THE Lord Mayor is urging Corkonians to dust off their dinner jackets and polish their dancing shoes for the annual spring ball in March.
The black-tie ball will be held in the Concert Hall on March 23 and will feature performances from Cork’s local talent, including local crooner The Loungeman and DJ Colm O’Sullivan.
Lord Mayor Mick Finn said: “Following on from over €25,000 raised at the coffee morning and the Christmas Concert, the Lord Mayor’s Charity Spring Ball in aid of local groups, promises also to be the highlight of Cork’s social calendar.
“All proceeds above costs will be distributed to up to six charities and those who attend on the night will enjoy the very best of Cork food, drinks and entertainment.”
“Tickets can be bought in pairs or on a table basis so come along for a great night while supporting those who do so much for others.”
Proceeds from the Lord Mayor’s Charity Ball will be donated to six local charities that play a valuable role in improving the lives of people across the city and county.
They include charities working with children, the blind, disabled and the poorest people in society.
They are: Cork City Hospitals Children’s Club, Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, The Rainbow Club Cork Centre for Autism, Cope Foundation, Marymount Hospice and St Vincent De Paul (SVP).
The Lord Mayor’s Charity Spring Ball will be held in the Concert Hall on City Hall.
Tickets for the event are priced at €100 or a table of 10 for €1,000 and can be bought from Council Services by contacting Sarah O’Callaghan on: (021) 4924364 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
