Party for the Parade

Pub crawl brought in the bucks


NEW HAVEN - The Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee recently received a check from the management of several New Haven restaurants that participated in the “Save the Parade” Pub Crawl. Through efforts by Damian Cashman, manager of the New Haven Playwright and Colin O’Toole, manager of Christy’s on Orange, and other New Haven restaurant owners/managers, the pub crawl raised a $11,825.00 donation for the 2009 parade to help offset the cost of police overtime.
