Hey Guys and Dolls,
I came across an event recently that is close to my heart so I had to tell you guys about it. Pieta House is a non profit organisation providing a specialised treatment programme for people who have suicidal ideation and those who engage in self harm.
Pieta House opened its doors a decade ago in Lucan Co.Dublin. It has helped over 20,000 people over the years and they do such an amazing job. Since opening they have launched another 3 centres in Dublin and 5 throughout the rest of the country. The work they do is phenomenal and is free of charge so they rely alot on support and volunteers. That's where you guys come in.
On Friday 31st of March, Pieta House is holding their Masked Til Midnight ball. With entertainment on the night from the Irish Rat Pack and a DJ, it's sure to be an amazing night. You will receive a welcome drink on arrival and there will be yummy street food served throughout the night. They also hold the annual Darkness into Light Run/Walk on Saturday 6th of May. It's actually celebrating it's nineth year this year. This event takes place in the small hours of the morning and is held in over 100 venues nationally and internationally. I haven't taken part yet but I definitely want to get involved this year. I had pretty bad mental health a few years back and work like this really helped me overcome it plus I know alot of people in my life who were affected by suicide.
The Pieta House Masked Til Midnight Masquerade Ball is being held in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham and the tickets cost €75. Tickets for the night can be bought here. It is sure to be a good night with all proceeds going to the wonderful Pieta House. They would love your support on the night. I'm hopefully going along on the night so I hope to see some of you there.
