Maria and the Pink Ladies - November 2017

16 November 2017

Thursday 19th October saw the 10th anniversary of Timeless Fashions at Punta Marina Commercial Centre. To celebrate, the ladies put on two fashion shows throughout the day to show off their new autumn collection and raise money, through a raffle, for Maria and the Pink Ladies and Panthers.

Timeless Fashions would like to thank all of the lovely models who did a great job showing off the new range; to Simon Morton and Tony Horrocks of Sunshine FM; and Dan Davy, Stevie Spit and Cindy Fitzpatrick for entertaining the crowds throughout the day. €720 was raised and donated to the charity, well done!

Sunday the 22nd of October was the fifth balloon release to mark breast cancer awareness month. An amazing €3,353.78 was raised on the day! This year was the fourth of five balloon races, kindly hosted by Zenia Boulevard, huge supporters of the AECC.

midday and carried on through to 6.30pm when the balloons were released to a rendition of Time to Say Goodbye, sang by Stevie Spit, Kylie Burgazzi, Verity Jo Hall and Maria O'Hara. The release of balloons is the biggest attraction of the day as it is highly emotional for many people - the stage area and upstairs galleries were just brimming with spectators.

The flowing crowds were entertained throughout the day by Cindy Fitzpatrick, Nikki G, Lady Jazz, Stuart Sinclair, Melissa Fanning, Chloe Leigh, Verity Jo Hall, Roxy Housewine, Rod Stewart (David John Williams), Molly Poole, Danzalusion, Paul Christie, Keith Dee, Rebecca Holt, Totally Dance School, Maria O'Hara, Kylie and Stevie.

Stevie Spit presented the show and the whole day was supported by Simon Morton and Sunshine FM. Each entertainer happily gives up their time to perform to the crowds, free of charge, something the charity is always extremely grateful for. All the money raised on the day was from people buying a helium-filled pink balloon and attaching a card to it with a message to a loved one who may have lost their battle to cancer. The message which is found the furthest away will receive a prize of €100 plus €20 goes to the person who sends in the message. Maria would like to thank everyone involved: from the artists to all her volunteers and every person who made a donation, no matter the size.

Santa suits at the ready! Sunday 3rd of December is our annual 5km Santa Walk at Zenia Boulevard. Registration opens at 11am, €5 per walker and, to get everyone in the Christmas spirit, will be Spangles singing Christmas carols.
