Now that the dust has settled (and i’ve got my college project in) from #BigBeeryNight16, I just wanted to take the chance to thank you all for your support.
Firstly, we raised for The Irish Cancer Society a whopping €2655.47 which is more than double last years amount. It just goes to show just how generous folk are, especially for a cause that has affected so many of us.
Our good friend in the UK, Steve Bentall of Hopinions and lots of the beer scene over there, reached their target of £5000 for MacMillan Nurses
I think it’s fair to say that the highlight was the Auction, and it was lots of fun for observers watching all the bids coming in especially in the last few minutes. It was tough to manage, but we’re already looking forward to next year. The bidding was fierce, and the final tally and amounts is here and there were several hotly contested items.
Thank you to all our Donors who gave some amazing prizes, these will be beginning to wing their way to the lucky winners this week. We apologise that we couldn’t take on more lots, but next year we will make the event bigger and better, so you’ll have to wait and see what we have planned.
Thank you to all the people who took part, and those who donated even when they didn’t win in the auction. You all deserve a massive round of applause. Thank you.
