6th Annual Coulee Hoolie Ceili

As you gear up for Saint Paddy’s day make sure to save some celebrating for the 6th Annual Coulee Hoolie Ceili (pronounced KAY-lee). The La Crosse-Bantry Friendship Association (LBFA) announces this year’s event will be Saturday, March 26 at the American Legion, 711 6th St. S. in La Crosse.

This unique Irish celebration will include music, dance, storytelling, food and fun. The Coulee Hooligans will again provide a backdrop to the evening with traditional Irish music, while caller Tim Jenkins calls a variety of Irish set dances, complete with instruction so everyone can join in. In addition, there will be Irish food, a cash bar and silent auction.

This year’s event will benefit Citizen Advocacy in La Crosse and CoAction in our sister city, Bantry, Ireland. Half a world away in Bantry, Ireland are working to provide support for people with a wide range of ability. LBFA wants to help raise awareness, raise funds and bring a little Irish celebration to La Crosse.

Proceeds from last year’s virtual event funded $3,000 split between WisCorps in La Crosse and Bantry Tidy Towns. This year the goal is to at least match, preferably exceed, last year’s numbers for these organizations.

The Coulee Hoolie Ceili will include music, Irish set dancing (lessons included), storytelling silent auction, Irish food and cash bar. Silent auction items to include a guitar, Brewers tickets, spa package, YMCA gift certificates, local dining certificates, gift baskets and much more!
