The Westin hotel Dublin hosted a gala ball, organised by the hotel team, in an effort to raise funds and drive awareness for the Barretstown Gang charity. Hosted by Matt Cooper the event raised much needed funds for the children’s charity.

Barretstown was founded by Hollywood actor Paul Newman in 1994 and modelled on his renowned Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut, USA. It serves children (and their families) affected by serious illnesses – primarily cancer and serious blood diseases – from Ireland, Britain and throughout Europe.
