Tickets now on sale for the event and several Killarney schools and clubs will get funds
It is a hugely important fundraiser for worthy causes in Killarney, so it is with great delight that Killarney Rotary Club has officially launched its Wine and Art Evening.
Over the years, it has raised significant funds for charities, and this year’s beneficiaries have now been announced and are selling tickets for one of Killarney’s top social events.
The club was delighted to welcome this year’s beneficiaries to launch the event on Wednesday at the Great Southern Hotel. These are Coolick NS, Gaelscoil Faithleann NS, Knockanes NS, Holy Cross Mercy NS and St Francis Special School along with Kerry Stars, Killarney Athletic AFC and Killarney Cougars Basketball Club. The Pilgrimage Trust will benefit from the raffle on the night.
The event returns this year on Wednesday, November 30, at 7.15pm at the Great Southern.
The current President of Rotary Rayla Tadjimatova addressed the invited guests and said how happy she is to be part of a wonderful club and how excited she is that the club’s main fundraiser is back. She thanked Daly’s SuperValu and Killarney Brewing Company for their continued support with this event.
She also thanked the artists and craftspeople who have registered to take part on the night. Many of them are delighted to have the opportunity to network and exhibit after a long break. Some have been involved since the beginning, and for more artists, this is their first time attending. There will also be a few craftspeople there on the night.
“A portion of all art sales will benefit the charities and community groups so please come along and get some of your Christmas shopping done at the event,” said Rayla.
Tickets are available to buy from all of the beneficiaries and cost €20.
