Bands sign up for local benefit
SEVERAL local bands will perform at a benefit night for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland at the Arklow Bay Hotel this Friday, August 10.
Gravity, Black Cherry and Those Lazy Babies will all take to the stage from 8 p.m. to raise funds that will help to provide for local services and supports for people living with Dementia, their families and carers in County Wicklow including day centres, social clubs, support groups and information events.
It will also be a family affair as three brothers from Arklow perform with their three bands. Shane Lawlor will play with Black Cherry, Darren Lawlor with Those Lazy Babies and Brian Lawlor as part of Gravity.
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland’s Wicklow Services thanked the bands for hosting the benefit night. Thanks were also extended to all of the volunteers who have given up their time to help to prepare for the event and for their ongoing support.
Tickets cost €10 and double as a raffle ticket with great prizes up for grabs on the night.
Some tickets for the night are still available by calling Carol O’Connell on 086 3951747.
