The fourth annual Dublin 15 ladies luncheon was hosted at the Castleknock Hotel and Country Club on Friday last. The event was very well supported by local businesses; the champagne reception was sponsored by Anglers Rest and the wines were courtesy of Castello Bruno.
Over 180 guests enjoyed a fashion show featuring exclusive designs by Cyril and Marot Cullen, Claire Garvey and Jennifer Rothwell showcased by the models of Compton Model Agency and presented by Una Gibney.
Guest speaker on the day was Kathryn Byrne of Image Matters and Theresa Rocca and Frank McNamara made a formidable duo as they raised lots of money (€15k) with the auction and raffle.
Overall the day raised over €15,000 for local charities and schools within the D15 area, with much fun had by all. It wasn’t over then though as most continue on to the after party at Brassiere 15.
