Several Galway charities are set to benefit from Mayor Pearce Flannery’ Charity Mayors Ball on May 11 next in the Galway Bay Hotel, Salthill.
The Mayoral Ball is a black tie charity event raising much needed funds for local charities and is regarded by most as the highlight of the social calendar.
It promises to be a special evening with Mayor of Boston, Marty Walshe in attendance after receiving the award of the Freedom of Galway City earlier that day along with a host of celebrity musicians and many political personalities.
The event commences with a drinks reception at 7.00pm followed by dinner at 8pm and dancing and music by Full Circle and a host of special musical guests late into the night.
There will be an auction on the evening and a host of spot-prizes to the draw. This year Mayor Pearce Flannery is raising funds for four charities — Cancer Care West, Rosabels Rooms, Childline and Cardiac First Responders.
Speaking to the Advertiser, Mayor Pearce Flannery said it is wonderful to be in a position to organize an event that will have such a positive impact on worth charities.
“All profits will go directly to the charities involved and will be used in our local areas. It would be great to see a full house as the more people attending the greater the charitable impact.
“I would welcome any spot-prizes or auction items also as these will be of great benefit to this worthwhile fundraiser. Maybe along the way we will all get to have a little fun as well,” he said.
