March 2, 2015 – Lake Worth, Florida – Get ready to paint the town green! On Sunday, March 15, 2015, the 9th Annual St. Patrick’s Charity Parade and Festival march into downtown Lake Worth, Florida.
Benefiting 501(C)3 non-profit, Wheels For Kids, this St. Patrick’s Parade and Festival has quickly grown into one of Lake Worth’s largest and most anticipated events, attracting spectators to the streets of downtown Lake Avenue for a one-of-a-kind celebration of all things Irish. The festival which begins at 11AM will be highlighted by a colorful parade, kid’s carnival, 5 live bands and scrumptious food and beverages from area restaurants including Brogues Down Under and Dave’s Last Resort.
At 11AM, 11 year old, Calie Jackson will be presented his customized Convaid Cruiser valued at $3,000 from Wheels For Kids at the parade. A student at Pembroke Lakes Elementary School, Calie was born with global developmental delays and is currently in a wheelchair which is very worn out, and not supportive enough for his growing body. “When we heard about Calie for the first time, we knew he was the perfect candidate for us and we needed to help him,” says Denise Roeser, Founder and President of Wheels for Kids. “We are happy to welcome Calie to the Wheels for Kids family” Roeser continues.
The festival is completely free to enjoy while area restaurants will serve food and beverages with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Wheels for Kids.
