We are growing bigger and stronger by the day and people are recognising the efforts of the club and all involved, so much so that our Charity Partners list for 2019 keeps growing and growing. We are deeply touched and grateful that so many companies and businesses are coming on board to supporting. Please check out our partners and take in their efforts to help us.
Things got off to a great start at the launch of a new Charity Partner for 2019 - AIB banks. All 27 banks in Cork City & County will be supporting the Rainbow Club in our NEW HOME APPEAL. The management and teams all got involved in a Spinathon and it was great to feel the buzz amongst everyone coming together for our cause. We look forward to the coming months.
The Carrigaline Court Hotel & Leisure Centre are one of our Charity Partners for the year 2019 have been a great support to the club since it began. We've held all our Masquerade Balls here to date. One of this years Masquerade Balls which will be held on 5th & 12th October has already sold out!
We held our Dress to Impress event here April 7th which was a great success and raised €4,217.60! Thank you to Nessa O'Connell & Hannah Colbert and of course the team at the hotel - who were amazing.
This year for Easter the Carrigaline Court Hotel has chosen us as one of the recipients of the Corks Childrens Easter Egg Appeal and has generously donated 500 Easter eggs for our children and young teens.
