    Since 2012, COPE Galway has been bringing business leaders together to experience a winter’s night on our streets and to raise funds for COPE Galway’s homeless services.

    In a shared experience with other business leaders, staying out on the streets together so close to Christmas builds and deepens relationships. This night leaves a lasting impression.
