The 2FM Xmas Ball is returning for 2017 and will see The Script headline the event at 3Arena.
Last year’s event, also in aid of the ISPCC, raised over €460,000. It will be hosted by 2FM presenters including Nicky Byrne, Jenny Greene, Eoghan McDermott, Bernard O’Shea, Jennifer Zamparelli, Keith Walsh, Tracy Clifford and more.
Dan Healy Head of RTÉ 2FM and Radio Strategy said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be heading into our 3rd year with the 2FM Xmas Ball in aid of the ISPCC which is a very important event in our calendar. Judging by the amount of texts we are receiving from our listeners regarding this year’s ball, I am certain we’ll again raise a huge amount of money for a cause that is close to all our hearts at 2FM. This year’s line up is another great showcase of top Irish music talent, all of whom are great live performers. It’ll be great to be back in the 3Arena working with Caroline Downey and her team at the ISPCC and I can’t wait for the 19th of December.”
Caroline Downey, President of The ISPCC and producer of the 2FM Xmas Ball, said: “We are delighted to have so many talented and successful artists perform at the 2FM Xmas Ball in aid of the ISPCC. We are truly blessed to have their support along with 2FM, the team in MCD and the 3Arena. We will continue to strive and help children in Ireland who need the ISPCC and Childline and We Will Never Give Up On A Child. Ever.”
All parties involved with the 2FM Xmas Ball are providing their services free of charge on the night including artists, organisers and 3Arena. The complete funding of the concert goes towards the financial support and aid of the 24 hour phone-line and the ISPCC services dedicated to helping children.
