Benefiting Shenandoah County Public School District Theater Programs
Update (March 31st): We have concluded our first Irish Film’s event.
Spend a night enjoying some award-winning films from Ireland, where all proceeds will go towards the Shenandoah County Public School District’s Theater Programs. We’ll showcase a film from one of the best production studios in Ireland – Cartoon Saloon.
In addition, we’ll view the “Most Inspiring Short” awarded during the 2017 Boston Irish Film Festival as well as the 1st place festival award winner during the Chicago Irish Film Festival. It hopes to be a night to remember, as well as a night where we’ll raise money for a worthy cause.
