Dropkick Murphys to host celebrity bartending benefit

, Staff
The Dropkick Murphys are getting together with some of their famous friends to go behind the bar to serve fans in support of children in Haiti. The celebrity bartending party will take place on Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. at McGreevy’s Third Base Saloon (911 Boylston St.), the Irish pub co-owned by bassist/singer Ken Casey.
Admission to the event, which is being hosted by the band’s new charitable foundation The Claddagh Fund, is $20 and there are plenty of door and raffle prizes planned for throughout the night. Among the celebrities scheduled to serve as McGreevy’s bartenders and servers are: boxing legend Micky Ward, Bruins album/WAAF personality Lyndon Byers, NESN personalities Heidi Watney and Charlie Moore, HGTV personality Taniya Nayak and of course, the Dropkicks Murphys. More celebrities are expected to be added to the final roster. All proceeds will benefit the Hope for Haiti Children’s Center and provide food, medical attention, shelter, emotional support and eventual family placement to the children left orphaned by the tragic earthquakes in Haiti.
The Claddagh Fund is a charity recently established by Dropkick Murphys founder Ken Casey in support of non-profits that champion the causes of children, veterans and those suffering from alcohol and drug addiction. Their Inaugural Event, The Claddagh Fund Skate in the Park, was held in December on the ice at Fenway Park. The event raised over $50,000 for the fund.
