Green & Good Cheer For Community Pharmacy


The luck of the Irish and the generosity of all take hold in the 10th Annual St. Vincent DePaul Society fundraising event.  Proceeds of the St. Patrick's Day event at Enoch's Irish Pub support the St. Vincent De Paul Community Pharmacy.

"The pharmacy provides medicine and medical supplies to those who simply cannot afford some basic prescriptions and products," says society member Jo Ann Crone.  "This event provides much needed support to operate the pharmacy year-round."

Doyle Jeter says the evening is filled with Irish food, music, and wonderful prizes.  "Commemorative t-shirts are once again available and a raffle ticket comes with the purchase of a shirt.  It's a very popular item every year."  

Jeter says the fundraiser is something he looks forward you every March 17th.  "It really has the spirit of the feast day of St. Patrick.  The work in support of the pharmacy turned us around and gave us a new focus in honoring the day."
