The Chartered Accountants Student Society of Dublin (CASSD) hosted their annual Ball on Saturday, 9 March in The Ballsbridge Hotel. Sarah Ryan, a member of EisnerAmper Ireland’s International Business team, is currently Treasurer of CASSD and played a key role in organising the event, which is one of the biggest in the student calendar each year.
CASSD plays a vital role in the student body, providing a link between students and the institute as well as organising numerous events throughout the year.
This year, CASSD chose ‘Empower the Family’ as their sponsored charity. ‘ETF’ supports disadvantaged families in Ireland through education, supporting young disadvantaged single parents in Ireland, with the determination and ability, to successfully complete university. EisnerAmper Ireland was delighted to sponsor staff tickets in addition to donating a spot prize for such a worthy cause.
The evening kicked off with a Prosecco reception, where attendees were greeted by a live saxophone player. The smooth jazz provided a welcoming and relaxed atmospheric back-drop as students took pictures next to a giant, illuminated flower wall.
In the dining hall, students were met by an extravagant ballroom with a goody bag full of treats on each chair. A raffle took place during the dinner with Michéal O’Cualain, a member of EisnerAmper Ireland’s Tax Team winning a Leinster Rugby Jersey, signed by the entire Leinster team. With the band set up, everyone got dancing until late into the night. A great time was had by all.
