Dalata Hotel Group Fundraiser for Charity Partner Crumlin Children’s Hospital
Dalata Hotel Group chose Crumlin Children’s Hospital as their charity partner for 2016, raising over €250k. Due to this amazing success, Dalata Hotel group are remaining a partner again for 2017.
Throughout the year, 28 hotels across Ireland from the Dalata Hotel Group will raise funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital, with a target of €5,000 per hotel. These events will be run by employees and will engage with all members of staff and customers. Dalata Hotel Group has pledged to match the first €60,000 raised by staff so all donations from friends, family, colleagues, suppliers and customers are much appreciated.
A program of events has been arranged over the year to assist in reaching the Dalata Hotel Group Fundraiser target including €600 raised with raffles for Munster rugby tickets and nights away.
The hotel also held a complimentary coffee morning with all donations going to Crumlin. All attendees received a complimentary guest pass to the Maldron Leisure centre and names were put into a raffle for a night away in the Clayton Hotel Galway and also for a free 3 months membership to Club Vitae Leisure centre. Last year this event raised almost €1,000.
The Bike Shop in O’Connell Ave has sponsored a bike for The Maldron Hotel to raffle to also assist in raising funds. The owner, Joe O Carroll was delighted to have the opportunity to assist the hotel for such a worthy cause and the bike will be raffled at the hotel over the coming weeks with all proceeds going to Crumlin.
Roger Cusack, Maldron Hotel Limerick Crumlin ambassador spoke about his role saying “Everyone has a family member that knows of a small child who has fallen ill. I personally have seen the work carried out by Crumlin Hospital staff and I was honoured to get involved. We appreciate every cent that we get in donations and will work vigorously to reach our goal.”
Future events include five members of The Maldron team participating in the Cork Relay Marathon and two members of Club Vitae will also be travelling to New York later in the year from the New York Marathon.
