On 18th October 2014, SI North Kildare held a Gala Fundraising Dinner Dance in aid of Third Age Senior Help Line in The K Club. Our President Moya Murphy told 250 plus guests including our National President Noreen Walsh how special this function was as the CEO of Third Age is one of our own Club members Aine Brady, formerly Club President and National President. Third Age CEO Aine said in her speech that they were extremely fortunate that Senior Help Line was chosen as our Club annual charity to support in 2014. She highlighted the difference made by the Soroptimist global organisation and our Club in particular. Funds raised will enable their Volunteer Help Line service to continue to lessen loneliness, by being there, listening, caring and helping to keep older people at home where most want to stay.

This event also celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Clubs Charter and was marked by Founder President Kay Brophy cutting the cake with current and former members assembled behind her on the dance floor.
