Just a quick note, and a piece of advance notice.
The 2006 Letterkenny Mayor’s Ball will take place on Friday, May 5th in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny. The charity has been chosen, and will be announced soon. There are a few more details to follow, such as the band, and they will be revealed soon.
I’ll be adding more information here as we announce it. I’m very excited by the event, and honoured to be able to do my bit for the charity that will be benefitting. Sorry to be so vague, but there’s a few small details to be worked out.
The Mayor’s Ball was established by Cllr Ciaran Brogan in 2002. The event usually raises between E20,000 and E30,000 for a local charity, chosen each year by the Mayor. Last year, Cllr Dessie Larkin raised E31,000 for the Donegal Youth Services, and hosted a fantastic evening. This year’s ball has alot to live up to, but I am very hopeful we will be able to have a very memorable evening.
Update: The charity for this year’s ball is the Donegal Hospice. Thanks to everyone who has supported this event so far, by buying tables, giving sponsorship or offering their help.
