We can enjoy a spectacular evening in Paris without having to leave Donegal next month at the Moulin Rouge Charity Ball.

On Sunday 29th October 2017 i.C.A.R.E. are delighted to announce another opportunity to dust off your “glitzy dress” or “tuxedo” and take to the dance floor of the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, Buncrana.

iCARE Ltd is a local parent-run organisation which provides respite, training, support and information for families who have children with autism from the Inishowen region of Donegal.

i.C.A.R.E. social nights are an eagerly anticipated event on the Inishowen social calendar and the group is busy behind the scenes organising a “Moulin Rouge” themed night.

This exciting themed event will feature a champagne reception, an appetising meal, followed by the lively “Lee Roy Band” and disco.

This year the night will have celebrity guests former Hollyoaks and Emmerdale star Ayden Callaghan and his TV presenter wife Sarah Jane Honeywell. Ayden Callaghan is an actor of both stage and screen, best known for playing the part of Joe Roscoe on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks and Miles De Souza in British ITV series Emmerdale.
