On Sunday, April 29, the grounds of St. Patrick Senior Center will be filled with music, fun and family - as friends and neighbors come together to celebrate one of Detroit’s greatest success stories, and an anchor of the Midtown community.
The 35th annual Spring Festival will feature hundreds of Irish entertainers, authentic food and drink, and activities for the entire family. There will be sales, games, a kids carnival, drawings and raffles – including a $10,000 grand prize.
“The festival is a tradition in Midtown,” says Satrice Coleman-Betts, St. Pats Executive Director. “It’s a chance to see all our friends, not to mention our major fundraising event of the year, so the more the merrier.”
Founded by Sister Mary Watson in 1973, St. Pats serves over 2000 seniors with daily meals, transportation and advocacy services, and a tremendous array of classes and activities. Like many non-profits today, the center is more dependent than ever on support from its friends, patrons and the public.
The festival is from 1 PM to 9 PM at St. Pats – located at 58 Parsons, behind Orchestra Hall. Admission is just $3.00 - $1.00 for children - and parking is free.
For more information on the festival, or about St. Pat’s, please call the center at 313 833-7080.
