St. Brigid Raffle Winners Drawn
The ICC held our annual Feast of St. Brigid Raffle Drawing on February 1, 2024. It was a fun and festive evening as everyone gathered to celebrate being together and hear the winners announced, and the Cassin Academy of Irish Dance joined us to celebrate. Thank you to all our ICC volunteers, board members, and staff who worked so hard to sell tickets throughout the year! And thanks to everyone who purchased tickets to support our non-profit mission and ICC travel.
Winners were drawn for the first prize trip for two to Ireland or $5,000; the second prize 14k gold St. Brigid’s Cross pendant from Brian de Staic Jewellers; and two $100 gift certificates to the Irish House Restaurant and Trinity Pub. Congratulations to Cathy Belisle of Southwick who won the trip; and to Meg Munroe of Holyoke who won the pendant.
We were happy to see so many people join us in our workshop on St. Brigid’s Day. Special thanks to illustrator and Irish arts/history enthusiast Kathleen Joss who guided participants through a session of making a traditional St. Brigid’s Cross.
