Tickets are on sale now for Catholic Charities 15th Annual Celebration, presented by Providence Health & Services. The event will take place on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2012, at the Oregon Convention Center, beginning at 6 p.m. This annual event is Catholic Charities sole fundraising event and supports more than one-third of Catholic Charities annual operating budget.

The evening will be hosted by Archbishop of Portland Reverend John G. Vlazny and Catholic Charities Executive Director Pietro Ferrari, along with Honorary Chairpersons Mark and Leslie Ganz, and Chairpersons Chris and Kimra Corrado.

Guests will have the opportunity to learn more about the work of Catholic Charities in their community while a St. Patrick’s Day party ensues—complete with green beer, festive fare and the music of St. James’ Gate.

Tickets to the Annual Celebration are $150. For tickets or more information, call Kirsten Goetz at 503-688-2621. Net proceeds from the event directly benefit the programs of Catholic Charities in the Portland metropolitan area.
