Marymount Hospice is close to the Lady Mayoress'  heart as its palliative care team fulfilled her fathers dying wish by caring for him at home in his final days. Georgina Fitzgerald's father, Ned Healy died, aged 86, over five years ago.In the days  before he died, Georgina and her 11 brothers and sisters all came together at the family home in Knocknaheeny so they could be by their dads side. She said "It was actually an amazing weekend and I will take it to my grave. Marymount gave us the gift of time with our Dad. We were all there in the house, husbands and all, camp beds everywhere for a weekend. If it wasn't for what Marymount did, my fathers wish to die at home wouldn't have been fulfilled".

The Lady Mayoress has acknowledged the support of the business community in Cork in supporting the event annually and expressed her wish that the people of Cork would support the event as fully as they had in the past and raise much needed funds for the organisation.
