If you like your martinis shaken not stirred, then you may be interested in the Gala Dinner and Casino Night being held by UNICEF Ireland this month.
Guest of honor at the event is former James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore, who is one of the top celebrity advocates for UNICEF. Guests will enjoy a four course evening meal with wine, followed by an address by the 81-year-old. Moore will then commence the evening’s entertainment and guests will be given complimentary casino chips when they join him in the casino. All betting is just for fun – but there will be some great prizes at the end of the evening.
“I have had the rare privilege of seeing firsthand UNICEF’s work with children around the world,” wrote Moore on the UNICEF website. "I have met countless children who are benefiting, whose lives have been saved by UNICEF programs. Many are living in appalling poverty, without the day-to-day essentials we take for granted. Others are bravely struggling to survive in situations of conflict.
“The legacies left by UNICEF supporters enable us to be there for future generations… and continue to save and uplift the lives of our world’s most precious citizens in years to come.”
The event will take place at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on January 16. More information and tickets can be found here.
