Well known faces from the Irish modelling business turned heads at The June Ball in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) over the weekend.
The glitzy bash took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dublin and was a resounding success, raising more than €60,000 on the night.
Guests were welcomed with a string quartet and Tia Maria espresso martini drinks reception in a teddy bear forest, which was followed by a wonderful three-course meal.
An impressive raffle and silent auction hosted by Newstalk 106’s Jonathan Healy had guests’ pulses racing, but this in turn gave them plenty of energy for the after-dinner entertainment with band group Created By Comets and DJs Dave Treacy and Roman Cleiss.
For those in a more competitive mood, fun and frolics abounded with giant board games and table tennis. There were some well-known faces amongst the 700 guests, including reigning Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh.
And she wasn’t the only top Irish model in attendance: Kerri Nicole Blanc, Jayne Higgins, Faith Barnett, Claire Tracey, as well as Ursula Kelly and Natalia Piechaczek, also frocked up for the worthwhile cause.
The IMNDA is the primary support organisation for people living with MND, their family and carers. Key services include home visiting by an MND dedicated nurse, financial assistance towards home care, funding towards research and the provision of specialist medical equipment on loan to clients. Funds raised on the night will be divided between these crucial services that the charity provides.
