Irish USI logoWoodstock – Local residents have the opportunity to support critical children and family programs at United Services 17th Annual Irish Night, to be held Friday, March 16 at The Mansion at Bald Hill in Woodstock.

Irish Night includes a gourmet corned beef and cabbage dinner, with fish and vegetarian options available.

Live music with Irish sing-alongs will be performed by Eastern Connecticut’s own Kala Farnham, an award-winning performing songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Irish Night’s silent auction features many exciting items, including sports, music and movie memorabilia – this year featuring signed items from the epic series Star Wars, music legend B.B. King and billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk– and a 6 day African Safari for two! Packages of local gift certificates, tickets and passes will also be included.

All proceeds will benefit United Services Children and Family Programs: These include:

  • One of the busiest Child Guidance Clinics in the state, providing trauma-informed and trauma-focused mental health services for children and adolescents.
  • Family Programs, including parent education and support groups such as Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
  • The region’s only Domestic Violence Program, providing 24/7/365 emergency crisis, shelter and supportive services to women and children.
