Young Leaders: St. Patrick’s Celebration with Elevation

On Friday, March 16, 2012, the Chicago Young Leaders gathered to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Elevation.

Elevation is the ultimate tribute to U2. Delighting fans across the country since 2001, Elevation brought the authentic sights and sounds that make U2 one of the most popular bands in the world.

This was a terrific opportunity to join fellow Young Leaders and supporters of The American Ireland Fund as they supported The Worldwide Ireland Funds Promising Ireland Campaign. The Campaign is working to raise $100 million by the end of 2013 on behalf of Irish charities. Charities across the island of Ireland are experiencing an increased demand for their services at a time of a major reduction in resources. The Campaign’s title – Promising Ireland – reflects The Worldwide Ireland Funds’ pledge to these groups as well as a belief in Ireland’s future. Thanks to your generosity, over 300 projects and organizations have already received support from the Promising Ireland Campaign.

The committee would like to thank fellow Young Leader Meghan Lee for organizing the event.
