THE family of Tralee man Peter O'Sullivan who battled Motor Neuron Disease until his death earlier this year is organising a memorial fundraising event to raise money for the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association and Kerry General Hospital's Palliative Care Unit.
On Saturday October 19 Mr O'Sullivan's family will host a special charity fundraiser, billed as a "A night of music fashion and fun" at The Brandon Hotel.
The night will include a fashion show staged by the Kerry based Upfront model agency and including some celebrity models from the worlds of politics and sport as well as performances by Eireann Elvis, Midnite Cafe and the students of the Tim Landers School of Performing Arts.
The show has been put together by the family of Marian Park man Peter O'Sullivan who passed away in May and who had suffered from Motor Neuron Disease.
Speaking on behalf of the O'Sullivan family Peter's daughter Tracey Keane said they had decided to organise the event as both a tribute to her father and as a thank you to everyone who helped him in his fight against Motor Neuron Disease.
"We are doing this in memory of a loving father and husband and as a thank you to the Motor Neuron Association and the Palliative Care Unit in Tralee for all their help and support," she said.
Tickets cost €20 and are available now from Carraig Donn, Jasmine and the Glam Pod Tralee.
