Raheen Woods Hotel in Athenry is hosting the Marie Keating Foundation Bags and Bling fundraiser next week. Following the death of their mother Marie in 1998, the Keating family committed themselves to fundraising to alleviate the hardship for both patients and their families.
The event is taking place on Friday October 28 and a full itinerary of events are organised throughout the day, culminating with the Bags and Bling Fundraiser from 8pm. New and previously loved handbags and jewellery will be on display to be purchased with all proceeds going to the foundation.
It will also have a chocolate fountain, cup-cakes, canapés and cocktails. There is a clothing, shoes and accessory expose with Born Clothing, Lousha, Guna Geal, Tranquillity Spa, Beattys Jewellery Cleaning, and much more.
The Marie Keating mobile unit will be at the hotel and will have specialised nurses giving cancer awareness talks at 1.15pm and 3.15pm.
The organisers would very much like to thank all of the local businesses for their support and in particular Poppy Seed which is sponsoring cup-cakes and Corrib Foods who are sponsoring the canapés, and the staff members of Raheen Woods Hotel and their friends who have helped organise the whole event.
Finally should you have a pre-loved handbag or item of jewellery that has been replaced by a more loved item you can bring it along for this very worthy cause.
