The traveling Shamrock will be at River Lee's for the next year. River Lee's in East Dundee collected $1300.00. River Lee's staff worked to have the Shamrock trophy live there for a year.
And thank you to the community.
Businesses and bars collected an astounding $7000.00 in 2022 for Charity.
A $50 prize to the person that collects the most buttons!
A big congratulations and giant thank you to Carol’s Corner!
Another year passed without our annual Parade. This did not deter the bars and restaurants in East Dundee participating in the Shamrocks for Charity.
Bars across town were once again decorated with Shamrocks with patron’s name on them. Fashionable Shamrock for Charity buttons were sold. Many generous folks proudly wore them throughout the season. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our community as we collected $2100.00!
Carol’s Corner sold hundreds of buttons and Shamrocks!
Shamrocks with customers signatures were plastered on their walls! They collected just under ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS.
2021 Other Rock Stars and Partners in our Mission
Other establishments that participated were, Diamond Jim’s, Rosie O’Hare’s, Black & Grey, River Street Tavern and Cubby Bullfrog.
Diamond Jim's sold an astounding $785.00 worth of Shamrocks to take the trophy for most money raised during the weeks leading up to our cancelled 2020 Parade. We are so grateful! This money was given to local food pantries as the need for help was never greater. Thank you Diamond Jim's!
Chubby Bullfrog Bar & Grill!
Chubby's sold $2200 worth of Shamrock's and holds the top spot for money collecting.
Our Dundee community supported the idea to advertise St. Patrick's Day greetings on postcards for $5.00. We now have a friendly community competition, and the results are thousands of dollars donated for food pantries and the McNamee Foundation charities. The establishment that raises the most funds gets the Shamrock Trophy for a year.
We are very grateful for the bars and businesses again offering to support Shamrocks have been recycled with the shiny parts and pieces from previous years.
Our Shamrock trophy was designed, created and donated by Blair Motl. Thank you Blair, your donation inspires us!
