Fundraising

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 annaul awards, transportation for highs school bands participating, and a wide variety of other expenses associated with the Parade.
