ON Thursday, June 13, the Copper Coast Scout group are bringing the hugely popular “Who wants to be a Thousandaire” to The Greenway Manor Hotel.
This show has attracted large audiences all over Ireland over the past seven years and is fast becoming the most popular source of fund-raising for schools and clubs.
Contestants are drawn from ticket sales and each contestant will play for €1,000. The show is fully computerised with 50/50, Ask the Audience and a brilliant video linked Phone a Friend. The questions and four possible answers are displayed on two 8ft x 6ft screens, one at each side of the stage.
The show, which is provided by Pallas Marketing Ltd, is being run by the Coppercoast Scout Group to assist in fundraising for the next phase of the Ballyscanlon Project. The launch night for the show was held in Harney’s Pub, Dunhill on Wednesday, May 15, had a large attendance, including Elaine Walsh from an Duine Beag, Brea Roche from Bonmahon Joinery (two of the eight main sponsors for the event) and Tom from Pallas Marketing (show providers). The first ticket for the event was purchased by Anita Power.
