GPA Charging Astronomical Amount For Top Sponsorship At Upcoming Boston Event

The GPA's Second Annual Boston Dinner is going ahead on April 6th this year, and guests will be charged between $500 and $50,000 to attend. A basic ticket is $500, with sponsorship of tables split into a number of packages, with prices ranging from $5,000 to $50,000.

The top sponsorship - Platinum - comes with a host of perks, the stand-out being a VIP package for two to both the All-Ireland senior hurling and football finals which includes a round of golf at a top Irish course,  a four-night stay in the Westbury Hotel, and a fancy meal. Those who pay top dollar are also given prime location in the ballroom, tickets to the All-Stars, a GAA legend at their table, prominent signage at the event and a signed jersey from the hurling and football champions.

The next most expensive package comes in at $25,000, and gives those who pay it a VIP package at either the All-Ireland hurling or football finals.

Those who pay $15,000 earn themselves a VIP trip to either the All-Ireland senior hurling final, the Leinster senior football final, or an All-Ireland senior football semi-final.

There are options, too, to pay either $10,000 or $5,000 for a table of ten.

The literature advertising the event spelled out what the money goes towards:
