The fundraiser will kick off at 9pm and will feature everything from country music to line dancing, bonfires to Texas BBQ buffets, rodeo bulls to spot prizes and a disco to wrap up what is expected to be a great night.
Supermarket manager Joe Lynch extends a warm welcome to everyone. “Get suited and booted and come along to what will be a great night in aid of Cancer Care West. Tickets are €20 and are available from Kavanagh.s SuperValu in Clifden and Keogh’s, Ballyconneely.”
The “Help Us to Help Others” campaign, which was launched in April, involves staff members from Kavanagh’s SuperValu undertaking a series of novel fundraising events, engaging their customers and communities along the way in their quest to raise €10,000 for Cancer Care West.
