Fundraising Campaign to Raise Funds for the Victims of The Berkeley Balcony Tragedy

Hi, Michelle here –
I am hosting an event with some friends on 31st  October in the Arklow Bay Hotel. It is part of a fundraising campaign to raise funds for the victims of The Berkeley Balcony Tragedy and in particular Aoife Beary who is a daughter of a good friend of mine. Aoife has been transferred back to Ireland where she is a patient in the National Rehabilitation Hospital and is making progress. The family are facing very hefty medical bills from the United states and need to provide Aoife with lifelong support so any support you can give is gratefully appreciated.
So,  if you are not doing anything on 31st would love to see you in The Bay for live music and entertainment. Tickets are on sale from me and I will leave some in reception in Killarney Road, Bray and in Ballyraine tomorrow. They are 15 euro each so all donations welcome. Let me know if you are coming so I have  numbers for food. You can book a table and bring some friends. You can even dress up! ‘boogie’ is the theme so get those platforms on and flares out…some of you may never have put them away!!!….or come as you are…and just have some fun.
Great spot prizes as well!
Charity Number is: Trust.
Hope you can make it.🍷👠
Best Regards
