May Day Gala Ball

Wednesday 31 March 2010

The Moyle District Council Chairperson and Ballycastle Chamber of Commerce are hosting a May Day Gala Ball in the Marine Hotel, Ballycastle in aid of the RISE Foundation.

Cllr Cara McShane, Chairperson of MDC said that: “Given the growing culture of addiction within Irish society, I wanted to do something to raise awareness and show my support for an organisation which helps families of people with addiction. The RISE (Recovery in a Safe Environment) Foundation, set-up by well-known singer and song-writer, Frances Black, was a fitting and most appropriate charity. Frances has a particular love and passion for this part of the world, especially Rathlin Island.”

The Chairperson of Ballycastle Chamber of Commerce, Paul Cochrane, added: “In continued support with Moyle District Council, the Chamber of Commerce is delighted to work together in supporting this project. As part of the Chamber’s Action Plan, community and social support is extremely important within our organisation. “Many businesses support local charities, and we are very excited to get behind this worthwhile cause. Everyone will know someone who has an addiction and we know the impact that addiction has on families. The Gala Evening will be a great social occasion while raising money for a much-needed charity. It also shows that positive partnership benefits the entire community.” Tickets for the event cost £30, on Saturday 1st May 2010, 7.30 pm in the Marine Hotel.
