Mount Juliet Estate and BMW Group Ireland raise over €35,000 for LauraLynn
Mount Juliet Estate has chosen LauraLynn Ireland’s Children’s Hospice as it’s charity partner. The staff at historic Estate have participated in the 100K in May challenge and In October 2022, the team at Mount Juliet Estate and the BMW Group Ireland, the Mount Juliet Estate car partner, joined forces to compete in a charity golf tournament raising an impressive €35,797 for LauraLynn.
The BMW and Mount Juliet team met at Hunter’s Yard at 8am for breakfast and driving range practice for those who needed it! Kicking off at 9.30am to a shotgun start, teams put their skills to the test on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course which was recently host to the 2022 Irish Open.
Afterwards, a delicious lunch created by Chef Andy Nolan and his team, was served in the Calmont Suite in Hunter’s Yard. Comedian Barry Murphy of Après Match fame was the guest speaker who oversaw the auction and prize-giving.
Mr. Mark Dunne the General Manager of Mount Juliet Estate said, ‘Each year, the team at Mount Juliet Estate choose a charity partner and dedicate activity throughout the year to fund raise. LauraLynn was a charity that members of team were keen to support as they do incredible work providing a much-needed service for children and families who require specialist care. We were delighted to be able to partner with the BMW Group in this fund-raiser, which was a great success, raising vital funds for LauraLynn.”
