Our Breast Cancer Ireland Christmas Lunch was held on Friday, December 8th at Marco Pierre White’s Restaurant in Donnybrook, Dublin 4. The annual fundraising Christmas lunch, kindly supported by Very Ireland – Ireland’s leading online retailer – as part of a three year partnership with the charity, saw over 150 friends and supporters of the Breast Cancer Ireland community gather together to celebrate the milestones, treatment breakthroughs and research achievements of the charity to date this year and to help fundraise for further critical research, education and awareness programmes. Guests enjoyed a pre lunch drinks reception sponsored by Xin Gin, a Very festive fashion show, showcasing looks for festive and Winter season directed by well known stylist Cathy O’Connor, and a Very skincare and beauty talk from Sinead Kavanagh of The Beautiful Truth.
Following this, guests enjoyed a panel discussion led by Elaine Crowley with Breast Cancer Ireland Ambassadors who shared their own very personal experience of breast cancer and their remarkable resilience in the face of the disease. The festivities continued well into the evening, kicking off the Christmas season!
