Drag queen dress up, complimentary blow-drys and raffles, it’s that time of year again at Peter Mark!  The annual Petermarkathon fundraiser is back and coming to Peter Mark Letterkenny, Donegal from Friday 26th – Sunday 28th October 2018.

This year the Peter Mark team will be raising vital funds for the Irish Cancer Society to help support its Cancer Nurseline a free helpline staffed by trained cancer nurses, to offer a listening ear and practical advice to anyone who has concerns or questions about cancer.

The Peter Mark salon in Donegal is tasked with coming up with their own unique way to raise money, so visitors to their local Peter Mark Lucan salon can expect drag queen dress up, complimentary blow-drys, raffles and lots of other fun events over the weekend!

Commenting on the launch, Peter O’Rourke, CEO, Peter Mark said, “Our annual Petermarkathon is a key event in our calendar and one we as a team very much look forward to. Over the years we have raised hundreds of thousands of Euros for charities across Ireland. Each year we select a new charity to raise money for and we are delighted to partner this year with The Irish Cancer Society. In particular, we will be raising money to support the wonderful work of the Cancer Nurseline.”

Averil Power, CEO of Irish Cancer Society said: “We are delighted to be the beneficiary of the Petermarkathon which will raise vital funds for our Cancer Nurseline service. This year over 40,000 people will get a cancer diagnosis in Ireland. That diagnosis can be frightening and overwhelming. That’s why our Cancer Nurses are available on the Freephone Cancer Nurseline to offer emotional support and advice to anyone concerned about any aspect of cancer."
