The weeks leading up to Christmas may be gift guide central but the real meaning of the season is kindness. See the innkeeper giving Mary and Joseph some space in the barn and every Christmas movie ever made.

This Friday the Neurofibromatosis Association of Ireland (NF Ireland) is hoping that you can spread some cheer by attending their Enchanted Winter evening dinner in association with Divine boutique in the fabulous K Club. Frockadvisor star, and one of our favourite people, Brendan Courtney is on hosting duties for the sure-to-be-amazing charity fashion show.

Neurofibromatosis is a genetic neurological condition that can occur out of the blue and can affect sufferers daily lives and occurs in 1 in 3000 of the population. Depending on which strain one has, it can lead to mild learning difficulties or in extreme cases nervous system tumours?in the brain and spine. Profits from the night will be going towards the amazing services the much-needed NF Ireland offer – including a 24-hour Helpline, literature on the condition, genetic counselling service, information and support for sufferers and their families.

Tickets are €75 and include a drinks reception dinner, wine and fashion show. You can be purchase your tickets over phone (0894692176), at Divine boutique or email [email protected]
