You're Invited!

You are invited to the 122nd annual St. Patrick's Day Dinner hosted by the Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago and President James F. Coyne, on Friday March 15th, 2024.   This event marks the beginning of the parade weekend in Chicago, and it is a pleasure to announce the honor of our former President, Peter O’Brien, as the Grand Marshal, along with Patrick Kennedy and the Kennedy Forum as the Guest of Honor for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. 

122nd Annual St. Patrick's Day Dinner

The Dinner will be chaired by IFC Board members Devon Bruce, Partner at Power Rogers LLP, and Pat Clair.  The Dinner will begin with cocktails at 6pm and dinner at 7:30pm. Dancing to Rich Daniels and the City Lights Orchestra and a special presentation by the O’Hara School of Irish Dance will follow.


Co-chair Patrick Clair comments, “Our sponsors and table buyers are important to our success. We invite all of our members and friends to join with us to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and support scholarships for Catholic High Schools and Irish cultural organizations through the Irish Fellowship Club Foundation.” Sponsorships are available up to $10,000 and tables are $2250. Guests are asked to visit the Irish Fellowship Club website to purchase tickets, tables and sponsorships.


Says Club President Jim Coyne, “I am grateful to Devon Bruce and Pat Clair for their leadership of this kick-off for the St. Patrick’s Day Weekend in Chicago.  The Dinner is an opportunity for Irish Fellowship Club members and guests to celebrate our heritage and raise important funds for our Foundation to support Catholic education in the Chicagoland area and Irish cultural organizations.”
