Ramona Nicholas will attend this year's North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball Ball as its celebrity guest tonight in the Silver Tassie, Letterkenny.
A self-made, award winning entrepreneur, she  is Joint Managing Director of the Cara Group. Cara employs over 180 people.
The headquarters  of the group is based in Ballyshannon.

A qualified pharmacist, Ramona is passionate about the growth of entrepreneurship in Ireland, especially female entrepreneurs and is a mentor to female start-ups. Corporate Social Responsibility is also close to Ramona's heart and through the ‘Cara in the Community’ Initiative, they have raised over €150,000 for local and national charities.

She believes that in order to receive, one must give back. This belief was very much reflected in Ramona's reply to the committee's invitation to attend this year's Breast Cancer Ball as our celebrity guest. In her gracious letter accepting the invitation Ramona wrote "I'm delighted to be able to attend an event for an extremely worthwhile cause."

Ramona completed two series as a Dragon on the RTE Series ‘Dragons’ Den’ and was the only female and youngest person to complete the series ‘The Secret Millionaire’ in 2012.
