Also for sale at our “Gig for Gary” statue & memorial fundraising shows.
How Much Goes to the Statue?
Cost price for the shirts purchased from Streetshirts begins at £11.49 and reduces the more t-shirts are sold. Therefore profit to the statue fund from Streetshirts is at least £13.50 per t-shirt.
Cost price for t-shirts purchased to sell at the statue fundraising shows is €9 each. The Button Factory in Dublin have waived their 50% commission on merch sales as their generous contribution to the statue fund. This means the profit to the statue fund from t-shirts sold at the Gig for Gary concerts for €25 each is €16 per t-shirt.
Our goal is to approach Belfast City Council with a request for grant funding
while we commence public fundraising for construction stage 1
with a series of concerts and tee-shirt sales.
We have made contact with Belfast City Council
who have shown a very keen interest in a Gary Moore statute for Belfast.
We are now submitting a proposal
for the City Council to play a key role in the project.
Stay tuned for more news!
