BAM Sponsor Cork University Hospital Gala Ball (Aug 19, 2017)

Cork University Hospital (CUH) Charity is delighted to announce that its annual Gala Fundraising Ball, sponsored by BAM Ireland, will take place on Friday October 6th, at Fota Island Resort.

All funds raised at the Ball will go towards initiatives such as the refurbishment of the family room in the Emergency Department, as well as purchasing vital medical equipment for the Urology Unit in CUH Cancer Services at Cork University Hospital.

To date, over €90,000 has been raised from CUH Charity Gala Ball events, which has directly benefited cancer patients, the Children’s Unit and patients in the Neurology Unit at the hospital. It is hoped that bladder cancer patients and emergency services patients and their families will all benefit as a result of the funds raised from this year’s event.

Speaking about the upcoming Gala Fundraising Ball, Miriam Forde, CUH Charity said: “Since we had our first sell-out Gala Ball in 2015, the event has grown each year to become one of the most highly-anticipated not-for-profit events in the social calendar in Cork and the region. We are absolutely delighted that its huge success has had such a significant impact on our hospital and on the lives of our patients at CUH.”

Theo Cullinane, CEO, BAM Ireland, main sponsor of this year’s event, added: “BAM Ireland are delighted to sponsor the CUH Charity Gala Ball, a spectacular event for a very worthy cause”.

Over 300 guests will attend this gala ball with entertainment on the night from The Pat Fitz Band and a special guest MC. Raffle prizes on the night will include hotel packages for The Park Hotel, Kenmare, Parknasilla Resort & Spa, Sneem and Ashford Castle in Mayo as well as sought-after tickets for a Manchester United game.
