the western hotel & restaurant

Proudly supporting local and National Charities

On November 21st 2019 the Western hotel held their first ever charity gala dinner in aid of Western Alzheimer’s, Galway Claddagh watch and Mental Health Ireland.

The concept for our event a three course charity dinner with drinks and music, our aim to have all the stock for the night donated from our suppliers to ensure that all money raised from the night would go directly to the charities. After meeting with our suppliers, discussing this concept with them and securing sponsorship the event started to form and come together. Our chefs came up with a fabulous menu for the night.

Rowena O Brien our duty manager came up with the concept and was the main organiser from start to finish.

“I have always said that we need to give back to the community when in a position to do so as individuals and as businesses. This is something that I have learnt over the years. The charities that were chosen were especially close to my heart and were picked due to personal reasons. I was delighted when all the staff and management gave me the encouragement and support to run this event. The local businesses also offered great support donating raffle prizes for the night and also by advertising the dinner event in their businesses.

I would like to thank iradio who gave me the opportunity to speak on air, to raise awareness about our event and to raise awareness of the help and support that these charities give. The positive exposure that the night has brought to highlight the great work that these charities do is unbelievable and invaluable.

In total we raised €3000 from the ticket sales and from the raffle. This money will be split between the charities and each will receive €1000 each
