PLUS Company prepares for 22nd annual Wild Irish Breakfast
Thursday, March 7, 2013
NASHUA – The PLUS Company is proud to continue its long-running tradition of providing a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day while raising funds for a cause.
The 22nd annual Wild Irish Breakfast will be held Friday, March 15 at The Radisson Hotel Nashua beginning at 7:30 a.m. This event continues to be one of the largest and longest running St. Patrick’s Day events in New England.
The event celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with good humor, some jesting and an opportunity to make a difference in the community.
The public, agency supporters, politicians and pundits all trade barbs, enjoy a bountiful breakfast, and raise funds for The PLUS Company, a nonprofit agency empowering individuals with developmental disabilities by providing services and supports designed to maximizing individuals’ levels of independence.
Previous speakers of the event have included Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and hockey legend Rick Middleton. This year’s speaker list is guaranteed to continue the time-honored tradition of including state and local politicians who are comfortable taking shots at their colleagues from both sides of the isle.
