'Strictly for Aoife' - Saturday April 23rd 2016 (Report, Photos & link to Gallery)

Visit our Gallery of Photos here!

In Hope & Remembrance, ‘Strictly for Aoife’ saw over one thousand people in O’Reilly Hall UCD for an extraordinary fundraising event of pure positivity, on Saturday night 23rd April. Thirty-four Loreto College Foxrock staff, parents, past pupils and friends have been strictly dancing outside their comfort zones for eight weeks in preparation. The results were beyond spectacular. Our Judges, Miriam O’Callaghan, David McCullagh, Eoin McDermott and Geoff Minogue along with our voting audience and our generous sponsors determined the talented winning couples.

Best Video - Sinead Giblin & John Dawson

3rd place – Niamh Durcan & Eoin Thompson

2nd place – Ciara Breen & Karl Dorman

1st place – Leah Fanning & Karl Chapple

Overall winner – Loreto College Foxrock Community!

Mrs Prendiville, Principal, in her words of Hope & Remembrance spoke of the ‘terrible tragedy in Berkeley last summer that brought us here this evening, one that shocked us all and affected us deeply…………The events of June 2015 were much bigger than our school but they brought us into the community and they brought the community to us. Community is about people, locality, commonality, a group with shared purpose, in Irish the word Muintir also means family. We are all here tonight, as a community, to support Aoife in her recovery.

This event would not be possible without a very large number of people coming together, giving freely of their time, energy and resources to make it all happen. It has not been a burden to anyone involved, despite the long hours of practice and planning that have gone on. The sense of purpose, fun, and camaraderie has been common to all those who have been involved’.

Joanne Brock, our team leader, shared the outstanding fundraising result at the close of the evening - €65,000. Our goal has been reached and exceeded – well done to all!

Funds raised support the Aoife Beary Trust ®

Loreto College Foxrock.........Strictly for Aoife fundraiser.........O'Reilly Hall UCD.........on Saturday April 23rd.........Doors open 7pm.........Show starts 8pm

Preparations are at 'full-tilt' now. 34 dancers have been training for six weeks with just one more week to go!

And it's not only the dancers who are enormously behind this event - business sponsorship is rolling in with our Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorship funds. In addition, service suppliers: design, print, photography, hair, make-up, tanning! And of course, UCD O'Reilly Hall are supporting the ‘Strictly’ campaign, all resulting in more funds going directly to the Aoife Beary Trust.

So too is the Loreto College Foxrock community wrapping its arms around this initiative. Tickets went on sale last Tuesday April 5th at 9am …. by 3pm 750 tickets of the 900 available had been sold. There will definitely be a full house on April 23rd!
