Milford Snow Ball 2022

The Snow Ball will take place on Saturday, February 12 in aid of Milford Care Hospice.

In aid of Milford Hospice, a black-tie dinner and dance fundraiser has been organised by Emma Culleton and fellow final year medical students at the University of Limerick currently on placement in University Hospital Limerick.

The ball will take place on Saturday, February 12 in Thomond Park with a guest feature from DJ Bongo Steve, Ireland’s top soloist DJ and percussionist from Cork.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the Milford Snow Ball 2022, Emma commented, “The past two years have been immensely challenging to our community and healthcare services,

As medical students, we have interacted with physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, and numerous other healthcare professionals across Ireland and have witnessed first-hand the many obstacles and adversity they have faced,

When the opportunity to hold a fundraising event presented itself, we felt it was very important to give back to a local charity that epitomizes quality and compassionate care.” She added.

As future doctors, they were inspired by the support, dedication, and empathy that Milford Hospice provides for patients and their loved ones, making their choice to support Milford a “natural choice for this event.”

Medicare, a family-owned provider of high-quality healthcare devices and consumables based in Limerick has generously supported the fundraiser.

“Fleming Medical along with our partner Medicare is a Limerick-based family run business operating for over 35 years supplying first aid, medical and emergency equipment to healthcare facilities, pharmacies and organisations throughout Ireland and beyond.” A representative for Medicare commented,

“We are committed to supporting local causes that contribute to the community and the Snow-ball: In Aid of Milford Hospice is something we were eager to get involved with. Milford Hospice has helped so many people and their families in times of need and Fleming Medical is proud to support them at the Snow-Ball.”

Donations to Milford Care Centre can be made online through the Milford Care Centre website.
