Half Way to St. Patrick’s Day!
Last night we also headed to the Josephine Butler Parks Center near Meridian Hill Park for the American Ireland Fund of DC Young Leaders’ Half Way to St. Patrick’s Day celebration. We snapped Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley bookended by Northern Ireland Bureau director Norman Houston and Embassy of Ireland DCM Kevin Conmy.
American College of Cardiology’s Carissa Maguire, American Ireland Fund’s John Gaine, EagleStone’s Megan Molloy, 720 Strategies’ Angela Chiappetta, and Future Civic Leaders’ John McCarthy. There was music by The Danny Burns Band, called an "Irish Heart with American Soul."
Merrill Lynch’s Patrick Murphy, FaegreBD Consulting’s Allison Durham, Morgan Stanley’s Benjamin Martin, and Education Finance Council’s Samantha Dezur. Guests enjoyed an open bar with specialty cocktails provided by Pearl Dive and a whole lot of Guinness.
Sugar Association’s Courtney Gaine, Logistics Capital Strategy’s Richard Holohan, and Host Committee member and Sport & Health’s Margo Gaine. There was a great appetizer selection, a mashed potato bar, and a silent auction with a trip to Ireland.
