Christmas Party 2015 Recap
On Thursday, December 10, 2015, members and friends of the Louisville Irish Fest gathered at the Baxter Ave. Molly Malone’s Irish Pub and Restaurant to celebrate the holidays and another successful fest. In addition to the exceptional food, endless glasses of Guinness and wonderful Irish sounds of Na Skylark (Lorinda Jones and Cathy Wilde), much of the evening was spent honoring several local organizations and providing support for their future.
This year’s organizations were:
- Wounded Warrior Project: Their mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Since 2013, the IAF has been able to donate $2,000 to help them in this mission.
- Wreaths Across America: Since 2012, IAF has been a proud part of their mission to Remember, Honor and Teach. This year, the IAF has donated $1,500 to help honor the fallen soldiers of our community.
- University of Louisville Autism Center at Kosair Charities: Since 2012, we are very proud to have been able to donate over $20,000 to help the Autism Center in their mission to improve and enrich the lives of those affected by Autism in our community.
- Bellarmine University. This year, the Louisville Irish Fest fulfills our three year, $15,000 commitment to help a student studying the Irish culture, history or arts in Ireland in partnership with Bellarmine Unviersity.
