F.A. committee has purchased 2 Horned Blackfaced Ewe’s From Mark Smyth, Macosquin, Coleraine running with €1000 Doldy Ram, 2 Westie from Connie Toland and 2 CF52 straws.
The P.F.A. auction we will be as usual a great night’s crack. Furniture and fixtures are removed and replaced with bales of hay to sit on with saw-dust covering the floors. The stage is also transformed into a bidding table for the auctioneer taking charge of proceedings over the usual dance floor which also morphs, on the night, into ‘the mart ring’ but seeing is believing so be sure to make your way to Teague’s Bar on the 29th Dec. 2014.
In the past, lots have included sheep, heifers, bags of turf, chickens, gates, bags of nuts and bales of silage to name but a few.
“We’ve lots flying in as we speak. And we’re expecting a wide and varied range of items to be in place by the time the night comes around. If you’ve never been to the event, then you should make the effort this year as it’s truly a unique night that will live long in your memory – it’s crazy – but it’s all for such a great cause!”
