2016 is the sixth year with Dell as the lead partner to the Irish Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day campaign. To mark this milestone and to officially launch the campaign, Dell is holding a breakfast reception.

As part of the reception Dell will be hosting local school children for a special Daffodil Day-themed MegaDojo, where they will learn more about the magic of code by ‘coding a daffodil.’

John O’Mara, Cork Site Leader at Dell Ireland and Executive Director, Finance, Dell Software will address the audience on the day.

The invitation-only breakfast will take place on Friday, February 5th 2016 at 9.45am in City Gate Park, Mahon, Cork.
