The event will take place on Friday, May 17 from 6.30pm-9pm at the popular venue in the seaside resort on the eve of the international road race.

Ballymoney star William was tragically killed in a crash at the Skerries 100 in 2018.

Footage of his 119 road racing victories will be shown on the night and an auction and raffle will be held, with all proceeds being placed into a trust for his two young daughters, Ella and Willa Wren.
