Sen. Sal DiDomenico will once again be hosting the Annual DiDomenico Foundation St. Patrick’s Day Celebration on Friday, March 8, beginning at 6:30 p.m., at the Bunker Hill Knights of Columbus in Charlestown.

In addition to a traditional Irish dinner, the night will include Irish music by Devri Boston, step dancers, bag pipers, videos by elected officials and the annual presentation of the Golden Shamrock Award to a community leader.
More than 75 federal, state, and local elected officials are also expected to attend and several of them will try their favorite St. Patrick’s Day jokes. A who’s who list of Massachusetts political figures will be joining the festivities including Gov. Charlie Baker, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, State Treasurer Deb Goldberg, Attorney General Maura Healey, State Auditor Suzanne Bump, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Cambridge Mayor Marc McGovern, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachel Rollins, Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan, Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins, Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, and many more.
There will also be a special surprise guest as well.
