Floortech, Brown Thomas and the Induchem Group have joined forces with Cork ARC for the 2019 Cork ARC Spring Ball in association with Sunshine & Umbrellas - Cork ARC’s first major fundraising event for our new premises.

The Cork ARC Spring Ball in association with Sunshine & Umbrella’s is the first event planned to drive our €1.5m fund for the redevelopment of Sarsfield House, from an 8,000 sq ft period home into a state of the art cancer support facility for all those in Cork whose lives have been affected by cancer.

Cork ARC have acquired Sarsfield House, a significantly larger building than our current premises on O’Donovan Rossa Road, because of the growing demand for our much-needed services. We continue to see increased demand in terms of visitor numbers and access to suitable spaces for our professional, confidential supports, available free of charge. Our programme of services include counselling, therapeutic massage, information and education, and group programmes designed to improve the health and wellbeing of both cancer patients and their families.

For many reasons and in many ways, the success of the Cork ARC Spring Ball in association with Sunshine & Umbrellas will enormously impact all of our futures and all support is greatly valued by Cork ARC Cancer Support House.

The ball promises to be a wonderful night for supporters - guests will be welcomed from 7pm with a drinks reception followed by a four course meal with wine. Our MC for the night is Munster Rugby Legend – Donncha O’Callaghan. We will host a fabulous prize draw, with prizes donated by many generous donors. Music will be provided by the ever popular Papa Zitas followed by a DJ so our guests can dance their hearts out.


Our sincere thanks to our main sponsors, Floortech, Brown Thomas and the Induchem Group.
