Young Leaders at SF Giants Irish Heritage Night 2012

On Tuesday September 18th,  San Francisco’s AIF Young Leaders gathered after the summer break for a night of baseball and fun.

The evening began with a pre-game reception in the Wine Room at Pete’s Tavern and an opportunity to meet Ireland’s new Vice Consul, Amy Stack.  West Coast Director,  Marjorie Muldowney, welcomed back a great bunch of friends of the Fund, including Kerry Egan & Jamie Hamm who have just announced their engagement following a recent trip to Ireland (heartiest congrats!).  Other guests included Neil Sands & Sarah Smith, Ian Casey, Ivan Harrow, Dori & Peter Martin, Kathy Prunty, John Farley, and Mark Muldowney.  New members of the group included Caoimhe & Eoghan Harney, Tim O’Reilly, Ann King & Steve Murphy, Scott Fowler, John Gagan, Mark Gagan, Amy Fechter with Jan & Dennis Fechter.

It was chilly by the Bay but our special Irish Heritage Night hats kept us toasty!  This was an exciting night to be at the ballpark as the Giants and starting pitcher Tim Lincecum were on top form.  From our club level seats, specially arranged by Joey Nevin, we got to see the Giants beat the Rockies 6-3; Colorado lost for the 12th time in its last 16 games at San Francisco.  Lincecum pitched San Francisco one win closer to an National League West crown and playoffs here we come!

Next stop Napa.  Please join us on Saturday, October 27th for the San Francisco Young Leaders Napa Valley Visit.   Save the date – space extremely limited.
