Keith Duffy gave The Shine Centre for Autism a helping hand to launch their Valentines Ball taking place on Saturday 11th of February 2012. Keith was very kindly helped by Coronation Street star Ian Puleston-Davies to publicise the event taking place at the Maryborough Hotel &Spa in Cork . Tickets for the event sponsored by Hidden Hearing are priced at €100 with all funds raised going directly to services for children with autism at the Shine Centre. Tickets are available from the Shine Centre or online at www.shineireland.com
The Shine Fundraising Ball has been held for the last five years in support of the Shine Centre for Autism. It is now established as one of the leading events of its kind in Cork and is supported by the families and friends of children with autism, the general public and the corporate and business sectors in the city. There is always a celebrity presence at the event with Miriam O’Callaghan, Mairead Farrell and cast members from Fair City appearing as special guests at the event over the years.
