Event description

Description

It's time to celebrate all those who are friends of breastfeeding in Ireland. This event will be a wonderful gala designed not only to be a fab day for breastfeeding mums, but also to recognised the positive difference made by many this year and celebrate 10 amazing years of Friends of Breastfeeding.

In the impressive setting of the Clontarf Castle Hotel, a beautiful three course meal will be provided along with entertainment, the day will a fantastic treat and chance to treat yourself with your friends or family. All children welcome. Entertainment at the event will be provided by stand up comic, Diane O'Connor, of Breastfeeding Alfresco fame.

Sabina Higgins, who won Breastfeeding Advocate of the Year 2018, will be returning once again to the event along with other notable winners. When accepting her award last year, Ireland's first lady thrilled the audience with her speech about Ireland's breastfeeding mothers, “Women have to be empowered or the planet cannot survive socially, environmentally or economically. You are part of a great, big global movement that has to happen”.

The award catogeries cover celebrities, healthcare professionals, breastfeeding mums, breastfeeding support volunteers (such as La Leche League, Cuidiu, Friends of Breastfeeding), businesses, and journalists. They are short listed based on public nominations. Winners will not be announced until the ceremony itself at our 10 Year Anniversary Gala, so there is a lot of anticipation and suspense surrounding the awards. Previous well known winners had empowering words upon winning their own at past Friends of Breastfeeding Awards include, Samantha Mumba and Dil Wickremasinghe and we're sure 2019 will be an even greater uplifting event to mark a decade of Friends of Breastfeeding championing Irish mums.

Whether your a breastfeeding mum in need of a special day out with friends or family, a breastfeeding supporter that wants a chance to celebrate our wonderful community and have fun with your fellow volunteers or colleagues, were previously/currently involved with FOBF and wish to mark the charities anniversary, or you are shortlisted to potentially be a 2019 winner and want those most important to you to be there to cheer you on for all you've accomplised, this is the event for you.

This event is a fundraiser for Irish charity Friends of Breastfeeding on the 10 year anniversary of the charities beginings and a decade of supporting, celebrating and normalising breastfeeding in Ireland.

Arrival from 12.30, please be seated by 1pm sharp for event start at which point there will be a welcome/introduction to the gala. Food served at 1.10 pm. Infants that do not require a sit down meal can attend without charge.
