ENTERTAINMENT: Things to do and see in Cork

Treat yourself and the ladies in your life to the perfect gift this Christmas, an afternoon of fashion, glamour and pampering at the Women’s Little Christmas Afternoon Tea and Fashion Showcase in aid of Breakthrough Cancer Research. The event will take place on Saturday, 6 January 2018 in the luxurious surroundings of the Cork International Hotel.

MC Sandra Murphy, Event Manager with The Trigon Hotel Group (The Cork International Hotel, The Cork Airport Hotel and The Metropole Hotel), will return to MC duties for the afternoon, which promises to be the best ever with a host of new faces.

Guests will be treated to a drinks reception on arrival, hair demonstrations by Sabrina Hill of New Hair Revolution and Kopper Hair Salons and make-up demos by professional make-up artist Erin Kelleher.

Sumptuous Afternoon Tea will follow with some of Cork’s fashion highlights from top boutiques. The afternoon will be brought to an elegant end with the dulcet tones of Velvet music duo. Also, not to be forgotten is our best dressed lady competition, goody bags and much, much more.

Orla Dolan, Director of Fundraising with Breakthrough Cancer Research stated, “Nollaig na mBan or Women’s Little Christmas is a fabulous excuse to catch up with the ladies in your life after a hectic Christmas and is a perfect excuse to have some well-deserved ‘Me’ time. And for a great cause. This year we want to celebrate cancer survivors and honour those who have passed away due to the disease”.

Having already progressed seven treatments progress from the laboratory to clinical trial, they work closely with multiple hospitals in Cork to ensure their research is responding to the needs of patients with cancers that do not respond to conventional therapies.
