In 1980, the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee issued a symbol of unity, support and pride in Cleveland's Irish Community – the Shamrock Pin. The Shamrock Pin, issued annually with the current year inside of the shamrock, visibly demonstrates the community's support, both financially and in spirit, of Cleveland's largest annual event - the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Proceeds from the distribution of the Shamrock Pin fund the St. Patrick's Day Parade – the annual awards, transportation for highs school bands participating, and a wide variety of other expenses associated with the Parade. Shamrock Pins are available for a donation of $10 each.
Contributors of $25 to the St. Patrick's Day Parade are designated as "Parade Guarantors". The name of Guarantors are listed in the 2018 Parade Booklet. To be included in the Parade Booklet, donations must be received by March 1, 2018. Guarantors receive a distinctive Parade Guarantor Sash and are invited to march in a Special Unit at the head of the Parade.
The St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee is a 501(C)(3) corporation. All contributions are tax deductible. For more information on the Shamrock Pins and Parade Guarantors please contact:
