The Chartered Accountants Student Society of Dublin (CASSD) hosted their annual Ball on Saturday, 29 February in The Ballsbridge Hotel. Sarah Ryan, a member of EisnerAmper Ireland’s Accounting & Compliance team, who was elected Education Officer of the Chartered Accountants Student Society of Ireland (CASSI) at their Annual General Meeting on 1 February 2020 helped organise 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 ‘Aware’ as their sponsored charity. Aware undertakes to create a society where people affected by stress, depression, bipolar disorder and mood related conditions are understood, supported, free from stigma, and are encouraged to access appropriate therapies. EisnerAmper Ireland was delighted to sponsor staff tickets for such a worthy cause.
The theme for the ball was “CASSD and the Chocolate Factory”. 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 ate from a donut wall, popcorn machine, and took pictures next to giant Wonka and CASSD backdrops. There was also a “magic mirror” photo booth with blow up props for students to avial of. A great time was had by all.
