Virgin Media’s Ciara Doherty is the special guest at this year’s North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball.

Billed as a night of elegance and inspiration, the event takes place at the Silver Tassie Hotel on Friday, 1st December at 7.15pm.

This is the 13th breast cancer charity ball and the organisers are particularly keen to make sure that everyone knows that this is first and foremost a community event.

Máire Lynam, committee member, said “We see the Breast Ball as an opportunity for the whole community to gather together to acknowledge and support the tremendous work being done at Breast Centre North West. However, and perhaps more importantly, we gather to celebrate and remember.”

In an effort to make sure that anyone who wants to attend the ball is not put off by financial constraints, the committee has kept the ticket price at €50.

Máire adds:” If you want whole community involvement you have to consider many things. Ticket price is an important one and we have not raised the price since the first breast cancer ball.

Finally, she adds with a smile; “We even changed the ball date to ensure it didn’t coincide with The Toy Show …we really DO want everyone there!”

Guests are also reminded that they are not under pressure to dress in black tie, your ‘Sunday best’ or whatever is most comfortable is perfect!

The organising committee is delighted to welcome Ciara Doherty, presenter of Virgin Media’s The Tonight Show, as the celebrity guest at this year’s ball.

Barrister and former presenter of breakfast TV show “Ireland AM”, Ciara juggles her busy career with being mum to two young children.

Given her busy lifestyle the organisers of the Breast Ball are particularly appreciative of Ciara’s generosity in agreeing to be this year’s special celebrity guest.

Those attending the ball will also get to meet Mr. Peter Barry, Breast and Oncoplastic Surgeon at the Royal Marsden Hospital London, special Medical guest at this year’s event.

The night will start with a Drinks Reception followed by a four course meal & dancing the night away with the band Red Alert & a DJ after all that.

Tickets can be purchased at The Silver Tassie Hotel, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. Telephone No. 074 91 25619.

Once again this year the Silver Tassie is very generously offering their hugely successful Hotel Package – escape your busy life and relax on Friday 1st December – all for the incredible price of €110.00.
