Dundalk Chamber of Commerce is planning to host a Christmas Charity lunch which will take place on Friday the 13th December at 1pm in the Crowne Plaza Hotel Dundalk.
This is the second year the event has been hosted and money raised from last years lunch was donated to three main charities and also gave one deserving child a free trip to Euro Disney worth €2000.
Travis Foley from the Redeemer School was selected last year and had a fantastic time in Euro Disney.
All those attending the lunch this year are being asked to take an unwrapped toy with them to create a toy mountain at the event which will be donated to St. Bridget’s School and other local charities.
During the event the Chamber also plan to make a special award to one child and their family, for whom a Special Award case has been made in relation to their battle with a particular challenge, physical or otherwise.
This will be in the form of a €2000 voucher for a trip to Euro Disney for a family of four.
If you know a child who may be worthy of such an opportunity, please send a short precise letter (approx. 150 words) to the Treasurer, Dundalk Chamber of Commerce, Unit 4, Partnership Court, Park St. Dundalk in support of the child/ family whom you would like to nominate. You can also email to Brenda@dundalk.ie Deadline for submissions is Friday, November 7.
Please note that success with your nomination cannot be promised as places are limited, so do not raise any hope with the family at this stage.
