A Night for Aware will take place on Friday 6 April at Dublin’s legendary Olympia Theatre. In aid of mental health charity Aware, and supported by Cadbury, the event will feature performances by In Tua Nua, Mundy, The Pale, Cry Monster Cry, Barq, Jem Mitchell, Trouble Pilgrims and The Skatuesques.
The organisers of A Night for Aware aim to raise the profile of mental health issues in Ireland as well as raise much-needed funds.
Gerry O’Brien, head of fundraising and business development with Aware, said the charity is delighted to have been chosen as charity benefactor for this year’s ‘A Night for…’ event.
“Events like this raise vital funds that allow us to provide our support and education services completely free of charge, services that make a real difference in people’s lives,” he said. “We are very grateful to Cadbury, the concert’s organizers and the artists who are generously donating their time and talents to support Aware and significantly, bring awareness to the important topic of mental health.”
Cadbury has worked with Aware since 2016, and Eoin Kellett, managing director at Mondeléz Ireland says the company is very proud of its association. “We are delighted to be able to support this initiative,” Kellett says, “particularly this year as Cadbury goes back to its roots, focusing on generosity and real moments.
“We are hoping to be able to give back to those who need it most through our partnership with Aware and bring a smile to the faces of those attending as they enjoy a wonderful night of music, all for a great cause.”
