A much loved member of Gort’s Brazilian community she died on January 4.
The organisers of the fundraiser say it cost her family a “huge amount” of money to bring her body back to Brazil.
“Therefore we are having a fundraiser night out which is also coinciding with Valentine’s weekend to ensure there is a crowd around.”
Tickets are €10 each or €15 for a couple and are available from O’Grady’s Bar or on the door on the night. All proceeds are going to the late Ms Vierira’s family.
