Crowleys DFK hosted a Virtual Race Night Fundraiser in aid of Charity Partner, Cork ARC Cancer Support House last week. The night was a huge success and raised over €6,600 for Cork ARC.

One of the highlights of the night was a bidding war between Managing Partner, James O’Connor and Partner, Tony Cooney, in an effort to win a two night stay with dinner in The Europe Hotel. James was the lucky winner with a massive €750 raised from this alone.

Speaking about the event, Managing Partner, James O’Connor commented,

“On behalf of everyone at Crowleys DFK I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the very generous sponsorship by friends, clients and local businesses for our Virtual Race Night. We couldn’t have done it without your support. We are proud to support Cork ARC and play a part in supporting the great work that they do.”

Marketing & Communications Manager of Cork ARC, Joanne McCarthy said,

“We are so thankful to Crowleys DFK for hosting another successful fundraising event in support of Cork ARC – their continued support as Charity Partner gives us so much encouragement in our work and helps us to continue to reach out to the community to offer support and information to those affected by a cancer diagnosis in our community. Crowleys DFK have truly made room for Cork ARC and the people of Cork.”

Since the beginning of 2019, we have been participating in events to raise funds and awareness for Cork ARC, including the Cork City Marathon, a Sponsored Skydive and the Mini Marathon. We hope to continue to raise as much as possible for Cork ARC throughout the rest of the year.

Crowleys DFK Charity Partner of the Year

Crowleys DFK is delighted to announce Cork ARC Cancer Support House as its inaugural Charity Partner of the Year for 2019.

Speaking about the announcement, James O’Connor, Crowleys DFK Managing Partner said,

“Crowleys DFK has a long history of successfully fundraising for and contributing to a wide variety of very worthy charities and causes over the years. The launch of our Charity of the Year Programme enables us to channel the charitable efforts of the firm and our staff to support an Irish charity each year and make a meaningful impact”.

The selection of Cork ARC Cancer Support House as the 2019 charity was as a result of a staff charity nomination process.

Over the coming year, Crowleys DFK staff in Dublin and Cork will organise, fundraise, and participate in a number of events to raise funds in aid of Cork ARC. We will also promote awareness of the range of invaluable specialist professional services and emotional support Cork ARC offers people with cancer and their families. Details of the programme events will be announced over the coming weeks and months.

Colette Nagle, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Crowleys DFK added,

“We are proud to support Cork ARC and play a part in supporting the great work that they do. We are looking forward to fundraising as much as we can for them through various events and activities. Our Charity of the Year Programme is just one way we can make a difference to the communities we work in.”

CEO of Cork ARC Cancer Support House, Aileen O’Neill said

“Cork ARC are delighted to be chosen as Crowley’s DFK charity partner. We look forward to their support for 2019, and to making a continued positive impact on the lives of all those affected by cancer in our community.’’
