Temple Street Children's Hospital Prize Draw 201523.09.2015
There was great excitement and anticipation on Wednesday 9th September in Joe Duffy BMW Motorrad as everyone waited to see the total raised for Temple Street Children's Hospital. With our year-end target achieved three months early, Joe Duffy Group CEO Gavin Hydes presented Denise Fitzgerald, CEO of the Temple Street Foundation, with a cheque for €20,000 on the group’s behalf.
It was a fantastic occasion as RTE’s Darragh Maloney kindly hosted the presentation and announced our Temple Street Draw winners. There was a special guest appearance by our very own Shane Staunton, AKA, Uachtarán na hÉireann, Mr Michael D. Higgins and Irish heartthrob, Mr Daniel O’Donnell, who took time out of his busy Strictly Come Dancing schedule to join us.
Sincere thanks to everyone who took part in the Clontarf Half Marathon and five mile run or walk in July and sought sponsorship or sold or bought tickets for our Temple Street Draw including our valued customers. The support, effort and teamwork has been absolutely stellar. Some fantastic prizes were on offer in the raffle that included a trip to New York, All Ireland Football Final tickets, Manchester United tickets, Weekends in Monart Destination Spa, iPad, Apple Watch, iPhones and more.
Further to this draw, our very own Paul Forrester will be heading stateside next year to take on Route 66 in aid of Temple Street. We wish Paul the very best of luck and there is no doubt we will get another overwhelming amount of support from both our staff and generous customers.
We are thoroughly excited to continue and build our relationship with Temple Street long into the future and look forward to many more great days like this.
