The Marymount Hospice Ball returned for its 14th year to kick off the Christmas season in Cork where guests enjoyed a spectacular night of great food, entertainment and special guests including Taoiseach Micheál Martin.
Held at the Radisson Blu hotel, Little Island this sell out event will add to the 1.65 million euro it has raised towards funding the ongoing work the hospice provides in palliative and respite care to the sick and elderly.
The event gets bigger and better each year, and continues to maintain and attract strong sponsorship from main event sponsors – Keanes Jewellers, Musgrave and Heineken.
The further generous sponsorship of auction prizes is worthy of mention. With a trip to Richard Branson’s Necker Island and a First Pitch at World Series Baseball Game as provided by the owner of World Series Champions Houston Astros causing a buzz of excitement throughout the room.
