The American Ireland Fund DC Young Leaders hosted their 2ndAnnual “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Celebration” on September 21, 2012.

The evening’s program included musical entertainment from the renowned 40 Thieves, a live and silent auction, a whiskey tasting generously provided by Jameson Irish Whiskey, a live performance from DC’s Irish Step Dancers and a raffle for 2 round trip tickets to Dublin, Ireland! The DC young Leaders raised $18,000 for the Fund’s $140 million Promising Ireland Campaign which aids in the support of hundreds of charities in Ireland. It was an outstanding night for a great cause.
