Ticket price lower for Celebrate Erin event

As published in The Erin Advocate

Tickets for the Celebrate Erin volunteer appreciation event have been reduced to $20 per person.

The celebration will be held Saturday, April 12 at the Shamrock Room in Centre 2000, with doors open at 6:30 pm.

Celebrate Erin started last year with more of an emphasis on fundraising for the East Wellington Community Services Food Bank, and tickets were $35. This year there will be stronger emphasis on showcasing volunteers and their projects.

“It will be somewhat simpler,” Councillor John Brennan told Council last week. “We want to make it self-supporting. We have $3,500 in seed money from last year, and we want to leave as much of that intact as possible.”

There will still be a buffet dinner and cash bar, light entertainment and presentation of volunteer awards to individuals.

Tickets now are on sale and can be purchased through the Town of Erin office or through local area organizations including East Wellington Community Services, the Rotary Club, the Optimists Club, the Lions Club and the Trails Committee. More information is available at
