Be sure to make a donation, small or large, and get your ticket to the Gala! It’s going to be a very special evening and the cause is dear to Gabriel’s heart. heart
Have you ever attended the annual Spirit of Ireland Gala in New York City, the fundraiser that supports the Irish Arts Center and its projects?
No? I haven’t either. But we all can this year!
Mark your calendars for Thursday, December 10, at 7:00 PM US Eastern Time!
From the Irish Arts Center:
An extraordinary event for extraordinary times: the Irish Arts Center Spirit of Ireland Gala is virtual this year and open to everyone.
We invite you to performances by Sting, Elvis Costello, Loah, Camille O’Sullivan, Declan O’Rourke, Joanie Madden & Cherish the Ladies, Arturo O’Farrill Quartet and more, plus appearances by Liam Neeson, Gabriel Byrne, Roma Downey, Colum McCann, Paul Muldoon and other special guests, as we celebrate the imminent completion of our new building—just weeks from now—and look ahead to a more hopeful horizon in 2021.
All donations are welcome, of course, especially as the final days of the building project are here, but a mere $5.00 gets you a ticket to this Virtual Gala, so go on! Let’s all CELEBRATE! heart
