Entrepreneur and TV presenter Suzanne Jackson has joined forces with us to host our first Christmas Gala Ball in Dublin’s Marker Hotel.
The event is sponsored by Huawei which means that all proceeds from ticket sales will go directly toward helping Cliona’s families.
The event, set to take place on 7th December, aims to raise funds for Cliona’s Foundation – the goal on the night is to raise €50,000 which will benefit up to 20 families.
Speaking about the importance of fundraising events for the organisation, Cliona’s Co-Founder and CEO Brendan Ring said: “So many families with sick children experienced, and continue to experience, the significant non-medical costs of caring for a child with a life-limiting condition. We are incredibly grateful to Suzanne for her support again this year and her help in ensuring the Gala’s success. We are also very grateful to Huawei who have sponsored the gala. Families need help, we have seen a 59% increase in applications from the same period last year and they need support more than ever, Cliona’s is proud to play our part in helping out families in need.”
Calvin Lan, CEO, Huawei Ireland commented: “Huawei is proud to sponsor the inaugural Cliona’s Foundation Christmas Gala Ball. We are Huawei is pleased to support this small charity, which has no large fundraising machine, to help it raise much-needed funds to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Through our sponsorship, we hope to raise awareness of the incredible work carried out by Cliona’s Foundation and we encourage others to join us in supporting their vital services. Huawei’s sponsorship of this Gala Ball shows our dedication to supporting causes that matter and, by doing so, building a stronger, more caring community. The Foundation carries out such great work and is deserving of all the help it can get.”
