Guineys help Dochas get into swing for major Limerick fundraiser

Guineys is teaming up with Dochas for the JP McManus Pro-Am pre-qualifier

Dóchas, the Mid-West Autism  support group has teamed up with Limerick store Guiney’s who will be their partner sponsor for an upcoming charity event.

The Dóchas Golf Classic tees off on April 26 and 27 at Ballyneety Golf Club and is a pre-qualifier event for the JP McManus 2020 Pro-Am.

This follows on from a highly successful Autism Awareness Day on April 2, when Guiney’s hosted the Limerick 95 FMs afternoon show from their store and donated 10% of their Super Tuesday sales to the autism support organisation.

Deirdre Power, centre manager of Dóchas said, “It is fantastic to have Guiney’s come on board as our flagship sponsor for our Golf Classic. Guiney’s ongoing support has been hugely beneficial for our charity and our members in driving awareness of autism in the Mid-West Region.”

The goal of the golf classic is to raise funds for the completion of the Dóchas Mid-West Autism Centre on Parnell Street, significantly increasing the number of children and young adults who can access services at the centre.
