20th June - 'Lunch at Lisloughrey'
On June 20th the National Breast Cancer Research Institute (NBCRI) will hold its fifth ‘Lunch at Lisloughrey’ in the beautiful surroundings of Lisloughrey Lodge, Cong Co. Mayo. The fundraising lunch has become a popular diary date for ladies of the West and beyond. The day starts at noon with a Champagne reception on arrival sponsored by Lisloughrey Lodge. After lunch guests will be treated to some very special entertainment from comedian Frank Forde from RTE’s Liveline Funny Friday Show with Joe Duffy. A fashion show from Clarinbridge boutique, Squisito will be one of the highlights of the event and ‘Best Dressed Lady Competition’ which will be judged by award-winning milliner, Suzie Mahony. To help boost funding for the charity a silent auction will be held with many must have items including two paintings, one by celebrated Galway artist, Pam O’Connell who has exhibited nationally and international and whose work hangs in many collections and public buildings including Department of Agriculture, Radisson SAS Galway and NUI Galway. The other by a rising star of the art world, Colin Burke from Galway, a GTI Art graduate specialising in prints and oil painting who was recently accepted to the National Academy of Art and Design in Dublin. If you would like a day of fun away from it all in the beautiful surroundings of Lisloughrey Lodge while supporting breast cancer research, tickets are €65 and available by calling Mairin at NBCRI.
