The RIAA hosted its first fundraising event on Friday, November 3rd 2017 at the Rutherford Elks Lodge #547.
The event was deemed a huge success with a full house and live entertainment provided by cover band Ridgemont High and the widely known NJ Essex County Emerald Society Pipes & Drums.
We had the pleasure to have our 2017 dignitaries present in Grand Marshal Mr. Thomas Flynn, Deputy Grand Marshal Mr. Tony Bruton, and Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Mr. Michael Keane.
Another cause for celebration at our first fundraiser was to honor the inaugural Rutherford Irish Member(s) of the Year! Given the recent inception of our organization, the 2017 Member(s) of the Year were awarded to two outstanding individuals for their tireless contributions to our success thus far. Congratulations Mrs. Deborah O'Neill, Chairwoman of Fundraising, and Mr. Joe Kelly, Chairman of Membership.
Please save the date of January 12th for our next fundraising event! More to come...
