St. Patrick’s Society Annual Charity Ball – The St. Patrick’s Society hosted its Annual Charity on March 2nd, 2018, and was at the Salle de Bal Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Château Champlain.
A long-standing charitable ball is not only the kick-off to the numerous festivities surrounding the Irish season in Montreal, but also a key event helping the Society raise funds towards its charitable, educational and cultural endeavours.
It was a black-tie event that was attended by the who’s who of Montreal’s business, government, sports and cultural communities.
