The St. Patrick’s Day Society Communion Breakfast serves as the main fundraising event for St. Patrick’s Center, a respite for people in need on Wilmington’s East Side. Joe Conklin, master impressionist and Philadelphia radio personality, will headline the March 14th fundraiser. Over its twenty years, the event has raised nearly $2,000,000 for the center.
Mass begins at St. Patrick’s Church on 14th and King Streets at 7:15 a.m. and is followed by a parade up King Street to the breakfast, which begins at 9 am, at the DoubleTree Hotel. Tickets are $50 per person.
