The 2000 American Celtic Ball, sponsored by the Ireland Chamber of Commerce in the U.S., will take place on Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, ICCUSA president and CEO Maurice A. Buckley has announced.
The black tie dinner dance, which celebrates the 12th anniversary of the founding of the Ireland Chamber, will honor Thomas J. Moran, president-CEO of Mutual of America; Thomas P. Mulcahy, group chief executive of Allied Irish Bank; Alfred E. Smith IV, managing director of Hunter Specialists, LLC, and Chris DeBurgh, internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter.
"A portion of the receipts from the American Celtic ball will be donated to the Special Olympics World Games, to be held in Ireland in 2003, the first time this wonderful project will take place outside the U.S," Buckley said.
Buckley pointed out that the Special Olympics program, founded in 1968, offers year-round sports training and athletic competitions for more than one million developmentally challenged children and adults.
"Since we began over a decade ago," Buckley said, "the American Celtic ball has become the premier Irish American business and social event of the year. The evening offers splendid dining and dancing along with outstanding entertainment, enjoyed by nearly a thousand men and women."
