Stetsons and cowboy boots were out in full force on Friday 26th July as Westmeath ‘Friends of Foróige’ hosted a very memorable Barn Dance Fundraiser! The ‘Friends’ group are comprised of former Club members, former and present Club Leaders and supporters of Foróige. The night was a tremendous success with over 100 cowboys in attendance and approx €1,500 was raised.
A BBQ (with meat kindly sponsored by local butchers) and raffle (prizes included breaks in The Hudson Bay, the Bloomfield Hotel and the Radison, Athlone). Friends of Foróige volunteers Veronica Daly, Bernie McHugh, Noreen Dunlea, Sarah Boland, Rita Egan, Gary Nugent and Fiona Boland all deserve a massive Thank You for their time and commitment to Foróige. Veronica who is a Foróige supporter and is now volunteering as a Friend of Foróige says, "It was a brilliant experience. I met some great people and enjoyed working with everyone in Friends of Foróige. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to start out in volunteering with charities."
