St. Patrick’s Day Gala

March 11, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$125.00 – $20,000.00

** UPDATE: The gala is now sold out. To join a waiting list, please email fssp.philadelphia@gmail.com **

All members are welcome to join us in celebrating our 252nd Annual St. Patrick’s Gala, which will be held in March for the first time since 2019.

We will welcome special guest Minister Norma Foley, Minister for Education and TD for Kerry,  and our colleagues from the Consulate General of Ireland in NY.

Our special guest speaker is Mr. John Crowley, Executive Chairman of Amicus Therapeutics. John and his family have been profiled numerous times on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and are the subjects of a book by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Geeta Anand, “The Cure: How a Father Raised $100 Million-And Bucked the Medical Establishment-In a Quest to Save His Children.” The major motion picture, Extraordinary Measures, starring Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford, is inspired by the Crowley family journey. John is the author of a personal memoir: Chasing Miracles: The Crowley Family Journey of Strength, Hope, and Joy.

Special Recognition: Joseph & John Heenan
