Annual Gerard & Margaret Slowey Memorial BBQ

Hi All
As many of you in the locality of Ardara, Co.Donegal will know - each year we run a charity BBQ in the Corner House bar to raise funds for key charities close to our heart.
Our father, Gerard, started running the event after our mother Margaret passed away from Cancer in 2009. Mum was lucky to have availed of the wonderful services of Inis Aoibhinn while receiving treatment in Galway. Inis Aoibhinn is run by the Cancer Care West charity and so remains as our anchor charity to this day.
Cancer Care West now also have a facility based in Letterkenny that provides cancer support services to the people of Donegal.
You can read all about the great work they do here:

In 2016, Dad passed away suddenly and while this was a shock to us all we wanted to make sure the legacy of the BBQ lived on. We have had some great days out the back of the Corner House – rain, hail, snow, and sun and are proud that we have supported some fantastic local causes over the years, all in the memory of our wonderful parents.
This year, we are back with a bang after a 2-year hiatus thanks to Covid. We are so looking forward to re-generating the BBQ and have some great musical entertainment lined up for the evening. This year, all proceeds will be split between Cancer Care West, the Woodhill Resource centre, and a number of other local causes.
Like everything with Covid, we have found some new hybrid ways of working and know that not everyone who would like to contribute will be able to be there in-person on the day. With that in mind, we have set up this Go Fund Me if you would like to donate but can’t make it on the day (you are going to miss a great day!! )
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Sunday 21st August, from 5pm in the Corner House Ardara!
