Irish Humorist Entertains at St. Patrick’s Fundraiser

Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools

The Archbishop’s St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, hosted by  Archbishop Leonard P. Blair and the Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools (FACS), has become an annual tradition featuring great food, Irish-themed entertainment and inspiring speakers.

This year’s breakfast will be held on Friday, March 15th at Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.  Networking begins at 7:00.a.m. with coffee, tea and juice service.

Enjoy a fun-filled morning with guest speaker Conor Cunneen, an award-winning Irish humorist, motivational speaker and author.

Autographed copies of his book “For the Love of Being Irish,” will be available for sale at the breakfast.  Advance purchases can be made by contacting FACS.

Come celebrate with us while giving children the opportunity for an exceptional academic education. Net proceeds from the breakfast will benefit students attending Catholic schools in Hartford, Litchfield and New Haven Counties.

FACS has awarded over $615,000 in scholarships and grants for Academic Year 2018-2019, not only from this event, but also from other scholarship funds held by the Foundation.

For over thirty-six years, FACS has been able to make scholarships possible through generous donors, businesses, planned gifts, and special events.
