The Sag Harbor Lions Club will celebrate the spirit of the Irish, Ireland’s culture and food with its St Patrick’s dinner on Thursday, March 15, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the social hall of the Old Whalers’ Church on Union Street in Sag Harbor.
Tickets are $25 for adults; $15 for children 12 or younger, and offer patrons a choice of succulent sliced Corned Beef and Cabbage, prepared by Lion Tony Lawless of Cromer’s Market in Noyac, or hearty Red Lentil and Roast Carrot Stew created by Lion Sean Kiely, both garnished with red potato and carrot, classic Irish Soda bread dessert with coffee or tea. Take out is available, and adult beverages will be on tap for a $5 donation. Musicians Job Potter and Friends will perform traditional Irish music with contemporary songs throughout the evening with MC Brian Dougherty behind the microphone.
The net profits from the Corned Beef dinner go to several charities in the community, including the Sag Harbor Community Food Pantry; East End Hospice; Long Island Eye Bank; the club’s Easter Egg Hunt on April 1 and scholarships awarded in June.
The Sag Harbor Lions Club was chartered in 1954 by Lions Club International, the world’s largest service club association. Men and women are serving in more than 200 countries and geographic areas with more than 1.4 million members in more than 46,000 clubs worldwide.
