Thank you to all who attended, volunteered, sponsored and supported this year’s event! Check back soon for 2015 event details. 


A charitable way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

The 16th annual UCP “An Irish Evening” was Friday, March 7, 2014, 6 p.m.-10 p.m., featuring Irish and international food and beverage samples from local vendors, $25 general admission tickets, Celtic entertainment, and casual attire (wearin’ of the green is a must!) at The Depot Roundhouse in downtown Huntsville.

UCP’s “An Irish Evening” will again feature live music by Bourbon & Shamrocks, fun and games with the Irish Society of North Alabama, a performance by the Fitness Arts Center Irish step dancers, an extensive silent auction, dance tunes with America’s Party Pros, and more!

In response to our sell-out 2013 event, additional table seating will be added to the Roundhouse for guests and the silent auction will be moved to an event tent adjoining the venue. 

Tickets are $25 per person and include food and beverage samples (one child 12 and under is free with each paid adult ticket). Tickets can be purchased online using PayPal (featured on this page), at UCP Huntsville Centers, by phone at 256-859-4900, and at participating businesses (TBA).

All proceeds from this annual fundraiser directly benefit UCP client services for more than 1,000 North Alabama families affected by a disability.
