Court Yard Hotel to Raise €10,000 for Marie Keating Foundation


The Court Yard Hotel, Leixlip is aiming to raise €10,000 for the Marie Keating Foundation through a fundraiser evening in the hotel on Thursday, August 28th.  The Moriarty Group, owners of the Court Yard Hotel, will cover the costs of the event, ensuring all proceeds go directly to the foundation.

On the evening, the event will include drinks on arrival in the River Bank Lounge followed by a sumptuous five-course meal with wine, prepared by the Court Yard’s new Euro Toque Head Chef Shay Kendrick. Guests will then make their way to the famous Piano Bar for live entertainment, after-dinner drinks and the chance to win one of a number of spot prizes up for grabs including golfing breaks, plasma TVs and vouchers.

“We are delighted with ticket sales so far for the evening, people obviously recognise the outstanding work of the Marie Keating Foundation and want to show their support”, commented organiser Lynda Roche, The Court Yard Hotel. “The evening will be a very enjoyable one, with great food from our new chef and some terrific entertainment. We hope to sell the remaining tickets for the event this week in order to meet our target of €10,000 and we encourage everyone to call the hotel, book their tickets and support this cause”

A ticket for the dinner package is €80 and there are also tickets available for the Piano Bar at €40, which includes a drinks reception in the River Bank Lounge followed by wine and canapés accompanied by Live Entertainment
