How To Be Irish in Philly This Weekend
Unfortunately, there are clashing events on Saturday night, all worthy. Here are your choices:
On Saturday, starting at 6:30 PM, Irish Northern Aid will mark the 26th anniversary of the Bloody Sunday killings in Derry, followed by an awards dinner honoring Kathy McGee Burns of the St. Patrick’s Day Observance Association, Charlie Schlegel of Irish Northern Aid and Bob Grover of Clan na Gael.
A Beef and Beer Benefit at the National Guard Armory, starting at 7 PM, will raise funds for the family of Philadelphia Police Officer Chuck Cassidy, who was gunned down last year when he tried to foil a robbery in West Oak Lane.
There will be music, dancing, and great food when the Philadelphia County National Convention of the AOH holds its annual fundraiser at St. Dominic’s Hall in Philadelphia, starting at 8 PM.
