And there's a particular lot that may be of interest to sailors!
Auction Lot 2
Three day charter, for up to 11 people, on board the luxury 86ft motor yacht ‘Lady Tatiana of London’ to be taken between 1st October 2014 to 31st May 2015 (including Christmas, Valentines and Easter).
Lady Tatiana is a luxury motor yacht managed by White Star Charter and based in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Lady Tatiana provides five permanent guest cabins, all with en-suite bathrooms that accommodate up to 11 guests sleeping on board. The yacht is a charter yacht with four professional crew.
The Peggy Mangan Foundation was set up in 2013 by Louise & Orla Mangan when their mother Peggy and her Dog Casper went for a walk and never came home. After five days of searching they were found and Peggy had passed away and Casper who never left her side passed away a couple of hours later. Peggy couldn’t find her way home as she suffered from Alzheimer’s.
The Peggy Ball which is sponsored by White Star Charters, The K-Club, Goldstar Chaueffers, Plantronics, NextGen and many more is designed to help raise both money and awareness for the foundation.
The money raised will go directly towards the production of a mobile outreach unit – or ‘dementia bus’ which will be ran by members of Alzheimer’s Ireland. This will provide an information and support service to people with dementia and their families in their local communities. Our aim is to make sure no-one faces Dementia alone.
One area that the Peggy Mangan Foundation wants to do more research into is around the availability and success of tracking devices for elderly or vulnerable persons Patients who have dementia suffer extreme memory deficiencies, which ultimately results in them wandering and becoming lost.
The way you can help raise their goals and help fight Alzheimer’s is to get a table to the Peggy Ball, donate a prize or even sponsor the event itself. Become active in the auction on the evening which includes a charter on a stunning luxury super yacht for up to 11 people worth northwards of €25,000, playing a round of golf with four friends at the fabulous K Club or getting chauffeured around Dublin for a day in a fantastic S-Series Mercedes.
