One of the town's best loved fundraisers is back and after a pandemic break is the perfect place to catch up with friends.

Killarney Rotary Club Wine & Art Evening will return this year on Wednesday, November 30 at 7.15pm at the Great Southern Killarney.

The club were delighted to welcome this year’s beneficiaries to launch the event on Wednesday of this week at the hotel.

Tickets cost €20 and are available to buy from all of the beneficiaries including Coolick NS, Gaelscoil Faithleann NS, Knockanes NS, Holy Cross Mercy NS, St Francis Special School, Kerry Stars, Killarney Athletic AFC and Killarney Cougars Basketball Club. The Pilgrimage Trust will benefit from the raffle on the night.

The current President of Rotary, Rayla Tadjimatova, addressed the invited guests and said how excited she is that the club's main fundraiser is back.

She thanked Daly’s SuperValu and Killarney Brewing Company for their continued support with this event as well as the artists and crafters who have registered to take part on the night.

"Many of them are delighted to have the opportunity to network and exhibit after a long break," she said.

"Some have been involved since the beginning and for more artists this is their first time attending. There will also be a few crafters there on the night. A portion of all art sales will benefit the charities and community groups so please come along and get some of your Christmas shopping done at the event."

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
