Organising an outdoor event in Ireland, even in the height of summer, is risky but the good people of Drogheda and District Chamber of Commerce are risk takers.
Throwing caution to the wind, they have announced that – rain or shine - their annual Summer Social BBQ will take place next Friday, 11th August, from 6pm in the newly refurbished “The Hops” bar at the d Hotel.
This year, they have selected the local St. John Ambulance unit as their nominated charity.
“The BBQ is an opportunity to socialise with other local businesses, relax and to start the weekend early. The event is open to all, not just to Chamber members,” said Irene McKeown at the Chamber, adding “everyone knows the great work the St. John Ambulance volunteers undertake locally and we’re delighted to support them.”
So, bring a friend or colleague for an enjoyable evening on the Boyneside while supporting a very worthy cause. The evening will kick off with a drinks reception for guests, followed by a BBQ and there’s an opportunity to win dinner for four in the d Hotel’s new Il Ponte Restaurant.
Tickets (Members €20, Non-Members €25) are available from http://droghedachambersummersocial.eventbrite.ie or by contacting Sandra in the Chamber office at 041 983 3544.
