Mayor's Shamrock Ball Has Good Fundraising Year

The annual soiree boasts $3,000 more than last year's event.

While the recent Mayor’s Shamrock Ball proved to be fun for all, it also proved to be a great success in fundraising.

According to the Independent News, the event raised $27,000 for Valley Industries Sheltered Workshop, which is an increase of $3,000 from the past year.

“This speaks volumes about the tremendous support we received from the community and local businesses for Valley Industries,” Hazelwood Police Chief  Carl Wolf said in the article. “Despite a down economy, it was great to see that we surpassed our efforts last year and more people saw the value of purchasing tickets for our cause.  St. Louisans are known for their generosity and the large crowd we had at Garden Villas North is living proof of that fact.”

The Shamrock Ball is a fundraiser for the Sheltered Workshop in Hazelwood. Valley Industries is a nonprofit organization that provides employment for adults with developmental disabilities.
