Gentlemen’s St. Patrick’s Dinner

As the saying goes “Everyone is a little Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day”. Each year St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated not only in Ireland but throughout the world by Irish and non-Irish alike. In fact it is the most widely celebrated Saint’s Day on the planet. The Friends celebrate this holiday a week prior to the big day.  The event is a festive evening filled with laughter, good cheer and fellowship at this great Friends tradition. A worthy individual is honored as a result of supporting the Friends of Mercy throughout the years, and the evening customarily ends with a guest speaker or some type of entertainment that brings plenty of laughter and comradery to the guests.

Traditionally, the profits raised from the Friends of Mercy previous year’s events are presented in a check to Mercy Hospital’s administration at the dinner.
