A CABARET-style 'Rat Pack' tribute concert is being held on Saturday December 7th, to raise funds for the Cara Care Support Centre.

The show is being organised by Dundalk man Paul Brady and will be held in the Fairway Hotel, with a full repertoire of popular songs from the rat pack era.

A number of excellent local singers will be present on the night to lead the pack, including such talents as James Brennan, Barry Dunne, Paudie Breen, Leah Kirwin and organiser Paul Brady, himself, will also be taking to the stage to perform.

'The room will be done out in a cabaret style where people can sit together and have a drink if they like,' explained Paul.

'The idea for the Rat Pack show came about after a variety show I put on earlier this year, where we had Barry Dunne and James Brennan singing a couple of Rat Pack songs which brought down the house, as a result we now have a full show built around the Rat Pack theme!'

'If you are going to have a family get together this Christmas then why not make it this show and know that you are helping out a fantastic organisation.'

'There will also be a raffle with some fantastic prizes and a disco to follow for those who want to party on into the night.'

Paul explained that all funds will go to the Cara Cancer Support Centre, which aims to create a tranquil space where people living through the cancer experience can come together to share their experience, to get support from others as well as give support to others.

The centre will provide support for people who currently have cancer, have survived cancer, as well as those who carers, family, friends or neighbours.

Tickets for the concert on Saturday next, December 7th, are priced €10, and are available from the Ticketmaster outlet, New and Deli, Park Street.
