Shamrock Shindig Fundraising Event
It is with great sadness that we are writing to share that due to an abundance of caution regarding the transmission of COVID-19 virus, we have had to cancel our Shamrock Shindig Fundraiser event scheduled for tomorrow evening, Thursday, March 12th. We appreciate the support of all those sponsors, donors, and those planning to attend.
The PJB Shamrock Shindig is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year and we are devastated to have to cancel. We were overwhelmed with the number of fantastic auction items, so we are considering an online auction and will announce it when we have more details.
In the meanwhile, in lieu of attending the Shamrock Shindig, we invite you to support us by donating online. To donate, please click on the link below.
