The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick Glee Club will perform a free concert at Mercy Health – West Hospital Saturday at 2 pm.

Hosted by the Auxiliary of West Hospital, the April 10th concert will take place in the Westwood/Cincinnati hospital’s auditorium and is open to the public.

 

Since the founding of the Friendly Sons in 1771 as a society dedicated to brotherhood, charity and community service, is open to Irish and non-Irish men of goodwill, without regard to ethnic or religious origin. The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick Foundation in Cincinnati, its charitable arm, fosters strong Irish heritage by supporting the hungry and Irish arts.

 

Founded in 1985, the Glee Club now numbers more than 60 members and sings year-round at concerts, events, pubs, nursing homes, wakes, weddings; averaging 50 performances each year. Its repertoire includes a wide array of Irish songs and ballads.

 

The Auxiliary of Mercy Health – West Hospital raises funds for charitable care and capital purchases that help the hospital provide top quality care to the patients it serves. The Auxiliary also awards annual scholarships to talented area students embarking on healthcare careers.

 

There is no charge for Saturday’s concert, but donations are welcome and will benefit Mercy Health – West Hospital. The Auxiliary will provide refreshments and asks that, to ensure an accurate head-count for food, attendees email J. Reinhold at jmreinhold@zoomtown.com with the number in their party.
