On Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 the Ancient Order of Hibernians will hold their annual Emerald Ball at the Hilton, Pearl River, New York. At this event, we honor those for their contributions to promoting our organization and for their accomplishments in their personal lives. This year’s honorees are as follows:
- HIBERNIAN OF THE YEAR, EDMOND O’DEA
- BUSINESS PERSON OF THE YEAR, HEATHER BOWIE
- PARADE COMMANDER, MEGAN LEAVEY, USMC
- GRAND MARSHAL, JOAN MOORE
- AIDE TO THE GRAND MARSHAL, NYC, DANIEL DONOHUE
It is with that in mind that we, the AOH, ask you to take an ad in our Emerald Ball Journal. By taking an ad in the journal, you will aid the AOH in staging an event that offers free and safe family fun for thousands of members of our community. The Emerald Ball is a very enjoyable night for all that attend, and it represents the AOH at its finest hour. At the same time, it is also the primary fundraiser for the Rockland County St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The cost of running the parade is quite substantial, and every year, as with everything, the expenses rise.
In closing, the Rockland County AOH and its membership would like to thank you in advance for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on parade day, March 17th, 2019.
