The ladies who lunch proved that they’ve still got it at the CRY Pure Style fashion lunch at the Shelbourne Hotel recently. The third annual event was presented by Karen Koster and exclusively previewed the Spring/Summer 2011 collections from four Irish boutiques: Fran & Jane, Divine, Compagnie L and Anastasia.

The event was held to raise funds for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) and will be used by them to support families who have lost a relative to sudden cardiac death (SCD), to raise awareness of the conditions that cause SCD, and to fund the activities of the Centre for Cardiac Risk in Younger Persons (CRYP) in Tallaght Hospital.

This Centre provides comprehensive cardiac evaluation of those who may be at risk from SCD either because of family history or worrying symptoms. The service is available to anyone in the country and is actually free to patients.
