Wicklow Hospice to benefit from Ladies Christmas event at Woodenbridge

The Woodenbridge Hotel and Wicklow Hospice have joined forces to organise a special Christmas Ladies Night, with Christmas Market and Fashion Shows, taking place on Friday 16th November.

The gala evening event will begin with a Christmas Market featuring a selection of hand-picked craftspeople, beauty and clothing retailers.  Guest will be able to mingle amongst the stall holders with a glass of prosecco in hand, while soaking up the Christmas atmosphere.

A seasonal three course meal will follow, punctuated by three fashion shows, after the serving of each course. Fayebella, McMullan’s and Avoca Handweavers will each showcase their fashions for the Christmas season, as guests sit back and relax at their tables.  During the evening, a panel of judges, to include Wicklow Hospice patrons Ireland rugby star, Shane Byrne and TV3 panelist and former Image magazine editor, Tina Koumarianos, will reveal  three winning “Best Dressed Ladies” on the night.  The party will continue into the night with music from Today FM DJ Phil Cawley.

The Wicklow Hospice Foundation was founded in 2009 with the dream of building a Hospice for the people of County Wicklow. Since then great steps have been taken by the voluntary efforts of many people, and construction has commenced.   Sinead Tarmey of Wicklow Hospice says, “We are delighted that the Woodenbridge Hotel has choosen Wicklow Hospice as the beneficiary of this fundraiser.  It promises to be a great night for groups of ladies wishing to do some Christmas gift shopping, or to get ideas for a special Christmas outfit, while helping such Wicklow Hospice Foundation”.

In September 2019, the Wicklow Hospice is due to open its doors, making it the first hospice in County Wicklow.  There will be 15 rooms for in-patients and a hub for home care county-wide, a facility brought to fruition by the people of County Wicklow.

Tickets are now on sale at the Woodenbridge Hotel at €50 each, with €10 from each ticket going to the Wicklow Hospice and all attendees will be entered into a door prize draw for some amazing prizes.  Call the hotel on 0402 35246 to secure your ticket by credit card, or to arrange collection.
