Radio NOVA and MCD present a fantastic night of fun, laughs and music in support of Pieta House.
The event takes place at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on November 16th, featuring an exciting line-up of Irish musical talent.
Pieta House provides an immeasurable amount of support to communities throughout Ireland.
Its founder Joan Freeman, opened the centre for the prevention of self-harm and suicide, in Lucan in January 2006. Since then, they have opened six centres of excellence in Ballyfermot, Mungret, Roscrea, Tuam, Bishopstown, Castleisland and have an outreach centre in Finglas.
In 2013, nearly 4,000 people came to Pieta House for help and those numbers are rising all the time. 90% of the centre’s income comes from fundraising events and we need you help supporting this great event at the Olympia Theatre.
Pieta House are really spoiling you with this line-up, they’re putting on a plethora of Irish artists to perform on the night.
