All white on the night: Kilkenny’s first Wedding Ball raises money for great causes
PEOPLE in Kilkenny are being asked to band together to re-live the greatest day of their lives and vow to help out some worthy causes at the same time.
The first ever Wedding Dress Ball in Kilkenny is being organised in an effort to raise funds for the Samaritans, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Carlow Kilkenny Home Care Team.
Organiser Carmel Kenny stressed that while it’s a Wedding Dress Ball, anything goes.
Carmel said: “Which of us doesn’t want another opportunity to dress up in something that makes us look and feel good for a night with friends? This is the ideal opportunity to do that – and to support three fantastic charities.
“We chose all three charities that are very closer to everyone’s heart – three charities that do amazing work in Kilkenny and beyond.
“November can be a long, dreary month. We want to inject a little sparkle and magic into November by starting on the right note with the first ever Wedding Dress Ball.”
The ball will take place at the Springhill Court Hotel on Saturday, November 2. Tickets cost €50 each and are available on sale at the hotel or The Samaritans Shop on Kieran Street.
