Bono to be guest of honor at AIF New York gala dinner

The American Ireland Fund’s annual New York spring gala should easily be a sell-out this year, as Bono will be the special guest of honor.

The 35th annual dinner, set for Thursday, May 6, will take place at The Tent at Lincoln Center.Always one of the best nights on the Irish American social calendar,this year’s gala should be extra-special given the presence of Bono,one of the world’s most famous humanitarians . . . and, of course, rockstars.

The desire to provide music education to Irish schoolchildren brought U2and the AIF together last year. Irish kids don’t learn music as a coresubject in school, unlike students in most other parts of the world. In2009, the worldwide Ireland Funds and U2 committed $10 million to bringmusic education to Irish schools, and U2 so far have provided $7million in funding.

The New York dinner will undoubtedly help to provide a healthy chunk offinancing for the worthy goal, so mark your calendar! For moreinformation on the dinner, visit The Ireland Funds : The global Irish making a difference together.
