Event description

Description

On Saturday, May 26th, Mid West Simon will host a Gala Charity Ball at the Raddison Hotel, Limerick, with all money raised going towards homeless services. We would greatly appreciate your support by joining us at this event.


Guests are invited to a champagne reception at 7pm before moving to the main function room for an exquisite four course meal and wine. There will be lively entertainment from the band, ‘The News’ and a Dj seeing guests into the early hours. A raffle on the night will include fantastic prizes, including VIP tickets to Hermitage Green at King John’s Castle as well as much more. Guests can also avail of discounted room rates if required.



If your business is interested in becoming a sponsor of the night, We have 8 sponsohip places available. We are asking each sponsor for a donation of €600 to cover costs of the ball and ensure the most money possible goes directly to our services. Sponsors will receive recognition at the dinner and logo’s will be featured on a hanging banner, in the program and on Mid West Simon’s website.



We depend heavily on the success of these fundraising events through-out the year to provide support to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.



The following services will be supported by this event:

The Family Hub. Mid West Simon Community currently provide accommodation for 10 homeless families in our family hub in Limerick City. Families have come to the hub from hotels and B&B accommodation where they had no access to cooking and laundry facilities. The family hub model allows families to regain some independence by providing these facilities in addition to key working and resettlement support.

All of the families have predominantly been accessing homeless services for over a year and have been through very traumatic experiences. Mid West Simon provide a number of activities in house for parents and children such as cooking classes and arts and crafts. In December a group of Munster’s Greencore Academy Players stopped by to meet and play with the kids, which they were thrilled with.

Since the hub has opened in October 2017, 7 families have moved on to secure rented accommodation and continue to work closely with Mid West Simon staff.



Drop in Services. This is a service that provides people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or couch surfing with a safe space to spend time off the streets and where people are given a listening ear. Most importantly they are supported to access services, including and beyond their housing needs, such as mental health services, addiction support, education and training.



Women’s Group. Supporting women who have experienced homelessness. The group meets on a weekly basis to participate in health, well being and personal development sessions. This enables the women to maintain their mental and physical well being and give them a space to discuss issues in their lives.
