Cork University Hospital (CUH) Charity has announced that its inaugural Gala Fundraising Ball, which is set to take place on October 9th in the Maryborough Hotel and Spa, will aim to raise vital funds for essential equipment and patient care.


Funds raised will go towards initiatives such as creating a new sensory area for children with special needs, providing sleeping facilities for parents, purchasing vital equipment to aid the diagnosis of colon cancer and equipment to aid neurosurgery.


It is hoped that the new children’s unit, neurosurgery and cancer services will all benefit as a result of the funds raised from the evening.


Miriam Forde, Fundraising Manager at CUH Charity, spoke about the upcoming ball: “We are calling on companies big and small to come behind this event and support us in our first ever Gala Fundraising Ball, which will go a long way towards providing new much-needed facilities at CUH. We are looking forward to hosting a great night at the Maryborough, with fantastic raffle prizes to be won and live entertainment by the Pat Fitz Band.”


Guests will experience the Maryborough’s unique new Orangery for a champagne reception before enjoying a four course meal in the ballroom. Raffle prizes on the night will include a family holiday to France worth over €3000 courtesy of Shandon Travel.


Tickets cost €150 or €1500 per table of ten and can be purchased online at, by emailing or by calling 021- 423 4529.
