Speaking about the event, Ryan Tubridy said, “Aware is an established and well-respected charity that has made and continues to make a real difference in the lives of thousands of people impacted by depression and related disorders. The 30th Anniversary Ball in October is a great opportunity for people to acknowledge the contribution Aware has made and to help fundraise for the important services that the organisation continues to provide. I am thrilled to be involved in what’s sure to be a great night and I hope people will join us and support this event. ”
Dominic Layden, Chief Executive Officer of Aware said; “We know that many people in Ireland have been helped by Aware’s services over the past three decades. With our focus on support, education and information, there are many ways in which Aware makes a difference to individuals, families and communities across Ireland. We hope that people will get involved and support the Aware 30th Anniversary Ball so that we can raise funds and ensure that the services Aware provides are available for as long as they are needed.”
