Dublin's glamorous socialites descended on the Four Seasons Hotel in Ballsbridge yesterday for a charity lunch in aid of the Cari Foundation.

Cari provides a professional child therapy and counselling service to children and families who have been affected by child sexual abuse.

The lunch was attended by the foundation's patron Miriam Ahern and MC for the afternoon was TV3's Alan Hughes.

Guests included Terry McCoy, sisters Georgina Byrne and Cecelia Ahern, former model Yvonne Keating, model Lisa Murphy and businesswoman Norah Casey.

Also in attendance were Carmel Breheny from Marks & Spencers, former Dragon's Den judge Norah Casey, TV personality Sean Musanje along with Chris Doyle and Gary Kavanagh to name but a few of the charitable socialites who enjoyed the afternoon.

The stylish ladies were dressed in chic looks that were in keeping with the festive season.

The afternoon began with a champagne reception which was followed by a delicious four-course gourmet lunch with wines provided by M&S.

The glamorous guests didn't leave the lunch empty-handed as they were treated to goody bags which contained Cecelia Ahern's new book Love Rosie and a Newbridge Silverware Christmas tree decoration.

The afternoon finished with a fun-filled raffle and guests then moved onto House Dublin on Leeson Street to continue the celebrations last night.

Events such as yesterday's charity lunch are central to the foundation's fundraising efforts.

It is believed that in excess of €15,000 was raised at yesterday's event.

"Our fundraising events are more important than ever in the current recession where, every year, state funding to charities is reducing," commented Cari's CEO Mary Flaherty.

"It is cut by more than 15pc on three years ago and that represents a lot of lost therapeutic hours with families and employment in our organisation.
