~This year's Marketing Institute 'Hollywood Greats' Ball sponsored by the Mater Private Cork is yet again set to be one of Cork's most glamorous events on the calendar.~

Taking its cue from the recent launch event of the annual Marketing Institute of Ireland Cork (MII Cork), ‘Hollywood Greats’ Ball 2014, the Ball itself (sponsored by the Mater Private Cork) will certainly be 'A Night to Remember' for the marketing and business community of Cork and its environs. The unmissable event will take place at Silver Springs Moran Hotel on Saturday March 22nd and promises to be an evening of glamour and entertainment with lots of prizes to be won in aid of The Cork Samaritans, an independent charity providing confidential non-judgmental support 24 hours a day for people experiencing depression or despair.

The glitterati of Cork will be met with a complimentary Corona Light drinks reception sponsored by Barry & Fitzwilliam, during which Bojangles, one of Cork's top jazz/swing quintets fronted by Conor O'Brien will provide upbeat entertainment. Comedian Alan Shortt is all set to MC the evening for the second year in a row, while Silver Springs Moran Hotel will put on yet another impressive meal with Oceans Eight on hand to keep the guests entertained through the night.

The Marketing Institute Ball is renowned for its goody bags and prizes and this year certainly won't disappoint. The goody bag is valued at €200, and everyone will receive a gift from Planet Embroidery and each couple will receive a beautifully piece crafted by Lucky Sods. The winner of the Jewellery Quiz will become the proud owner of a wonderful piece of jewellery from Cork’s own Designworks Studio specially commissioned for the Marketing Ball.
