“The night kicked off with a Prosecco reception kindly sponsored by Naas Credit Union. The wonderful Tracy Piggott was MC for the night.”

The auction of kindly donated items such as a signed boxing glove from Bernard Dunne, signed Leinster rugby jersey, VIP day at Kildare Village, VIP day at Leopardstown from Paddy Power and a signed number cloth from Ruby Walsh from his 50th Cheltenham winner Black Hercules raised over €2000 to help the 1 in 4 children with special educational needs to reach their potential.
