The Marymount Hospice Ball, the highlight of Cork’s social calendar each year, had guests dancing the night away for a very worthy cause last night at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Little Island.
This is the 11th year of the Marymount Ball and, to date, the event has raised in excess of €1 million towards funding and maintaining the ongoing work the hospice provides in palliative and respite care to the sick and elderly.
Year on year the ball is a sell-out success, with no end in sight for the support and momentum behind this worthy charity event. The event gets bigger and better each year, and most importantly, so too does the generation of funds.The ball which is the first major Christmas event in Cork, continues to attract strong sponsorship from Cork companies Musgrave, Keanes Jewellers, Midleton Distillery, Heineken and Morgan McKinley & media sponsors Irish Examiner.
