In December 2021, Wilsons Auctions Dublin hosted their annual event ‘12 Auctions of Christmas’. This event supported the Marie Keating Foundation, with one Lot from each of the 12 auctions being dedicated to raising funds.
Over the 12 auctions, Wilsons Auctions Dublin is delighted to announce that the campaign raised a total of €5,400.
With a variation of assets being auctioned off at auction, some of the dedicated Lots included toys, homeware items, laptops and even cars and machinery.
Ricky Wilson, Director at the Wilsons Auctions Dublin branch said ‘The 12 auctions of Christmas were a great success. A significant amount of time, work and marketing went into this campaign and it shows with the total we have raised for the Marie Keating Foundation. This money will go towards vital funding and help the foundation with its programmes. Wilsons Auctions would like to extend a massive thank you to all our wonderful customers who also helped raise this total.’
Today the Marie Keating foundation is one of the leading voices in Ireland for cancer prevention, awareness, and support. They are committed to being there for people diagnosed with cancer and their families at every step of this cancer journey and the services reflect that. The resources and support services to reach thousands of people every yea, giving education, information and advice focused on cancer prevention and early detection, as well as providing support services and financial assistance to those living with cancer.
Following the death of their mother Marie from breast cancer in 1998, the Keating family promised to provide the people of Ireland with vital information and advice which would support and inform on the signs and symptoms of cancer to prevent or detect cancer at its earliest stages.
This money will help support the mobile information units, the Survive and Thrive Programmes, Positive Living Meetings, Corporate Wellness Workshops, BCRA Peer Support and more
