Mid West Simon Community are delighted to announce that their Annual Charity Ball will be taking place on Saturday 24th September at 6.30pm in the Limerick Strand Hotel, Limerick.  There will be a prosecco reception and music by the Capriccio String Quartet on arrival followed by a four course meal with a raffle and lots of prizes. JaYne who played at Electric Picnic last weekend will be performing after dinner, allowing everyone to dance the night away and have a great time.

The Mid West Simon Charity Ball is a fundraiser allowing people to get together to support Mid West Simon Foodbanks and new Social Grocery which will assist people in food poverty in Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary.  The Charity Ball will be the key high profile event in the Midwest and it will be a very much sought after occasion! The attire on the night will be evening wear and it will also be the perfect occasion to entertain clients or colleagues and network as well.  Tables are booking up fast, with a limited number of Tables left, so don’t delay and book your Table soon.

CEO of Mid West Simon Community, Ms. Jackie Bonfield said “I am really excited that we are hosting our Annual Charity Ball again this year. This will give us an opportunity to raise much needed funds for our Foodbank and Social Grocery amidst the rising costs of living and the numbers in homesless emergency accommodation having now increased to 10,568, the highest number ever on record by the Department of Housing.  All funds raised, will stay local in the Midwest.  I am looking forward to welcoming and speaking to all Guests on the 24th September.”  If you would like to book a Table or seat/s or would like more information on the Mid West Simon Community Annual Charity Ball, please contact Maura McMahon on 061 608980 (Dial 2) or maura.mcmahon@mwsimon.ie.
