The event will take place on Thursday, March 14th at 6:00 p.m., at the Bayonne Masonic Lodge, located at 888 Avenue C. A $35 donation to the BEOF will cover Irish food, beverages, and musical entertainment.
The live band will be The Screaming Orphans, a popular, four-woman group from
County Donegal, Ireland.
â€œThroughout the year, the BEOF provides social services for seniors and people of all ages who are in need. Please join us in celebrating the St. Patrickâ€™s season by supporting the BEOF and enjoying The Screaming Orphans,” Mayor Jimmy Davis said in a statement.
Furthermore, the event will feature an Irish soda bread contest. First, second, and third
place finishers will win ShopRite gift cards. Raffles to benefit the BEOF will also
take place at the event.
