Offaly brain injury charity hosting Valentine's black tie ball

The Midlands branch of Acquired Brain Injury Ireland are putting the final touches to their glamorous black tie ball, which has been organised to coincide with Valentine's celebrations.

The ball will take place on Saturday, February 10 at the Tullamore Court Hotel with Aprés Match star, actor and comedian Gary Cooke on the mic as MC. John Colleary from the Savage Eye will also be on hand to help with the hosting.

Acquired Brain Injury Ireland (ABI Ireland) is Ireland's leading provider of community based neuro-rehabilitation services for people who have acquired a brain injury in Ireland.

Founded in 2000 as the Peter Bradley foundation, ABI Ireland enables people between the ages of 18 and 65 with an acquired brain injury to live an independent life by providing them with a supportive living environment. 

The Midlands branch of ABI supports people in a transitional living capacity in Mountbolus, Co. Offaly, as well as supporting over 150 people currently in the midlands region.

The evening on February 10 will commence with a drink reception at 7.15pm, while live music will be provided by The Secrets before a live DJ takes the crowd into the small hours. 

The night is a great chance for people to get dressed up, mingle with friends, celebrate Valentine's and help a very hard-working and worthy charity in their locality. 

Tickets, priced at €60, are available from Martin Nunan on 087-9305400, Tara Sweeney on 086-1709640, Acquired Brain Injury Mountbolus on 057-9354565, or from Guy Clothing in Tullamore or The Wooden Hanger, Tullamore.
