Lee Strand has joined forces with Comfort for Chemo Kerry for this year's annual Lee Strand 550 night at the Kingdom Greyhound Stadium on May 26.

The support of Lee Strand will allow Comfort for Chemo Kerry to generate much needed funds with all admissions, auction, raffle, restaurant bookings and other monies raised on the night going directly towards the charity. The event will be a fabulous evening at the stadium with something for everyone and there are several ways to support this wonderful cause.

Speaking at the launch of the event, Gearoid Linnane CEO stated, “Lee Strand continues to support one of Ireland’s most prestigious races, the Lee Strand A3 550 at the Kingdom Greyhound Stadium. Our long-standing sponsorship of this race spans over four decades and we are delighted to welcome back a charity element to our event. This year our chosen charity is Comfort for Chemo Kerry, all proceeds raised on the evening will all be donated directly to the charity. It promises to be a great evening out for everyone while supporting a wonderful charity in our community.”

In addition to the racing action, everyone will be kept well entertained with MC Billy Keane to take us through the night. Best Dressed Lady and Best Dressed Gent will be judged on the night by fashion stylist Danny Leane with fabulous prizes for both. Plus, there will be an auction on the night with some fantastic items up for grabs and lots of chances to win in the raffle, which has been very generously supported with prizes from local businesses.

There will also be a family aspect to the night with entertainment for all ages with lots of novelty events with face painting, bouncy castle, music after racing and Mighty Mikey Milk from Lee Strand will be at the stadium to meet the younger ones.

Tickets are available at the entry gate, costing €10 and kids are free. The first race of the night goes off at 7pm with doors open at 6pm. Table bookings for the restaurant can be made either by e-mailing info@comfortforchemokerry.com or on 089 2240357.
