IWG at the Emerald Ball
The IWG ladies brought out the glam and the spirits in full force at the St.Patrick’s Society Emerald Ball.
Three of our original IWG members, Anna Gambles, Sylvia Shalev and Joanne Ryan Taylor who are on the St. Patrick’s Society committee helped organize this annual event. They hosted 2 full tables of IWG members, and other members were seated throughout, making it a great showing for the club.
The night was a roaring success, with several Ambassadors as well as our own attending, the Fatima Center children dancing, and Ireland beating Scotland while we watched in the Scruffy Murphy’s pop up pub.
Between chatting with other guests and getting the dancing going, there was hardly any time to tuck into the delicious 7 courses. The floor was packed for hours as we rocked through 2 fantastic bands.
There were lots of winners in the raffle and silent auction. A few members went away with hotel stays and wine. Our own Gina Galvin bid for and won a black pearl necklace supplied by Spokes Jewelry’s Emma Boudah.
There was a genius photobooth, and we spent a LOT of time playing with poses.
