Upcoming Fundraising Events at Croí na Gaillimhe.

We've been busy here at Croí na Gaillimhe planning some exciting  new fundraising events!

First off, we thought that  hosting a monthly movie night here at CNG would be a nice little way to ease into those cold winter months; the first one taking place on Wednesday the 26th of September from 7-9pm.
The theme is 'Classics' and we'll be showing some great old time films that young and old alike will enjoy in the cosy surroundings of our idyllic centre.
As it is a fundraising event, with our volunteers kindly offering up their time to help run the event -we  request an entry fee of €5 but we'll provide the film, popcorn and drinks so all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
(Do let us know if there's a particular film you'd like to see shown and we'll do our utmost to try and  cater to all tastes.)

Secondly, we are extremely excited to announce that we'll be holding a 'Masquerade Ball' in association with another important charity, Console in the Salthill Hotel on the 28th of October.
This promises to be a fantastic night with a four course meal, full live band and DJ and lots of great prizes to be won on the night.
Tickets are priced at €50 and can be purchased here at the centre. Call us on (091) 895203 for more details or pop over to our facebook page where we'll also be posting regular updates and info on this event.
As always, we appreciate your support!

We will be posting more info about this event on the blog and on our facebook page in the very near future.

If you are interested in hearing more about either of these fabulous fundraising events,
please call us on (091) 895203 and we'll happily give you all the details you need!
