Preparations are well underway for the third ‘Roundstone for Fun’ fundraising event which takes place in the Community Centre, Roundstone on Saturday 10th August. This popular event was set up by husband and wife Greig and Anna Sweeney with the dual purpose of raising money for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute, a national charity that funds a comprehensive research program at the Lambe Institute for Translational Research, NUI, Galway and also to help fund the development of the Roundstone Community Centre to attract business to the area. The event has grown from strength to strength and has now become a yearly highlight for the local community.
The fun begins at 8pm this year with music from Controversial Allstars, led by Dave Brown from PictureHouse with guest vocalist, Voice of Ireland finalist, Ingrid Nadsem. The evening will feature lots of spot prizes and a special fundraising auction with Colm O’Donnellan from O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers on the gavel.
Anna and Greig are delighted to have Connemara Catering provide all the food for the event. The hall will be decorated by Caroline and Alan Hughes of Festive Decorations and will no doubt look even more incredible than last year. Sweeney’s Garage and their suppliers have generously stepped in to cover the cost of the event so all monies raised from ticket sales will go directly to the two causes.
Tickets are €50 each and can be purchased from www.roundstoneforfun.ie. If you cannot attend, you can still support the event by making a donation on the Website.
