‘A fantastic day is planned and our ladies get to continue the evening in style at the infamous after party with the very entertaining Sean Crowley where ladies will be welcomed with complimentary Whitely Neill Gin Cocktails to keep them in the party mood. All in all a great day out is guaranteed as always, so don’t miss it.’
‘We have always supported a local cause with our events here in Connect and proud to say we have raised lots for many charities over the years, however we have now choose to support local schools going forward with our events for a term to enable us to give something back to that area of our community, so this year’s lunch will support Blenerville Primary School, it’s one of the many wonderful schools in the county and we hope you will join us and support them too, if it’s not your school don’t worry we will get to support your school very soon’.
