Shine A Light Night with Focus Ireland

We are proud to announce that we, the Cork Business Association, have agreed to assist Focus Ireland in circulating and promoting Shine A Light Night 2018.

Shine a Light Night is a truly touching event where the Business Community come together for one night to raise vital funds and to stand in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness in Ireland today.

Why Focus Ireland?

Be part of this extraordinary night by joining the Business Leaders Sleep Out on Spike Island.

Join the CEO’S , General Managers and Managing Directors of Businesses throughout Cork and the region on Spike Island, where you can swap your executive chair for a sleeping bag and join your peers for one night to raise vital funds to support our work and send a message of solidarity to people experiencing homelessness in Cork and Ireland today.

This is really for YOU to commit and participate in the sleep out and to fundraise through business, community and family contacts. This can be through events, donations, sponsor cards and online. The target income is within the region of €2000 to €3000, but all fundraising amounts generated are welcome and appreciated.

Sign Up Procedure?
Simply register to participate by emailing and we will sign you up, get any support materials out to you and set up your on line fundraising page through Everyday Hero.

What other options might we have to support Focus Ireland?
If the Business Leaders Sleep Out clashes with your diary or does not suit, you can also get your team together and organise Shine A Light at Work by hosting a workplace Sleep Out. This is an option which builds awareness amongst a wider group and gives the opportunity to support our work and generate some funds.
