You're Invited: Halfway to St. Patrick's Day on September 16

by guestofaguest · September 8, 2011

    The American Ireland Fund for Washington, D.C.'s Young Leaders is throwing the Halfway to St. Patrick's Day Blarney Ball a week from tomorrow on Friday, September 16.

    Buy your tickets HERE or view the PDF invite HERE.

    Indulge in cocktails and "heavy hors d'oeuvres" while placing your best offers for items in the silent auction, and dance to the music of the 19th Street Band. Among the items being auctioned? Aer Lingus tickets to Ireland, and a Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino package!

    Bring your green elbow pads, because you'll be rubbing those puppies with Washington's finest all night: the host committee is comprised of a handful of congressmen and dozens of young professionals (most with Irish-sounding last names, like event chair Reilly O'Connor).

    Proceeds from the event will benefit the Promising Ireland Campaign and the Washington Ireland Program.

    The event is taking place at the super cool Carnegie Institution for Science at 1530 P Street NW.

    Come dressed to impress! Guest of a Guest will be sending photographer Amine Ferchichi to the soiree.
