‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me A Ticket!’ Spectacular fundraiser coming soon for Down Syndrome Centre Cork


A unique fundraising event will take place at the Rochestown Park Hotel on Friday, October 4th in aid of the Down Syndrome Centre Cork.

Taking inspiration from the massively popular TV show ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’, the event will challenge local celebrities, friends and family of the Centre to become ‘jungle campmates’ for one night of outrageous entertainment and fun! It’s the first event of its kind in Cork. The red team on the night has received an early boost with the announcement that they will be captained by none other than Cork Senior Hurling Captain Séamus Harnedy.

Those taking part in the quirky fundraiser, will be put to the test by taking part in a variety of stomach challenging bush tucker and tension filled physical trials in a bid to be ultimately crowned the King or Queen of the Jungle!

The 24 brave contestants will be divided into two teams and pitted against each other in a bid to collect ‘stars’ for their teams by overcoming their greatest fears including hell holes, bugs, snakes and gourmet critters- yuck! It promises to be a wild evening of rivalry, shocks and plenty of laughs!
