The York Saint Patrick's Day Parade Committee is pleased to announce the return of the popular "There's Guinness In It!" fundraiser on Thursday, February 28, 2013, from 5:30 to 8pm inside the newly-renovated Central Market York, 34 West Philadelphia Street. A dozen area restaurants and caterers will each create a menu item containing Guinness (an appetizer, entree or dessert), that will be available for sampling.
Tickets are $25 each, and include a sampling from each participating restaurant/caterer, Guinness product samples and novelty item, entry for door prize drawings, and water courtesy of The York Water Company. The evening will also include a silent auction.
Tickets are now available at Bair’s Fried Chicken and JR's Fries (Central Market in downtown York), Central Family Restaurant, Kimman's, and Sunrise Soap Company, and from parade committee members. You may also mail a check, payable to York Saint Patrick's Day Parade, to YSPD Parade, PO Box 1043, York PA 17405-1043. Please include name and email address for confirmation purposes; mail-order tickets will be held at the door. Tickets are limited and must be purchased by February 21; no tickets will be sold at the door.
Proceeds will benefit the 30th Annual York Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, which will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2013, along Market Street in downtown York.
The following restaurants/caterers have confirmed participation: The Accomac Inn, All About Brownies, Bair's Fried Chicken, Busy Bee, Central Family Restaurant, Copper Crust, JRs Fries, Just Cupcakes, Maewyn's, Mezzogiorno, Sharmini's Kitchen, and Simply Soup. Additional restaurants will be listed as contracts are returned. All restaurants are graciously providing food for our event at a fraction of the actual cost.
We sincerely thank Guinness for support in many ways: donating giveaway and silent auction items, advertising space, and Guinness for the restaurants to use in their dishes. Thanks also to The York Water Company for the water station, to Party Belles for decorations, and to Central Market House for hosting us.
