Fund-raising Album launch of Laughlin Sisters:
“Sara and Jennifer Laughlin will launch their first album on Saturday 25th August in the Highland’s Hotel, Glenties at 8.30 p.m. This album will be launched on an evening of music and dance with many surprise guests appearing on the night. There will be a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity on the night to earn yourself a run in a WRC Subaru S12B, driven by Declan Boyle (on a test day). All proceeds from the night and the album will go to the Oncology Unit in Letterkenny General Hospital. This C.D. will act as our token of appreciation and thanks to the dedicated staff there, who have dedicated themselves to the care of patients suffering along the turbulent road which cancer brings to the lives of many of us, our families and friends. Come along and enjoy a fantastic night’s entertainment while supporting a very worthy cause. You will most certainly not be disappointed and hopefully go away from the night a little more uplifted by the power of music and of course rallying. ”
