Southern Area Hospice Services are delighted to announce that tickets for their upcoming fundraising event, ‘Strictly Goes Country’ are now on sale – get yours now before they’re all gone.
The much anticipated ‘Strictly Goes Country’ will take place on Saturday 27th June in Armagh City Hotel, supported by ‘Get Fit Come Dancing’, Media Partners, Irish TV and Armagh City Hotel.
Ten couples have been training hard since April in preparation for the big night. They will be jiving, line-dancing and doing the huckle-buck all to the beat of Country Music in a bid to impress the audience and the judging panel, who will be placing their votes to determine who the winning couple will be. Following the results, the audience will be able to dance the night away themselves with music provided by a country DJ. Promises to be a great night!
The star-studded judging panel for the event includes Country Music Star Susan McCann and Frank Mitchell of U105 who are both long serving patrons of Southern Area Hospice Services, along with two expert dance instructors, Niall Doorhy and Turlough O’Neill.
The couples who will be taking to the stage are:
Couple 1: Olivia Hamill (Portadown) & Andy Jardine (Aughnacloy)
Couple 2: Anthony Murchan (Mullaghabawn) & Stacey Burke (Letterkenny)
Couple 3: Andrew Meakin (Keady) & Partner
Couple 4: Peter McCabe (Omeath) & Geraldine Boylan (Keady)
Couple 5: David Scott (Richhill) & Margaret McQuaide (Loughgilly)
Couple 6: Padraig McAteer (Newry) & Caoimhe Fergus (Killeavey)
Couple 7: Martin Larkin (Killeavey) & Suzanne Kelly (Dromore)
Couple 8: Adam McNeilly (Cabra) & Julie Redmond (Dromore)
Couple 9: Céallach Grant (Newry) & Cathal Trainor (Newry)
Couple 10: Jason Magowan (Dungannon) & Suzanne Rooney (Grinan)
All the money raised at ‘Strictly Goes Country’ will help Southern Area Hospice Services to continue their work, providing care and support to people in the Southern Health Trust area who are living with Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease. To maintain the level of care currently available to local people, Southern Area Hospice Services has to raise £2.38 million in 2015 alone. They rely heavily on the support of the local community to help them reach this target.
Anne Mac Oscar, Regional Marketing Officer for Southern Area Hospice in the Armagh and Dungannon area encouraged people to come along and support the dancers saying: “The couples have been training so hard for the show since April this year. We have been blown away by their dedication and commitment to both their training and their fundraising. We hope that as many people as possible will come along and support them as they help to raise vital funds for the Hospice.”
Tickets for ‘Strictly Goes Country’ (£12 each) are on sale now from Armagh City Hotel reception, Southern Area Hospice reception, from the participating dancers or by ringing Anne Mac Oscar on 028 30251333. They can also be purchased online at www.eventbrite.co.uk.
