Kerry man John Garvey and his family have raised a fantastic €126,726 for Cork University Hospital over the past 12 years, in gratitude to the hospital for the treatment of a family member.
This week we were delighted to welcome John and his daughter Claire to CUH where they presented his latest donation of €10,628 to Damian McGovern, Business Manager at CUH and Bernie O’Halloran, CUH Charity. This recent contribution will be divided among the Cancer, Neurology, and Cystic Fibrosis Services at the hospital and used to enhance patient care by allowing for upgrades to ward facilities across these Units.
For over a decade, Mr. Garvey and his family have organised and hosted an annual benefit dance in aid of CUH. Tickets for the event were sold all over Kerry, including Listowel, Abbeyfeale, Kenmare, Waterville, Cahirciveen, Milltown, Glenbeigh, Castleisland and Killorglin. The dance took place recently at the Ring of Kerry Hotel in Cahersiveen, on Nollaig na mBan on the 6th January, with music and entertainment by Noreen Ash. Thank you to John, his family and all those who supported this wonderful event!
