Proceeds of the Lord Mayor’s Charity Ball presented to the Alzheimer Society of Ireland

Proceeds from the Lord Mayor’s Charity Ball were presented by the Lord Mayor, Cllr. Brian Bermingham to the Alzheimer Society of Ireland on Tuesday, 2nd June 2009.

The Lord Mayor’s Charity Ball took place in the Rochestown Park Hotel, on Saturday, 21st March 2009.  Over €28,000 was raised from the function and the Lord Mayor was very thankful to all the companies and individuals who purchased tables and individual seats.

Speaking at the presentation, the Lord Mayor said “I would like to extend a special thank you on behalf of the city to those who turned out in such numbers on behalf of the Alzheimer Society. It is particularly gratifying given the present economic climate that so much was raised for such a deserving cause. I would especially like to thank the organizing committee -  both the volunteers and the staff of Cork City Council’s Corporate Affairs Directorate - for their tireless work in making this all happen.”
