Cork Rose Centre takes 2 new Charity Partners for the 2013 Cork Rose Selection.

The Cork Rose Centre is delighted to have St Joseph’s Foundation, Charleville and COPE as the charity partners of this year’s selection. Those attending the selection on the 21st and 22nd of June will have an opportunity to support a raffle on both nights with all proceeds going directly to these two very worthy charities. Meanwhile, some Rose applicants came together last weekend to organise a fundraiser in Charleville where €1024 was raised in total for the two charities. “We are delighted to be able support such worthy causes as part of the Cork Rose Selection” said Denis Griffin Coordinator of the Cork Rose Centre. There is still time to enter and help support such great charities while having lots of fun but hurry as closing date is fast approaching. Call/text 0871474100 or email for more info.
