The St. Patty’s Beef & Beer Fundraising Event with Chinese Auction will take place on March 15th from 7pm-11pm at Our Lady of Hope Parish Center (Formerly St. Agnes), located at 701 Little Gloucester Road, Blackwood, NJ.

People for the Poor, is an all-volunteer organization which manages and organizes fundraisers whose proceeds go to organizations helping individuals to get a hot meal and a place to sleep. The Connell Family has been actively involved and volunteering since 2006. They have helped PFTP raise nearly $295,000 since its inception in 2004.
"The Connell Family has been a true friend to People for the Poor. Their commitment to our organization has been beyond belief. Not only has their financial support been amazing, but they are there when we need help setting up tables, running errands, sharing ideas and also lending an ear. We would not be as successful as we are without their unwavering help. They truly are friends to the "invisible society" - the homeless and hungry," said People for the Poor's founder, Caroline Scherrer.
