This is IT! The largest fundraiser for the Parade, and the Biggest Celebration & Competition of Irish wit, wisdom and wherewithal!
Vying for the title of Smilin' Irishman are the county’s most prominent Irish organizations, including the Firefighters Emerald Society, Law Enforcement Emerald Society, Ancient Order of Hibernians, and of course, the Irish Congress of Southern California. So, despite our FSOSP contender Brian Brady’s Blarney and Bravado, he’s gonna need to bolster his war-chest pre-event, or risk crimping that liltish smile of his and our dear organization’s! Remember, this is a Chicago-style election and he with the mo$t vote$ win$!!!
In addition to a raucous competition sure to bring smiles to your faces and dollars to the parade coffers, your $10 entry donation also presents a fantastic raffle with all kinds of prizes, food and drink specials from our friends at McGregor's and the HIGHLY spirited lyrical stylings from Tony Cummins and Brendan Kennedy!
So, give early and give often before the battle to fund Brian’s Battle Bank and ensure our victory. Should be interested in contributing to the treasure trove of raffle prizes, email [email protected]
