The Annual Northwest Breast Cancer Charity Ball will be making a welcome return to the social scene on Friday 2nd December 2022.

This year’s Celebrity Guest is renowned RTE Television and Radio Presenter, Miriam O’ Callaghan.

A spokesperson for Action Breast Cancer, Ms O’ Callaghan says that she supports the work of cancer organisations because her 33-year-old sister died of cancer some years ago.

She said “We all know about cancer. It’s always very upsetting but in a sense it’s not until you are personally in touch with something that you realise how important awareness and knowledge is.”

This year the committee aims to continue to build on the previous success of the Ball and are excited that, once again, we will be returning to the Silver Tassie Hotel, Letterkenny for what promises to be a memorable night of fine food, music, companionship and of course great fun.

The Ball is a terrific way to connect with family and friends, whilst raising money that will help support research into breast cancer at Letterkenny University Hospital, patient comfort and aftercare through an outreach programme.

Speaking before this year’s launch of the Breast Cancer Ball, Mr. Michael Sugrue, Consultant Breast and General Surgeon at Letterkenny University Hospital states that the funds raised from the Ball help to translate research advances into clinical care locally.

Mr. Sugrue also pointed to the importance of the upcoming Ball in reconnecting people and bringing the community back together after what has been a very difficult couple of years.

We are set to host the Gala Charity Ball for the first time in two years and we would love to see you there. The night itself promises to be as exciting as ever with The Bentley Boys providing the music and the ever-popular Noel Cunningham in the role of MC.

The ticket price this year remains the same as before at €50.00. The night will start with a Drinks Reception at 7.15 p.m. after which a four-course dinner with wine will be served, with dancing to follow.

There will be spot prizes, an exciting raffle and an auction on the night – so keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages in the next few weeks for more information.

Tickets for the Ball are sure to sell quickly, so please book your tickets soon. All tickets can be purchased at The Silver Tassie Hotel, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal on Telephone No. 074 9125619.

The hotel is once again offering its hugely successful overnight accommodation on a Bed & Breakfast basis for the incredible price of €90.00 (now taking bookings).

So why not get a group together and join us for a tremendous and joy-filled night in the lead up to Christmas. That’s The Northwest Breast Cancer Charity Ball – Friday 2nd December – An Ideal Christmas Night Out!
