St. Patty's Day Bash at Thronateeska

March 16, 2007

Albany -- Those who came out to the Thronateeska Heritage Center Friday night were seeing green, and a real live leprechaun.

It was the St. Paddy's Bash to benefit Theatre Albany. The event featured tasty irish treats, live band Keltic Kudzu, even a real life leprechaun sitting atop a pot of gold.

Those who came say the Irish beer and wine tasting was quite the cultural experience.

"This has actually been really good for me. My husband has an Irish background, and I don't. It's a different taste, something I probably wouldn't have tasted otherwise. So it's been real good," said Linda Gilbreath.

All the proceeds of the event benefit Theatre Albany. It's one of two annual fundraisers for the non-profit theatre.
