Sunshine & Umbrellas Charity Events continue their fun-filled campaign to raise funds for Cork ARC & Breakthrough Cancer Research with their Hats & Shades Summer Party
The party promises to be a light-hearted, fun filled night where a prize for best hat lies in store for one lucky and imaginative guest. A classic hits soundtrack will provide the backdrop to a summer’s night of fun party games and surprises, all in aid of the cancer research work provided by Breakthrough Cancer Research and the cancer support services offered by Cork ARC Cancer Support House.
Tickets are priced at just €15.00, and thanks to the continued generosity of Barry’s of Douglas, each ticket entitles guests to one complimentary drink each and complementary canapé food as well as free entry into a prize draw for a weekend break in Killarney. This support also means that all proceeds from door and raffle ticket sales will directly benefit the two charities.
ABOUT SUNSHINE & UMBRELLAS
Sunshine and Umbrellas is the brain child of Niamh Horgan and Chris McCarthy who wanted to give something back to two of Cork’s most deserving charities, Cork ARC Cancer Support House and Breakthrough Cancer Research, having experienced first-hand the great work done by both organisations. Niamh lost her sister-in-law Geraldine Horgan to cancer, while Chris’ wife Cathryn died from ovarian cancer in 2012.
Chris and Niamh are great believers in the support services offered by Cork ARC Cancer Support House which help with the devastating emotional and psychological impact a cancer diagnosis can have on patients and their families and they are also staunch advocates of the pioneering work of Breakthrough Cancer Research developing new treatments for primary and secondary cancers.
Since April of 2013, Chris & Niamh have raised almost €100,000 to support vital services provided by Cork ARC Cancer Support House and Breakthrough Cancer Research through their annual fundraising events; Fashion Shows in partnership with EY, Disco / BBQ events in partnership with Barry’s of Douglas, and Golf Classics at Douglas Golf Club
