Crowleys DFK’s Virtual Race Night Fundraiser raises over €6,600 for Cork ARC

Crowleys DFK hosted a Virtual Race Night Fundraiser in aid of their Charity Partner, Cork ARC Cancer Support House on Friday 13 September. The night was a huge success and raised over €6,600 for Cork ARC.

One of the highlights of the night was a bidding war between Managing Partner, James O’Connor and Partner, Tony Cooney, in an effort to win a two night stay with dinner in The Europe Hotel. James was the lucky winner with a massive €750 raised from this alone.

Speaking about the event, Managing Partner, James O’Connor commented,

“On behalf of everyone at Crowleys DFK I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the very generous sponsorship by friends, clients and local businesses for our Virtual Race Night. We couldn’t have done it without your support. We are proud to support Cork ARC and play a part in supporting the great work that they do.”

Marketing & Communications Manager of Cork ARC, Joanne McCarthy said,

"We are so thankful to Crowleys DFK for hosting another successful fundraising event in support of Cork ARC - their continued support as Charity Partner gives us so much encouragement in our work and helps us to continue to reach out to the community to offer support and information to those affected by a cancer diagnosis in our community. Crowleys DFK have truly made room for Cork ARC and the people of Cork."

Since the beginning of 2019, Crowleys DFK have been participating in events to raise funds and awareness for Cork ARC, including the Cork City Marathon, a Sponsored Skydive and the Mini Marathon. They hope to continue to raise as much as possible for Cork ARC throughout the rest of the year.
