Best friend organises disco to support friend through cancer treatment
On the 27 October 2017 Sophie organised an 80’s and 90’s disco to raise money for the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Her best friend Jo was diagnosed with breast cancer on the 11 May at the young age of 37 years and with two young children, both under the age of 5 years, Sophie wanted to organise a fun evening for her friend and raise money for a cause which was so relevant to the friends and family affected by Jo’s diagnosis. Living at Ashbourne Golf Club, with her husband who is the food and beverage manager, it seemed the obvious venue to Sophie for the fundraising event. Over 180 guests brought tickets to attend and were treated to a disco, food and drink and an amazing raffle which was heavily supported by local businesses and over £2,800 was raised on the night for the Pink Ribbon Foundation! Jo chose the playlist and dressed up as a Ghostbuster and the evening gave her a real boost and the strength to continue with her treatment and fight the disease. We thank everyone who attended the party and supported the raffle and we wish Jo all the best for the future.
