500 guests gathered for The American Ireland Fund Boston Young Leaders’ St. Patrick’s Celebration at the Boston Harbor Hotel and raised over $120,000 on March 14th. It was another great Irish night in Boston.
The 2013 event was co-chaired by Patrick Carney, Jr. of The Claremont Company, Maura Neal Fitzpatrick, formerly of the Office of Senator John Kerry and Devin Condron of Morgan Stanley. Special guests included Ireland’s Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government Phil Hogan, T.D. and Consul General of Boston, Michael Lonergan. The crowd enjoyed terrific Irish music played by local band Devri, great food and drink, and an exciting auction and raffle! The raffle was highlighted by two round trip tickets from Boston to Ireland donated by Aer Lingus.
Steve Greeley, New England Director of the Fund, thanked the crowd for their continued support and Maura Fitzpatrick spoke about her experience visiting the Rebel Wheelers project in Cork, Ireland helping disabled children, bringing home to the gathered supporters the reach of their work in Ireland.
