The 2nd Annual Coulee Hoolie Ceili was a Success!
Thank You to all who worked so hard to make our 2nd Annual Coulee Hoolie Ceili a success. What a great evening of dance, music, a silent auction and all round good family fun!
This event benefited The La Crosse Area Suicide
Prevention Initiative and Lisheens House in Bantry,
La Crosse Bantry Friendship Association hosted the 2nd annual Coulee Hoolie Ceili, on February 25, 2017. This charity fundraiser was organized to create a twinning with two similar groups, La Crosse Area Suicide Prevention Initiative and Lisheens House (Bantry, Ireland) and to strengthen LBFA's connection to La Crosse's sister city Bantry.
Proceeds of $2,200.00 were raised and shared between the two charities.
Many thanks to all of our members who helped make 2016 a great success!
From the Coulee Hoolie Ceili, two brat barn fundraisers, display set up at the Global Initiatives Week and UWL International Banquet, three parades, booths at Irishfest, speech at the Irish Garden dedication and ending with our annual Christmas party, it has truely been a busy but, definitely a fun year! This 2017 promises more fun!
Please consider joining our LBFA family!
