RCSI hosts annual Ballroom of Romance

31 July 2012

More than 250 senior citizens visited the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) last Thursday evening for the Ballroom of Romance. The Ballroom of Romance is an annual entertainment evening of dinner, music and dancing held for senior citizens living in the catchment area of the College. This was the second time RCSI hosted the event, after the success of last year's Ballroom of Romance.
