We are very sorry to announce that the charity auction scheduled for next Saturday (2/3/2019) is cancelled.
Unfortunately, we did not receive enough reservations to make it viable. As you can imagine a certain number of people is required to make the auction possible and despite our best attempts we fell short of this number.
We are very sorry that the notice is short but as you can imagine we were hoping for new reservations and the decision to cancel was a difficult one. We will take some time now to reflect on whether we try again later in the year to organise a new charity auction (we still have many great lots) or find a different method to raise funds for the truly excellent cause that is IOP. Perhaps you have some ideas? If so we would be delighted to hear from you.
Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience.
Sam and the IOP/Sunflower team.
To mark World Cancer Day (on 4 February 2019), and to raise funds for the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation, a Scottish/Irish Cèilidh is being organised on Saturday 2 February 2018 from 19:00 at the Centre Cultural Altrimenti (5 Avenue Marie-Therese, Luxembourg-ville).
The 2019 Dance Against Cancer Cèilidh is the third such event held in the Grand Duchy, with €2,051.60 raised in 2018 for the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation.
Following the success of previous events in 2017 and 2018, the traditional Irish band Kitchen Quartet will again provide the music, with a dance caller organising those on the dance floor who may not know the various dances. The Luxembourg Pipe Band will also perform.
A cash bar will be in operation. All money raised will be donated to the Cancer Foundation
Tickets €12 from http://urquhart.lu/relais or at the door (subject to availability)
