The SoftCo Foundation will host its first annual Charity Day this month in aid of three very worthy causes: CMRF Crumlin, Guy’s Cancer, and Irish Injured Jockeys. The event, which will raise much-needed funds to support the vital work of these charities, will be hosted by international rugby stars and SoftCo brand ambassadors, Dan Carter and Ronan O’Gara.
The charity day will be attended by friends and supporters of the SoftCo Foundation including renowned jockeys Ruby Walsh, Johnny Murtagh, and Robbie ‘Puppy’ Power, legendary trainer Ted Walsh, PGA Tour golfers Troy Merritt and Chesson Hadley, Irish rugby legend Tony Ward, bookmaker Paddy Power, and a host of other well-known personalities from the world of sport.
“The day will be a lot of fun and is all about creating awareness and raising funds for these fantastic charities. They are all causes that are close to our hearts in SoftCo and we are delighted to support them.”
Jim Coffey, Co-Founder, SoftCo
Full details of the Charity Day will be released in the coming days.
