This popular black tie event every March celebrates St. Patrick’s Day always promises to attract a sellout crowd, with proceeds from the dinner benefiting educational grants for deserving college-bound high school seniors of Irish heritage and other charitable endeavors.
The Irishman of the Year and Order of St. Brendan Award are selected during the dinner. The Order of St. Brendan honors native born sons of Ireland who have added to the luster of their Irish heritage here in the United States.
The contributions from the Dinner Journal ads have assisted the FSSP in awarding twenty-five $1,000 Brother Peter Mannion Memorial Grants to deserving graduating high school seniors of Irish descent. The FSSP has awarded more than $700,000 in grants over the years, and we’ve had well over 12,000 people look through our ad journal.
