My name is Gareth Morgan and I'm currently in my final year of studying Commerce in UCD. I signed up for 100minds to make a positive impact in society!
I'm very excited to get involved in the 100minds initiative this year, with the aim of raising €1,000,000 for Childline. Childline needs crucial funds to continue the amazing 24 hour service that it currently provides for children in need in Ireland. Please check out this video for more information on the charity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOB1rsF3S8A
Following an impressive launch night for 100minds in the National Convention Centre, I am inspired and motivated to start planning my event for the months ahead. I have a few ideas in mind, which I will be pursuing in 2016. Watch this space for more info!

Just a quick little update on my event. I will be hosting an Opera Night in my golf club/ workplace in April. I am currently in the early stages of preparation. I have confirmed a date for Saturday 9th April 2016. I am aware that this is leaving it late, as the 100minds Closing Ceremony will take place 6 days later. However, with proper execution, this event has great potential. Performers have been confirmed, so the next stages of planning are marketing, ticket pricing etc.
An Evening with Ann Murray at Foxrock Golf Club
Posted: about 4 years ago
I am absolutely delighted to say that I have hit my fundraising target.
On Saturday 9th April 2016, I held a musical evening with a four course meal in Foxrock Golf Club. 82 people were in attendance, including Veronica Dunne of the Royal Irish Academy of Music. €3,300 was raised through ticket and raffle sales.
Ann Murray (DBE), one of Ireland's most prestigious opera singers, traveled over from England to provide a performance free of charge. She performed a range of operatic and classical contemporary songs after dinner, with Ronan Murray accompanying her on the piano.
At the end of the night we held a raffle, with first prize being a round of golf for 4 at the K Club.
It was a great night for everyone, and most importantly there was huge generosity from all the members towards Childline.
