La Crosse, WI – The La Crosse-Bantry Friendship Association (LBFA) would like to invite everyone to the Coulee Hoolie Ceili (pronounced KAY-lee). This unique Irish celebration will include music, dance, food and fun. Houghton’s Hooligans will provide a backdrop to the evening with traditional Irish music while caller Tim Jenkins calls a variety of Irish set dances, complete with instruction so everyone can join in. Dublin Square will provide a bit of Irish cuisine and there will be a cash bar and silent auction. The event will benefit New Horizons in La Crosse and the West Cork Women Against Violence in our sister city, Bantry Ireland. Unfortunately, violence against women is an international problem. Many of the same concerns being dealt with right here in La Crosse are being faced around the world, including Ireland. Both organizations are doing what they can to battle this issue in their respective communities. LBFA wants to help raise awareness of these issues, raise funds for the fight against them and bring a little Irish celebration to La Crosse. The Coulee Hoolie Ceili will include music, Irish set dancing (lessons included), silent auction, cash bar and Irish cuisine.
Silent auction items to include Celtic Woman Concert Tickets, Brewers Tickets, YMCA Gift Certificates, Nicklaus Martial Arts America Gift Certificates, Kwik Trip Gift cards, Local Dining Certificates, Gift Baskets and more!
