Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni and soccer legend Paul McGrath were on hand to launch the 2013 Monster Car Draw in support of the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre in Drogheda.
Main Ford Dealer, Smiths of Drogheda, is to provide the top prizes of two new Fiestas for the 2013 Monster Car Draw. Participants in the draw will also have the opportunity of winning one of three generous cash prizes.
Nicky Smith of Smiths of Drogheda said: “We are delighted to be supporting the excellent work of the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre which provides such great support to people living with cancer, their family and friends.”

Speaking about the draw, Gary Kelly said: “We are very grateful to Ford and Smith’s of Drogheda for their support of the Monster Car Draw this year. Thanks to their support and indeed, the support of the people who buy tickets for the draw, our centre can continue to provide the invaluable support to local families touched by cancer, with all services provided free of charge.”
Tickets for the draw cost €5 each and can be purchased from either the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre on George’s Street (and online: www.gkcancersupport.com) or Smiths of Drogheda on the North Road. Ticket sellers will also be out and about around the North East and at shopping centres over the coming months. In addition, An Post will be delivering pre-paid return envelopes to some 205,000 households in Louth, Meath, Cavan, Monaghan and North County Dublin, making it simple for householders to participate in the fundraising draw.
Nicky Smith continued: “Ourselves and our staff are getting right behind the Monster Car Draw and we will offer a free ticket to anyone who takes a test drive in one of our cars ahead of the draw.”
The Monster Car Draw will take place on Friday, 28 June 2013, with updates in the local press and on the Cancer Support Centre website: www.gkcancersupport.com.
