Irish eyes will be smiling when the 34th Annual Forever Green settles on Navy Pier in support of Chicago charities

I found this and decided to post it because during times of turmoil, it is nice to look forward to celebration. St. Patrick's Day in Chicago is the best! Everyone is Irish on that day and they color the Chicago River green and sometimes have green beer and plenty of Irish whiskey.
Can you tell I have celebrated St. Patrick's Day in Chicago more than a few times.
Well, if you are in the area, please attend. Proceeds benefit an Autism organization.
Thanks!


When: March 6, from 5 to 10 p.m.
Where: Navy Pier's Grand Ballroom, 600 E. Grand Ave.
Who: Anyone 21 and older, and you don't have to be Irish

Some local musical acts will appear at Chicago's largest St. Patrick's Day bash and charitable event.
The 34th year, the Young Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago's annual Forever Green party will be held on March 6 in the Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier with special guests, the Larkin and Moran Brothers, the Weber Band, the Shannon Rovers and more.

The festive scene at Navy Pier is sure to sway folks into a green mood early this year in advance of Chicago St. Patrick's Day parades, while supporting two local charities, one of which provides support to Autism.

The 34th edition of the annual March celebration will raise money and awareness for the Maeve McNicholas Memorial Foundation, which fights pediatric brain tumors, and AAction Autism, which supports international humanitarian efforts confronting autism.

Besides contributing to two Chicago area charities, Forever Green will also feature live performances from the Chicago bands and performances from Irish dance troupes.

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $40 or at the door for $45. VIP tickets will also be available for $60 in advance and $65 at the door.
