Christine Kearney’s Halloween Raffle for Breast Cancer services in St. Vincent’s
For many, many years, Christine Kearney has been an extremely prolific fundraiser for Breast Cancer in St. Vincent’s. The 2017 Halloween Raffle raised €2,375.00 and this means that to date, she has contributed over €34,000 to this vital work.
Christine and her friends Catherine and Katie had 45 wonderfully presented prizes, which made a great display in the hospital.
On the day of the raffle, the three of them were wonderfully decorated and created a terrific atmosphere. The photographs below say it all.
We are grateful to all who made this happen by donating prizes and selling tickets. We want to particularly thank the staff of the main reception in St. Vincent’s who contributed enormously to the sales beforehand.
A particularly big Thank You to Christine.

Kevin McCormack’s 60th Birthday fundraising for the Liver Unit:
On the recent occasion of his 60th birthday, Kevin McCormack, from County Laois and his family had a novel and generous plan to raise money for the Liver Unit in St. Vincent’s. Guests at the birthday were requested not to bring gifts but to donate whatever they wanted in a collection bucket on the night.
Kevin also approached many businesses for additional support. Many other individuals, aware of the fundraising, also contributed.
A total of €3,735 was raised from all these efforts and Kevin & Una and their family came to St Vincent’s to present the proceeds.
The list of donors is too long to acknowledge individually, but special thanks are due to Portarlington Credit Union and AIB Bank, Portlaoise.
St Vincent's Foundation is very grateful for the support of our Business partners
