FORMER Irish and Munster rugby great Anthony Foley has appealed to the public to support the Butterfly Ball at the Strand Hotel, Ennis Road, Limerick on Saturday October 5.

“The number of people who are being diagnosed in this region is increasing and continuing to increase. In the current environment we need your support more than ever to help us ensure the continuing management of our patients with cancer,” said Mr Foley, who is now on the board of the Mid-Western Cancer Foundation.

He was speaking at the launch of the Ball in the Strand Hotel, Limerick.

The aim of the Foundation is to complement and cooperate with the HSE to assist the regional Cancer Services in areas such as purchasing of equipment, funding research, and continuing education that is necessary to support our designated National Cancer Centre.

Tickets are €90 per person which includes a champagne reception, four course meal, complimentary professional photography, gift bags and much more. Call 061-210979, email info@mwcf.ie or log on to Mid Western Cancer Foundation.
