Second year of ‘Fun for Roundstone’

in Roundstone

Preparations are underway for the second ‘Roundstone for Fun’ fundraising event, which takes place in the Community Centre, Roundstone, on Saturday August 11.

The event was set up by husband and wife Greig and Anna Swneey with the purpose of raising money for Breast Cancer Research, a national charity that funds a comprehensive research programme at the Lambe Institute for Translational Research, NUI Galway. Funds are also donated to the development of the Roundstone Community Centre.

Last year the event was a huge success – and great fun! – raising €10,600, of which €5,300 went to Breast Cancer Research and €5,300 to Roundstone Town Council. This year the couple have given themselves the target of €15,000

The event kicks off at 8pm with the ever-popular Bently Boys getting the fun started. Anna and Greig are delighted to have the ongoing support of the award-winning Camile Thai Restaurant, which provides all the food for the event. The hall will be decorated by Caroline and Alan Hughes of Festive Decorations, and will no doubt look even more incredible than last year. Sweeney’s Garage and their suppliers have generously stepped in to cover the cost of the event, so all monies raised from ticket sales will go directly to the two causes.

The tickets are €50 each and can be purchased on www.roundstoneforfun.ie – those who cannot attend can still support the event by making an donation on the website.
