Pocket Aces at the Pavilion Leopardstown

We would like to invite you to the third installment of our charity event, Pocket Aces at the Pavilion in aid of CanTeen Ireland.

When: Saturday, April 22 at 8 PM - 3 AM
Where: The Pavilion, Lepardstown Racecourse, Dublin 18.

Book your tickets here.

The last few years have been tough on many of us but no more than on the Walsh and O’Gorman families. This event is our way of showing Stephen, Conor and their families how important they are to us.

The support over the last 2 year’s has really blown us all away and it’s that support that really makes the difference to Canteen Ireland with the money raised covering a third of their budget each year.


This year we’re bringing it back to where it all began, The Pavilion in Leopardstown. Over the last 2 events we have managed to raise over €70,000 and a goal for us this year is to reach €120,000. None of this is possible without you so we urge you and your family and friends to get involved in any way you can, whether that be buying a ticket, donating, sponsoring, giving a prize or even setting up a fundraising page, please do it, as all support is greatly appreciated.

20:00 – 21:00 – Drinks Reception
21:00 – 23:00 – Live Casino
23:00 – 01:00 – Live Band
01:00 – 03:00 – Special Guest DJ
And a few surprises throughout the night

Dress code: Black-tie/Cocktail dresses
