A big thank you to Shannon Doyle who organised a fundraiser in aid of the I.H.S. The 80’s & 90’s Night took place in the Martello Hotel & Bar in Bray on 17th May 2013. The choice of era went down well with all those who attended on the night, the music was great. Fancy dress was optional and some people really went all out to get into the spirit of things. During the course of the night, some very brave men had agreed to be waxed, all for a good cause. First up was Terry (Taz) Lyons, who had his back waxed, Terry took it all in his stride. Then David O’Hagan had his legs waxed, he put on a brave face but I think one or two strips made his eyes water. He was followed by Arthur Kurzeja, who must be a glutton for punishment as he had his chest and back waxed. Ouch! And last but not least was Thomas Cruise, who also had his chest waxed. Thomas, however, endured a painful experience much to the delight of his friends. A big thanks to the beautician on the night, Sarah Higgins who worked tirelessly all evening. Sarah did have a little assistance with pull a strip for a price, this was something I tried myself and may I say it was money well spent.
Also on the night, our young member, Nathan O’Hagan Doyle who raised over €150, with the help of his friend Naoise, had his head shaved. Nathan didn’t blink an eye as his lovely locks hit the floor, he is a brave fella.
And as if that wasn’t enough excitement for one night, there was also a raffle with a lot of prizes. Our thanks also to Shannon’s family, Paula, Lynn, Karen and Lorna, who helped source prizes and supported Shannon in this fantastic fundraiser.
Everyone had a great night and I am delighted to announce we raised €1,000. Thanks to everyone for their support.
