A fundraising effort to help end homelessness and hunger in Philadelphia targets those whose ancestors knew both all too well–the Irish.
It’s that time again. We start the week with two parades and end it with a few more with lots of fun in between.
The Celtic roots band is picking up fans all across the country and Canada, but this weekend they have a concert at the Irish Center in Philadelphia for the hometown fans whom they call “RUNAtics.”
It marked a first for the organization, which also celebrated its founder, William McLaughlin, and his wife and business partner, Natalie, as well as a Camden parish priest who has brought revitalization to the city’s poorest areas. Photos and videos.
A week before the parade, organizers brought in plenty of “green.”
