Close to 250 people gathered in the International Room at Arlington Park on Sunday, September 23, at the 5th Annual Run for the Shamrocks event, benefitting the students of Saint Patrick High School through the Financial Assistance Program. The event netted $100,000 which included $41,000 from the Live Financial Aid Appeal.
