Back to 1980s for school fundraiser

Bray People - - NEWS -

THERE WAS some se­ri­ous time-trav­el­ling afoot at Pow­er­scourt Ho­tel last Satur­day when the band ‘Delorean’ played at an Eight­ies prom night.

It was a fundraiser for St Mary’s and St Ger­ard’s Na­tional School, Pow­er­scourt, which needs some re­fur­bish­ment.

How­ever, the whole com­mu­nity got on board to go dancing on the ceil­ing all night long. As well as the dancing and din­ner there was a huge raf­fle to help raise funds.

The trea­surer of the par­ents com­mit­tee is still count­ing the money so they hope there was enough raised on the night to do works from up­grad­ing the heat­ing to re­fur­bish­ing bath­rooms at the pri­mary school.

Many of the 195 guests on the night dressed up ei­ther in prom dresses or suits or in full on 1980s garb. There were even a few Madon­nas, Axl Roses and other nota­bles from the decade.

The band played loads of songs from the Eight­ies in­clud­ing hits by Prince, A-ha, Queen, Du­ran Du­ran, Ja­son Dono­van and many more.

One of the at­ten­dees said it was the most en­ter­tain­ing school fundraiser she had ever been to.
