Bay Ridge St. Patrick’s Day Parade was founded in 1993 with the purpose of fostering, promoting and celebrating the cultural and historical contribution of Irish and Irish-American individuals within Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

 

The Committee is pleased to announce that in 2015 we introduced the Bay Ridge St. Patrick Parade Education Fund to support local Catholic Education. The program offers merit-based awards to recognize the personal and educational achievements, along with participation in community-related service activities of 8th grade students currently attending the five local Catholic Academies with plans to attend a Catholic High School in the Fall.

 

After promoting the Education Fund throughout the 2015 parade season, we were able to garner matching funds. As a result, two students chosen by their respective school received the $1,000 grant. We would like to acknowledge the generous donors in our inaugural year:

 

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy of Brooklyn - Robert and Judy Rose in honor of their children Robert Rose ‘81 and Kelly Rose-Watters ‘84.

Holy Angels Catholic Academy - Marie Moloney in memory of her husband John J. Moloney II ‘35 and her son John J. Moloney III ‘65.

St. Ephrem School - The Canny Brothers Band.

St. Patrick Catholic Academy - Approved Oil, Inc.

St. Anselm Catholic Academy - Mary Clavin in honor of her children Joseph Clavin ‘99, Matthew Clavin ‘00, Stephen Clavin ‘04 and Amy Clavin ‘09.

 

The first recipients of our Education Fund in 2015:

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy: Ashley Cepeda & Theresa Davidson

Holy Angels Catholic Academy: Emily Campbell & Conor Friedle

St. Anselm Catholic Academy: Maria Fallah & Michael Fannon

In 2016, through the Committee's fundraising efforts and generous matching funds, we were able to award another $10,000 to deserving local students.  We would like to acknowledge the generous donors in our second year -  THANK YOU!!
