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.

The Shine Ball is also a cornerstone fundraising event for the organisation and has raised in excess of €180,000.00 for services and programmes at the Centre.
