Speaking about the event, Lavin explained, ?I set up a committee of Kildare girls a few years back with?Margaret?Beere, Aileen?Morrin, Sheila Zebedee, Caroline O’Brien,?Ber?Lowe, Mary Dunne, Anna McMahon & Teresa Forde. We’ve been running events for charity, such as St Vincent de Paul, ever since. This year, we’re delighted to be able to help Peter?McVerry?expand his homeless services in our county. Many local companies took tables for what was really fun and festive Party Night”.

Patricia had those in attendance all rocking?to her new band “City Chic“.? Artistes?Mundy?&?Paddy Casey?played their unique style of music for such the great cause.?Kathy Nugent‘sang some Shirley?Basseywhile?Lorraine Keane brought her own style and glamour to the night alongside?Brian Purcell.?
