Newly created charity Charlotte’s Vision will host its first event on 31 December with a New Year’s Eve Ball at the Ard Rí House Hotel in Tuam.

The new charity, set up in partnership with National Breast Cancer Research Institute, was launched by the friends and family of Charlotte Sweeney, who passed away just before her 42nd birthday after the cancer in her breast spread to her liver.

The New Year’s Eve Ball will kick off with a drinks reception sponsored by John Davin and JCD sales, followed by a scrumptious four-course meal.

Guests will dance the night away with music by one of Galway’s best bands Pyramid who will help ring in the new year in style.

The fun will not stop there though, as DJ Benen Tierney takes guests into the early hours to ensure the start of the 2023 will be one to be remembered.

All proceeds from the night will go to the charity.

Chairperson of Charlotte’s Vision, Caroline Downey, said that they are very excited about the ball to see off 2022.

“This is Charlotte’s Vision’s first event which coincides with the first anniversary of Charlotte’s untimely passing,” said Caroline.

“A big thank you to everyone who has supported the night with a special thank you to Brocon Construction who are our main sponsor.”

Caroline Loughnane of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute, said they are delighted to partner with Charlotte’s Vision to help develop research into Metastatic breast cancer.

“A research-informed approach to cancer treatment is key and NBCRI’s mission is to raise funds in support of research to develop effective treatments and therapies to combat breast cancer.”

Caroline said that the New Year’s Eve Ball for Charlotte’s Vision in the Ard Rí House Hotel is a perfect opportunity for the public to support research into metastatic breast cancer carried out at the Lambe Institute, University of Galway under the directorship of Prof Michael Kerin.
