Drive Against Suicide Ball Fundraising For Limerick Organisations
The Drive Against Suicide Ball will take place on Saturday the 15th of April in the Dunraven Arms Hotel in Adare Co. limerick at 8 pm.
The Drive Against Suicide Ball is a black-tie event including a 4-course meal and a special guest speaker on the night with a fantastic prize up for grabs too. This wonderful night will also feature music from the wedding band of the year, Escapade followed by DJ.
The Drive Against Suicide Committee is made up of five hard working volunteers, Cormac Hayes, Shanagolden, Aidan O’Keeffe, Adare, Geraldine and Christy Keyes, Clarina and Jason O’Grady, Rathkeale. Their aim, through running this event, is based on raising money and also awareness for two well-known organisations in Limerick, The Marine Search and Rescue and the Limerick Suicide Watch.
The Limerick Marine Search and Rescue, last year, celebrated their 30th
year running since establishing in 1986. The organisation has since grown to a full blown headquarters at Atlas Avenue on the Dock Road housing state of the art equipment to help keep the people of Limerick safe in unpredictable waters. It also holds pontoons along the waters of Limerick equipped with boats which were established with the help of donations. As a result from these, Limerick Marine Search and Rescue are incredibly responsive in an emergency call due to their quick accessibility to the water.
Limerick Suicide Watch is a Limerick based suicide prevention group formed in 2016 that patrol between the four bridges in the Limerick City Area. The group’s main focus is to keep eyes on the river, identify and provide support to those in distress and may be contemplating suicide.The Limerick Suicide Watch patrols run on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am until 1 am and Saturday from 12 until 4 am depending on the activity at that time. During the year, Limerick Suicide Watch is also out on patrol for other key times, for example, Leaving Certificate and Junior Certificate Results, Bank Holidays, Christmas, New Year Period and other main events during the year.
The Drive Against Suicide Ball is a bid to raise money for these organisations. Tickets for the ball are on sale at the reasonable price of €50 each. Proceeds from the ball will be divided between the Limerick Suicide Watch and the Limerick Marine Search and Rescue.
