CRY’s (Cardiac Risk in the Young) ninth annual Pure Style Fashion Luncheon in association with the Design Centre, took place today, Friday 29th September 2017 in the InterContinental Hotel, 4 Simmonscourt Rd, Dublin 4.

The fund-raising event is held annually in aid of CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young), an Irish charity that offers free screening and support to those who have lost loved ones to SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome). The funds raised from today’s event will go directly towards the invaluable work that is ongoing at the Centre for Cardiac Risk in Young Persons in Tallaght Hospital.


Lucia Ebbs, Business Operations Manager of CRY Ireland said: “This is will be the 9th annual Pure Style luncheon and is one of the main fundraising events in the CRY calendar each year. We are so thrilled to have the Design Centre on board this year who are showcasing some amazing collections today. The money raised from this event each year is vitally important to CRY Ireland to help us continue the free screening service we offer in the CRYP Centre (The Centre for Cardiovascular Risk in Younger Persons) at Tallaght Hospital. We rely heavily on donations to appreciate the service and support to those affected by Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Every year the CRY Pure Style Fashion Luncheon is such a huge success and seems to get bigger and better year on year.”
