Don and Pascal back by popular demand for Recovery Haven Ball!

Global fashion-designer sensation and husband guests of honour at charity's big fundraiser

Kerry's very own fashion designer to the stars Don O'Neill and husband Pascal Guillermie are back by popular demand from their home in New York as special guests at the Recovery Haven's gala ball in the Ballyroe Heights Hotel.

Taking place on Saturday, July 13, next the big annual ball for the vital cause promises all the glitz, glamour and fun of last year's event which raised in excess of €20,000 for the cancer support charity.

As well as a stunning four course meal, Don and Pascal have also lined up an amazing night of entertainment, with the incredibly talented O'Neill Sisters returning for a pre-dinner performance. The couple has also once again enlisted their own wedding band - the amazing Bentley Boys Band - to perform into the night.

A number of local sponsors have eagerly come on board to donate some remarkable spot prizes, including a limited edition print from both renowned artists Pauline Bewick and Poppy Melia; a luxury pamper-package courtesy of Expose Beauty, afternoon tea for two at Ballyseede Castle Hotel, while Kerry Airport and Ryanair have joined forces to offer one lucky winner return flights for two on any of Ryanair's routes from Kerry.

The best dressed lady, meanwhile, chosen once again by Orla Diffily, will once walk away with a dream prize of a THEIA gown of her choice, designed and kindly donated by Don.

The stellar event will kick off with a champagne and cocktail red carpet reception at the earlier time of 5pm, and just like last year, all guests will have the opportunity to have their photograph taken with Don and Pascal on arrival.

Speaking about the event, Don says he and Pascal are thrilled to be back to support Recovery Haven Kerry: "Pascal and I were overwhelmed with the out pouring of love, support and generosity for Recovery Haven at last summer's gala dinner in memory of my mom. The energy on the night was electric, the style was amazing and a great night was had by all," Don explained, "As the night was drawing to a close the requests began pouring in for us to please do this again next year, so we are coming back. Please join us and help create another fun filled memorable summer's night in aid of Recovery Haven"

Friend of the couple and Recovery Haven PR & Marketing officer, Marisa Reidy, said everyone at the charity is thrilled that Don and Pascal have decided to return and says everyone is already looking forward to another amazing night.

"We are indebted to Don and Pascal for agreeing to come back and do it all again his year," Marisa said, "Last year's event was an outstanding, sell-out success and raised over €20,000 for Recovery Haven which was just incredible. People were asking for tickets weeks ago, so we have no doubt this year's event will be another sell out and we cannot wait to do it all again. We cannot thank Don and Pascal for their amazing support."

Tickets for this year's event, priced at €75 each, are now available from Recovery Haven at 5 Haig's Terrace, Tralee on 066 7192122 or via email at marisa@recoveryhavenkerry.com. For more contact Marisa Reidy @ Recovery Haven Kerry on (086)7038127.
