Want to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day while contributing to a good cause?
This Sunday at 5 p.m., the South San Francisco Police Association is holding its 11th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef and Cabbage Fundraiser.
Held at the South San Francisco Conference Center, the event can accommodate upwards of 800 people, according to Officer Matt McNichol. There are still about 200 spots left.
The dinner fundraises for the Survivor Fund of the South San Francisco Police Association, which provide a life insurance policy for every member. The fundraisers have been sufficient to cover the full cost every year, said McNichol.
The fundraiser consists of an authentic corned beef and cabbage dinner along with Irish dancing by family members of the Police Association.
"It's a fun event for the whole family," said McNichol.
After the dinner, the Police Association will hold a raffle where guests can win a number of prizes from local businesses including gift certificates, hotel stays, decorations and other prizes.
There will also be a silent auction hosted by Man Cave Memorabilia.
Tickets are $30 a pop, and can be purchased at the South San Francisco Police Department (33 Arroyo Drive, Suite C) or by contacting Elaine Garbarino at (650) 872-1143.
