As St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated around the world, The Worldwide Ireland Funds held events in 13 cities across 5 countries attended by over 6,000 supporters to raise money for their Promising Ireland Campaign to assist Irish charities. Susan Davis served as co-chair for the National Gala event, held in Washington, DC on March 19, 2012.

U.S. Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr. and U.S. Congressman Paul D. Ryan received the 2012 American Ireland Fund Leadership Awards for representing Irish and Irish American interests in the course of their public service.
