I had the pleasure of serving on the host committee for the annual The Ireland Funds’ Nantucket Celebration on Saturday night. Anne Finucane & Mike Barnicle hosted at their beautiful summer home. Co-chairing the celebration this year were George Albrecht, Paula & Bob Butler and Bob & Laura Reynolds. Acclaimed journalist and philanthropist, Maureen Orth, was the night’s honoree. The Nantucket Celebration has been a tradition for 20 years and is one of the Island’s great evenings of summertime, featuring a spirited group, fun conversations, Irish humor, and Spanky’s Raw Bar. The party is a special time of celebrating connections with Ireland, while supporting non-profit projects across the island of Ireland.
The Ireland Funds is a global philanthropic network established in 1976 to promote and support peace, culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland, and Irish-related causes around the world. With chapters in 12 countries, The Ireland Funds has raised over $600 million for nonprofit organizations in Ireland and beyond, benefiting more than 3,200 different organizations with both financial and non-financial support. Today, The Ireland Funds is an internationally-recognized, global network of chapters that comprises the largest private grant maker for the nonprofit sector in Ireland.
