KPMG Alumni Annual Dinner 2012 

The KPMG Alumni Dinner 2012 took place on Friday 9 March at the fabulous Convention Centre in Dublin. It was one of our largest and most successful events to date, with almost 600 alumni travelling from far and wide to enjoy the evening.

Harpist Claire O’Donnell provided a beautiful musical backdrop as people arrived to mingle and catch up with fellow alumni during the drinks reception.

Before dinner, Terence O’Rourke (Managing Partner, KPMG in Ireland) welcomed friends and former colleagues to the event and spoke about KPMG’s plans to reinforce the legacy of Denis O’Connor, our former Managing Partner who sadly passed away from cancer over five years ago. KPMG has agreed to support the drive to raise €125,000 to help provide a Daffodil Centre at Dublin’s Mater Hospital. Terence spoke about the plans for the Daffodil Centre, highlighting its huge value as a “drop in” resource for those diagnosed with cancer and their family and friends. Terence also noted that the centres are open to all, with no referral or appointment necessary.

With the speech concluded, the dinner service began and the Convention Centre provided impeccable service and wonderful food and wine throughout the evening.

 

The nominated charities for this year’s raffle were Irish Autism Action and the Children’s Sunshine Home. True to form, our guests were extremely generous, and over €15,000 was raised for these well deserving causes. As ever, we are most grateful to everyone who contributed on the evening.
