2018 South Side Irish Parade

2018 South Side Irish Parade

The South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee will host its annual Halfway to Parade Day celebration on Monday, Sept. 16.

The celebration will feature a golf outing at Ridge Country Club, 10522 S. California Ave., followed by a post-golf party in the clubhouse to support the 2020 South Side Irish Parade. The post-party celebration will feature live Irish music, dinner, an open premium bar and raffle prizes.

“We are bringing the golf outing back into the neighborhood and are thrilled to host at Ridge Country Club, allowing challenging play for golfers of all skill sets and opening the post-parade event to non-golfers as we gear up for the 2020 South Side Irish parade,” said Don Larisey, South Side Irish Parade committee member.

“The golf outing and party are crucial in helping us raise funds for next year’s parade to keep our celebration of family, community and Irish heritage marching down Western Avenue.”

The Halfway to Parade Day celebration begins with golf outing registration, check-in and lunch buffet at 11 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

Golf outing tickets include golf, beverages, lunch and post-party celebration for $200 per person. The post-party celebration, open to all, will feature beverages and heavy appetizer food stations from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the post-party only are $60 per person.

Halfway to Parade Day sponsorship opportunities are available by calling Don Larisey at (773) 960-7312.

Proceeds from the Halfway to Parade Day golf outing and post-party celebration will offset costs for operating the South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which will step off at noon on Sunday, March 15, 2020.
