LauraLynn, Ireland's Children's Hospice are celebrating the success of their second in the Intercontinental Hotel in Ballsbridge. Over 420 supporters attended the gala, including the Heroes Ball corporate sponsors DCC and Marks & Spencer. Celebrating all the little heroes who benefit from the support of LauraLynn, the gala evening raised much-needed funds for the specialist palliative care LauraLynn provides to children with life-limiting conditions and their families. With a focus on enhancing quality of life, LauraLynn provides support from diagnosis, to end of life, and throughout bereavement with a range of practical, emotional and medical care for the whole family.
The event raised almost €75k for the charity through ticket sales, an auction (presided over by Robert Hoban of Allsops) and a raffle on the night.
RTE presenter Miriam O'Callaghan acted as MC for the evening. The ball was attended by a host of stars including Norah Casey, Alan Hughes and Sean Munsanj. Sean Munsanj was named Best Dressed Male on the night, while US model Brittany Mason was named Best Dressed Female.
