Every year at the Irish Restaurant Awards, the Restaurants Association of Ireland Benevolent Fund avails of the opportunity to fundraise.

These funds go towards helping people in desperate need of help. Last year, the Benevolent Fund supported our two patron charities, The RISE Foundation and 1Life and the great work that they do.

The Restaurants Association of Ireland Benevolent Fund was founded in March 1996 for the purpose of supporting people from the hospitality & catering industry. The Benevolent Fund is made available for those currently or previously involved in the industry in Ireland.

Following on from your extremely generous support last year where €13,789.89 was raised throughout the year, we are looking to match that or do even better at this year’s upcoming Irish Restaurant Awards ceremony on June 10th.

We are asking members if they can donate a prize / voucher for individual table draws which we will be running at the Gala Dinner on the June 10th.

Throughout the evening we will run a competition at each of the tables in between awards. Funds from these competitions will be going directly to the Restaurants Association of Ireland Benevolent Fund.

Examples of some of the prizes we received so generously from members last year are listed below:

Prize Donated

Dinner for Two with Wine
One Nights B&B

To help us help others we need your help, so if you can donate a prize please contact Laura directly on or send in a prize marked for Laura/ Kim’s attention. We really appreciate your help & support.

Thank you for all your help and support, it is a testament to the strength and generosity of our members that the donations for the Restaurants Association of Ireland Benevolent Fund have continued to come in, and even rise, throughout these turbulent times.
