The annual Surgeon Noonan Ball is set to take place on February 4th 2017.
The Rochestown Park Hotel will play host to the society’s 40th anniversary, ‘A Night to Remember’ and UCC’s Surgeon Noonan Society wishes to invite all members of the local community and beyond to “dine and dance the night away”.
The evening will commence at 6pm with a traditional champagne reception. Thereafter, everyone will be seated to enjoy a stellar five course meal, followed by our raffle, and an opportunity for whirling and twirling to the music of the nationally acclaimed Cork Pops Orchestra, conducted by Evelyn Grant of RTÉ Lyric FM.
The funds raised from the ball, along with efforts throughout the year, will directly assist the hospitals which students volunteer at in Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and Ghana this summer.
The charity was was founded in 1977 to commemorate the late Tim Noonan, a UCC Medical School surgeon. It is run voluntarily by 4th year medical students.
Tickets and details of the ball can be found on the society’s Facebook event page and on surgeonnoonansoc.ucc.ie
