TICKETS for the charity fundraising event ‘It’s Broadway’ go on sale on Monday.
The show runs at the Rochestown Park Hotel on Saturday, April 13, and will raise funds for a new renal support centre for the Irish Kidney Association.
In excess of 40 dancers from across Cork city and county, most of them with little or no previous dance experience, have volunteered their time to practice over the next few weeks and show off their Broadway dancing skills.
Organising group, Strictly No Limits 4 Cork, is seeking to build upon its previous experience of running events for Cork charities and says this is “guaranteed to be another fantastic night of family entertainment”.
Construction of the new IKA Renal Support Centre in Cork started in January this year and the aim is to include six en-suite bedrooms, a comfortable sitting/day room, and a fully equipped kitchen.
It will be open all year round and will provide free accommodation for all kidney patients and their families.
The centre will serve the needs of the families of kidney patients, as well as patients who have to travel long distances for outpatient appointments, and any person affected by kidney disease who is in need of support.
Strictly No Limits 4 Cork committee chairperson, Sinéad McGrath, said the dance show will help raise much-needed funds towards opening a new renal support centre near Cork University Hospital.
She thanked Cork’s Everyman Theatre for hosting the launch.
“The CUH currently provides renal care, including dialysis, for patients with kidney disease, and needs to cover patients who travel from as far as Tipperary, Skibbereen, Schull, and Limerick,” she said.
Tickets are on sale from www.uTicket.ie and are priced at €25 each.
