Cork ARC Cancer Support House has joined with Princes Street restaurateurs for a major fundraising event on the newly pedestrianised street.
Eat for Arc will see people treated to a taste of what Princes Street has to offer with a tasting menu created by the expert restaurants that line the street while raising much-needed funds for the cancer support service.
Cork ARC is gradually beginning to offer a range of support services to people with cancer and their families in person again after services moved online during the Covid-19 crisis.
The campaign asks the people of Cork to support Cork ARC by supporting their local eateries and restaurants and Eat for ARC by making a donation in the restaurant to ARC House.
Guests will also be treated to a performance by Cork songwriter John Spillane, along with more musical entertainment throughout the evening.
Paul Montgomery who runs Clancy's on Princes Street said he is “delighted to be hosting such an important event on the street” that is an “amazing opportunity” to showcase the variety of food available while raising funds for Cork ARC.
“The success of the Eat On The Street initiative which we have created here on Princes Street is all down to the spirit of cooperation and innovation between all of the businesses on the street and Cork City Council.
“We are delighted to be able to give something back to the local charity sector and to the people of Cork for whom this is a vital service,” he said.
Co-Chairperson of Cork ARC, Professor Seamus O'Reilly, thanked all of the traders on Prince's Street for their “generosity of spirit” in hosting the event which he said “promises to be a really special evening for all”.
The event will take place on Wednesday July, 29 at 6.30pm. Tickets are €300 and are sold on a per table basis with one ticket admitting four people to the event.
