Dragons give €165,000 cheque to Dublin Simon
THE six main sponsors of the inaugural ‘Dragons at the Docks’ dragon boat racing event reconvened at Grand Canal Dock last week to present a cheque for €165,000 to Dublin Simon.
Over 700 people working in the property industry took part in the August event, raising over €220,000 in total, which has been donated to Dublin Simon and local charities in the Grand Canal Dock area.
The event was organised by: Cairn Homes, Green Reit Hammerson, Hibernia Reit, Ires Reit and Kennedy Wilson Europe Real Estate.
In supporting the Simon Capital Development Fund, the ‘Dragons at the Docks’ fundraiser will help Dublin Simon achieve a goal of 480 bed units within the next four to five years, helping up to 750 men, women and children move out of homelessness for good.
