THE Vera District Lions and Community Care Events are set to host the very first LionAid – party in the park this Sunday.
With the support of Vera Town Hall, LionAid will hold the fun-filled fundraising event on Sunday at El Palmeral Park with all proceeds for the Vera & District Lions Club.
Among other appeals, part of the money raised on the day will go towards local builder/ plasterer Paul Morrison’s fundraising appeal ahead of his new treatment for Multiple Sclerosis.
The 46-year-old was diagnosed with MS last year and is set to undergo a new form of treatment in Russia in August, but needs to raise €40,000 before heading to Moscow to cover the costs.
Doors for the party open at 11.30am, with live acts, including a great selection of local bands, set to start from 12 noon going on all through the day until midnight.
A large main stage will play host to a number of bands and dance acts throughout the day, while there will also be an acoustic stage in the Irish, country and folk themed tavern.
Among other events throughout the day, there will be a huge tombola, which has some amazing prizes, alongside a large craft fayre with wonderful local arts and crafts.
Two bars will also be serving fair price delicious food and drink all day long while for the children, there will be a play area, clown and even a bouncy castle.
Tickets for the Party in the Park cost just €5 with children under 12 going free and are available on the day.
