Car show drove ahead for Rainbow Club

Wednesday, 10th April, 2019 4:49pm

Car enthusiasts were in heaven this week when 160 classic and vintage cars, Harleys and Goldwings rolled into town.

More than 2,000 people attended the Cork Car Show which was held to help raise money for the Rainbow Club. More than €7,500 was raised for the centre that helps children with autism.

Also at the event at the Cork International Hotel were the Cut Throat Barbers and Tom Winters Barbers who set up a pop-up barber show and donated all proceeds raised on hair cuts to the Rainbow Club.

The Cork International Hotel recently announced that it has partnered with the Rainbow Club Cork Centre for Autism as its charity partner for 2019.

As a result of this new partnership with the Rainbow Club, the hotel will raise funds on behalf of the charity throughout the year through various events. The Rainbow Club is hoping to raise €2 million to fund a new facility in Little Island.

Sandra Murphy, Group Event Production Manager with Trigon Hotels said: “We had a fantastic day at the Cork Car Show on Sunday at the Cork International Hotel and we raised a huge amount for the Rainbow Club, thanks to everyone who attended. A special thanks also to the volunteers who made the event possible. We were very excited to once again host this event in aid of our charity partner, the Rainbow Club.”

In addition to fundraising efforts, the hotel plans to work towards making its environment for guests with autism more inclusive by tailoring its facilities.

It is also providing its team with awareness training.

The hotel will now be working with the Rainbow Club to determine the additions and changes at the hotel.
