Tickets are Limited

Tickets are limited – very limited in fact as only a mere handful remain. They were priced at €50 each and went like the proverbial hot cakes.

The ticket covers the show, a three course meal and a glass of wine with live music.

If you don’t manage to get a ticket, you can still donate to the event and ultimately to the Palliative Care Unit cause. On that, you’re invited to call Mary on 087 20 64 119.

The members of the Palliative Care Unit in Tralee are, probably, the recipients of more praise and thanks from families and relatives of people who spend their final days in their care.
