Volunteering - your time is a gift

Our Cork Simon Annual Fundraising Ball is organised by a voluntary committee of Cork's key business leaders. Year after year they gift their skills, experience and network of contacts to ensure our Fundraising Ball is an outstanding success and the evening raises funds that are vital to Cork Simon Community.

The voluntary committee would be delighted to hear from you to talk to you about how you can support our next Annual Fundraising Ball in 2025.
