Guests gathered at the Great Southern Killarney for a champagne reception in the stunning foyer prior to being seated in the magnificent Garden Room Restaurant.

The room was full as the event sold out immediately when the date was released.

This year the club will donate the proceeds to Down Syndrome Kerry and to local causes.

Guests enjoyed the tasty treats and there was no shortage of fancy food. People were delighted to get out and meet up with their friends at this popular event. During the afternoon there was a pianist, a singer, a speaker and a fashion show. The President of the Club Rayla Tadjimatova addressed the guests and said she was absolutely thrilled to be part of this group and to see all these people supporting the event. She is happy to see life resuming to some form of normality. She also told them that the next Rotary event is the Wine & Art evening on November 30 which is a big fundraiser. Artists can email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com for a registration form.

Ciara Irwin Foley has organised the Afternoon Tea since she started this event after being Club President 2008-2009.

"I'd like to thank all the members and local businesses who provided prizes for the raffle and door prizes. It is a day where everything is done voluntarily and all the extras are at no cost to the club so then all proceeds go to the chosen charities. Hopefully it will all happen again next year," she said.

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.”
