STAMFORD—This year, Stamford Police Sergeant Patrick Loughran will be leading the Stamford St. Patrick’s Day Parade as Grand Marshal. In tribute to Patrick’s service to the community, the Irish American Cultural Society of Stamford (IACSOS) will be donating ten Grand Marshal’s Dinner tickets to Stamford-based first responders.
The Grand Marshal’s Dinner will be held on Friday, March 3 at Serafina at the Italian Center, 1620 Newfield Ave, Stamford, beginning at 6 pm.
Donated ticket recipients will be selected via raffle. Stamford-based first responders will be eligible to receive one donated ticket each. Each ticket is valued at $150. Those who are interested should e-mail email@example.com with their request to participate, indicating their full name, mailing address and first-responder affiliation (i.e., EMT, firefighter, paramedic, police). Requests should be made by Friday, February 17 at 6pm.
Individuals may submit on behalf of themselves or another person, however only one submission per person will be honored. Winners’ active participation as Stamford-based first responders will be verified. Winners will be notified by Sunday, February 19.
2023 marks the 28th anniversary of the parade, which will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at 2 pm in downtown Stamford. With participation from more than 80 community marching units, pipe bands, dancers and school organizations, the parade is Stamford’s premier spring event and is the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Fairfield County.
