Donegal Town boutique owner Stella McGroarty has proudly presented the proceeds of her charity fashion show to two very deserving causes.

€3,890 was raised at the Stella Boutique charity gala event in Harvey’s Point last month, which attracted a large number of fashion fans for an afternoon of style and fun.

The event raised €3,000 in support of Cancer Care West, while a raffle also raised €890 for local woman Deirdre Dillon’s fund for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Stella was back at Harvey’s Point last weekend to officially present two large cheques to Deirdre Dillon and to Grainne McGettigan from Cancer Care West.

Harvey’s Point General Manager Noel Cunningham joined the celebrations to congratulate Stella on another successful fundraiser.
