North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball 2018

It’s was that time of the year again when the organising committee of the North West Breast Cancer Ball 2018 got together and organised a great night for a great cause.

Over 350 guests gathered in the Silver Tassie Hotel looking very glamorous for a night of fun, glamour , dancing and great food.

Special guest this year was the lovely Andrea Gilligan from Newstalk who delivered a great speech and accompanied by her sister Raissa.

Noel Cunningham compered the glitzy night keeping everyone on their toes!  

Majella O Donnell, was also there, a great friend of the Breast Ball whose generous donation of a week at her villa in Tenerife created a great buzz during the auction went for 3k.

The committee acknowledged the support of the sponsors local and national whose generosity year after year never ceases to amaze.  Several public representatives, local GP practices and representatives were present supporting the event.

The winner of the trip to Budapest kindly sponsored by Liberty Travel was Olive Doherty.

Lines were sold for €2 leading up to the ball making a total of €2,180. The auction raised a total of 6K.

Those who danced into the wee hours will know what a contribution the band made to the occasion, so a big thank you to the Bentley Boys.

Thanks also to Ciaran and Rose Blaney, Georgina Howley and staff at the Hotel for preparing a stunning venue and excellent meal as always.

Well done to the committee Mr. Michael Sugrue, Maire Lynam, Carolyn Davis, Patricia Hill, Eve Curran and Martina Malone for all their hard work ensuring a great night was had by all. 

Funds raised at the ball support the continued employment of a fulltime research assistant at Breast Centre North West and research fellows are also employed during the summer months. 

Research carried out at Breast Centre North West has been presented at national and international meetings. Funds are also used to support patient comfort at the clinic as well as aspects of community care including an outreach programme to those recovering from breast cancer.

In their generous support of the North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball 2018, ball attendees have contributed to this work.
