James Sexton of HIYA Entertainment will step into the DJ booth to provide entertainment for the evening celebrating a decade which saw synth pop, soft rock matched with big hair and iconic clothing styles.

The charity has called on people to “Get your dancing shoes on & rock on down to Bobby Byrne’s” on the evening asking people to get a group together “for what will be a super night of entertainment” on October 12.

Cliona’s have been helping families in Limerick, in the Mid-West and Limerick, since 2008. To date the foundation has provided financial assistance to 207 families in the region. The relentless increase in inflation shows, now, yet again, families with sick children are disproportionately affected by situations out of their control, this time it is rapidly increasing living costs.

These are parents who are in a living nightmare and the last thing they should have to worry about is bills. Many parents must give up their jobs to care for their sick child, leaving them struggling to cope. Studies have highlighted that a family will need between
€10,000 and €15,000 a year to cover various bills while their child is ill.

DJ James Sexton said in a Facebook post, “I’m happy to DJ at this event for Cliona’s Foundation Come along if you want to dance to the best decade of music ever, The 80’s. Should be a great night and all money raised goes to this wonderful Charity.”

Tickets are priced at €12.00 for adults and €10.00 for students, with the entire ticket fee acting as a direct donation towards Cliona’s Foundation.

To further boost fundraising efforts, a raffle will be held during the event, with all proceeds earmarked for the foundation.

Donation buckets will also be available for those eager to contribute.

Tickets can be purchased through Event Master here.
