We would like to thank everyone who supported and donated so generously to this great cause
Wexford’s wonderful people who attended the MRI Now Charity Ball in The Riverside Park Hotel Enniscorthy on Saturday 28th October and raised in excess of €30.000
Organised by Colm Neville of The Riverside Park Hotel in conjunction with us here at the Enniscorthy & District Chamber of Commerce together with Friends of Wexford General Hospital the full ticket prices & proceeds including a raffle went to the Wexford General Hospital Charity to Support their currant fundraising goal to raise €250.000 towards the purchase of an MRI Scanner to improve patient care at our hospital.
The black tie ball was sponsored by the Riverside Park Hotel, Bank of Ireland, Pallas Food. Numerous businesses made valuable donations towards the evening’s success and this included fabulous raffle prizes. Many people bought tickets for the event even though they were unable to attend. “The generosity of everybody has been astonishing and I find it impossible to find words to express my gratitude” said Ciaran Sheridan, Chairperson of Friends of Wexford General Hospital. Ciaran was delighted to welcome Mr. Aidan Buckley, Consultant Cardiologist at Wexford General Hospital, and Lily Byrnes, General Manager Wexford General Hospital, as guests on the night. Dr Buckley spoke about the absolute necessity of having MRI, a resource that every major hospital should now have on site.
“This evening’s event will assist greatly in fundraising for an MRI Scanner. To everybody who helped organise, all the sponsors, the donors and to all the staff here at the hotel thank you for your kindness and for your support. A special thanks to the Bank of Ireland staff in all 7 branches across Co Wexford who held a coffee morning which raised over €3,500 in aid of the MRI Now appeal.” said Ciaran.
“A sponsored run, a coffee morning or any event that will raise valuable funds, big or small, will go a long way to helping us hit our goal and secure an MRI for Wexford.
