Cork Airport Hotel turns to Jelly for Field of Dreams

Cork Airport Hotel
The Cork Airport Hotel has partnered with Down Syndrome Cork to make them its ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2016.

And there’s a really fun part for children

The significant partnership highlights the family-friendly focus at the new Cork Airport Hotel, where the emphasis is on giving families an opportunity to sit down together, talk and dine in a relaxing environment. The venue’s re-designed 80-seater stylish restaurant, Olivo is serving up authentic Italian dishes with flair, and has the city’s only Make Your Own Pizza station that is available to all children dining in the restaurant. It is currently running Saturdays between 4pm and 6pm, and there is an added bonus that kids also eat for free at weekends.

And for Field of Dreams

Part of the charity affiliation with Down Syndrome Cork will include the fundraising initiative ‘Dream for Dream’ at Olivo, encouraging children to give back to the community by choosing a “dream” jelly and ice-cream dessert. All proceeds will go to Down Syndrome Cork’s Field of Dreams, a three-acre farm at Curraheen’s Munster Agriculture Society grounds providing work and life skills development opportunities for adults born with Down Syndrome. A number of other fun, family-themed events will also run throughout 2016 to raise funds for further services provided at Down Syndrome Cork. – See more at:
