Super Trooper ABBA fans raise €1,000 in aid of Build 4 Life

The Mardyke Entertainment Complex hosted a Fabulous Mamma Mia Fundraiser raising €1,000 in aid of Build 4 Life on Thursday 27th November. Girls from all over Cork were treated to a Private Screening of Mamma Mia! The Movie, while sipping cocktails; and once the girls were in the singing mood, they sang and danced like “Dancing Queens” in the latest addition to the Mardyke, Karaoke K-Pods!

Build 4 Life fundraisers teamed up with the Mardyke to organise an evening of sing-along fun in aid of this very worthy cause coinciding with the release of Mamma Mia: The Movie on DVD. Build 4 Life was founded by friends and family of Cystic Fibrosis Patients in Cork and Kerry.  The aim of Build 4 Life is to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis in the region and raise over €1 million to develop Ireland’s first dedicated CF treatment unit within Cork University Hospital.. 

Following the screening of the movie, all the girls were invited to sing many of their beloved ABBA songs, such as “S.O.S.”, “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me” in the newly redecorated Mamma Mia Themed K-Pod upstairs in the Mardyke. K-Pods are soundproofed rooms that can accommodate up to 16 people and come complete with a built in Karaoke Screen, song databases of 5,000 songs and cordless mikes, so you can sing away to your heart’s content without the worry of embarrassing yourself in front of complete strangers.

Sinead Dwane, who organised the event on behalf of Build 4 Life said: “Everyone had so much fun tonight at the Mardyke, a real girlie treat of singing and dancing, while at the same time raising money for this great cause. It’s so important that the fundraising continues and fun events like this make it really enjoyable as well as satisfying.”

Dymphna Lordan, Marketing Manager of the Mardyke said: “Here in the Mardyke we are delighted to support Build 4 Life; we held a number of fundraising events for the charity earlier this year during Cork CF Week, and we continue to support them in any way we can. Karaoke has really come back into fashion since Mamma Mia was released this summer, so we thought this event was the perfect fit for the Mardyke as we now have our newly redecorated Karaoke K-Pods so all girls were able to try them out.”
