More than 300 ladies supported the 6th annual Shine Ladies Charity Lunch hosted by The Clayton Cork City Hotel on Saturday 10th of June. The event supports the Shine Centre for Autism who provide services and support for children and families affected by autism in Cork city and county. Summer fashion was the order of the day as the ladies looked stunning in an array of bright summer colours as they arrived for the champagne reception prior to the event. Each guest received a beautiful gift from the Event Sponsors Human & Kind Natural Skin Care, Yves Rocher and beautiful handmade chocolates from Leonidas. The Ladies then enjoyed a beautiful four course meal in the Pegasus Suite overlooking Cork City. The Shine Lunch is now a major event on Cork’s social calendar and the event was sold out within days of being announced. Laura Crowley of Shine thanked the many guests for attending and the many sponsors for their support in making the event such a success. All funds raised at the event support the services provided to children and adolescents with autism at the Shine Centre.
