Chamber President Paul Convery said: “We are very grateful to American Airlines for their third year of support. This Golden Ticket Prize is highly desirable and with a limited issue of 100 tickets, last year sales of Golden Tickets sold in little over two weeks and raised £10,000 for local charities.”

“American Airlines is proud to support local charities which are close to the hearts of our team members and customers” said Caitriona Toner, American Airlines Sales Manager for Ireland. “We would like to thank the event organizers, attendees and the charities themselves for their dedication and commitment to improving the lives of those in need across Ireland.”

Chosen Charities for 2018

This is the 19th annual Newry Business Christmas Charity Dinner and this year’s chosen charities are Action on Elder Abuse, Air Ambulance NI, Space NI, Community Rescue Service, MS Society, Down Right Brilliant, Rathore School, Women’s aid, Ellen’s Journey, Life & Time, PIPS Hope & Support, Daisy Hill Hospital Children’s Ward, Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and others to be confirmed.

The event also supports St Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army in Newry through the creation of a show stopping Toy Mountain.

Mr Convery explains: “Each guest who attends is asked to bring an unwrapped toy for a child in need. Volunteers from the two nominated charities ensure that all donations are delivered to children and families in need by Christmas Eve.

“Its’ truly humbling to be involved in an event like this and I’d like to thank American Airlines again for their support, the business community for their continued generosity, the volunteers with local charities, our local schools and the Chamber committees and member base for the time, money and support they give us every year to put together this huge event,” Paul adds.
