Rince Nua dancers help to keep the Irish Fair of Minnesota free

Rince Nua dancers entertain local audiences and sell raffle tickets for the Irish Fair of Minnesota

The raffle tickets sales are set up to benefit both the fair and the dancers – with a portion of the proceeds that goes to keep the fair free and a portion that goes to the dancers

For five Rince Nua dancers who have Irish danced throughout their childhood, they decided to start selling tickets last May, and continued to sell them throughout the summer.  This was a great way for them to fundraise to help pay for their dancing dreams which included traveling to Ireland to compete as soloists at the CRN Irish Open and/or World Championships.

The dancers are hopeful that they may have potentially sold the winning Grand Prize ticket to someone in our local community who could win a trip to Ireland that includes airfare for two, 8 nights lodging, and a car rental compliments of Terry Flynn Tours and Anchor Full Service Travel.

The Irish Fair of Minnesota is a free event for all ages to experience and enjoy Irish music, dance and culture over a fun, three-day weekend (August 11th – 13th) on Harriet Island in Saint Paul.

You can see Rince Nua perform at the Irish Fair this coming Saturday, August 12th at 10:00am and 3:00pm in the Dance Tent.  Visit the Irish Fair website for the full entertainment schedule www.irishfair.com
