The Irish Grocers Benevolent Fund Annual Sports Lunch took place on Friday, 31 August at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, where a star-studded panel featuring Roy Keane, Henry Shefflin, Shane Byrne and Anna O’Flanagan discussed their careers, the sporting world and more. A full house was in attendance on the day, with MC Sile Seoige was on hand to oversee proceedings.
The event was a complete sell out, with all tables completely sold out within a week of invites going out. 470 guests attended on the day, from a range of major Irish retailers and suppliers in the industry. As a result, it was a great opportunity for networking, all while raising much-needed funds for the Irish Grocers Benevolent Fund. In total, a massive €40,000 was raised from the event this year.
