The Airdrie Food Bank is having one of its biggest annual fundraisers after a three-year hiatus.

Christine Taylor, the food bank's Marketing Communications Manager, said they are excitedly anticipating the Annual Shamrock Shimmy's return to the Town and Country on March 11.

"We're very excited. It's one of our two signature events and our largest fundraiser of the year. So, not having had it for the past three years has been difficult; everybody wants to go because it's fun."

Additionally, the food bank is thrilled to be able to bring the community together once more and expects the event will be a tremendous success,

"The purpose is to help raise money for the food bank and our community. But it's also a great way for community members and business groups to get together and hang out. We've seen lots of really neat things happen at these events where people get together with different businesses and come together to help us so, it's just a lot of fun, and it's one night to help your community."

Although tickets aren't currently available, they will be shortly on their WEBSITE. As the event's name suggests, the evening will feature a St. Patrick's theme, dinner, dance, a live auction, lots of fun, a midnight snack, and music are all planned for the evening.

If any businesses or individuals have something they'd be willing to donate for the live and silent auctions, they are still hoping to get more items. You can also get in touch with them HERE, through their website or their social media pages.
