AOIFA Fundraiser 2016 & 2017

The IACR was AOIFA’s designated charity for the years of 2016 and 2017.

The total of €54,000 was raised by more than eighty AOIFA clubs around the country over the period of two years. In early 2018 the Association of Irish Floral Artists (AOIFA) presented the cheque to the IACR. The IACR was delighted to announce three new awards in 2019 which are directly supported by these funds.
