It might only be the start of the week, but that doesn’t mean you’re not already dreaming of heading out with friends. Dublin is buzzing with different events at any given moment.
There’s a number of things happening in the city this week, especially these two amazing events for even better causes.
Laugh for Mick – Laughter Lounge
A fundraising event will be held at the Laughter Lounge on Eden Quay tonight.
The comedy night is being held in aid of the Michael Mullan Cancer Fund. Michael, also known as Mick, is a 26 year old who is battling cancer for the third time. The funds raised from the comedy gig will go towards helping Mick remain in the United States to receive life-saving treatment not currently available to him at home in Ireland.
Tickets for the event are €25, and include the gig itself as well as a free drink and a DJ playing tunes late into the night.
District Magazine fundraiser for Pieta House
District Magazine, a quarterly creative magazine, are holding a fundraiser for Pieta House tonight.
The gig in Hangar will see a whole load of Dublin’s rising hip hop and urban acts come together to raise money for the suicide prevention charity. Acts like FYNCH, MathMan and Bobby Basil – as well as multiple other artists – will all take to the stage, with FYNCH shaving his head live on stage in an effort to raise even more money.
District are offering two price levels of tickets for people to pay whatever they can afford to help fundraise for Pieta. Tickets are available for both €5 and €10. All money from ticket sales will go to Pieta House, with District aiming to raise over €2,000 from the event. Tickets are on sale now on Eventbrite.ie.
