THE AMAZING Apples will play Kudos Nightclub in Keanes, Oranmore, on December 6 at 9pm, to raise funds for the For Pete’s Sake charity.
The band have won acclaim for their mix of country, folk, and bluegrass, and for their Three or Four Shoes EP. Support is from RudyTrixX whose music ranges from soul to indie.
This will be the final For Pete’s Sake event of 2013. So far the charity has raised more than €50,000 for Pete, a 40-year-old father of three from Oranmore who was suddenly struck by cancer earlier this year. Following months of extensive chemotherapy it became apparent the only option remaining was for Pete to travel to New York for life-saving treatment and cancer drugs that are not available in Ireland. Pete is currently undergoing this treatment which is hugely expensive and estimated to be well in excess of €150,000.
Tickets are €15 and available from Spar Bluebell Woods; SuperValu, Oranmore; Keanes Bar, Oranmore; and Grealish’s, Maree; or at the door on the night.
