Help These Gals “Bust a Move” to becoming the Worlds Top Irish Dancer!



You don’t have to be to be part of the Fighting Irish to support Sarah Griffin and Melanie Pilon on their quest to become the Worlds top Irish dancer. But you do need to come out Saturday evening September 12– 9-12 pm to St. James Pub in Carleton Place to help them make their way to Ireland in October to fulfill their dreams. Come help them go to “The Big Jig!”


You could also win this beautiful stain glass cross while supporting Granary employee Sarah Griffin on her quest to becoming the worlds top Irish dancer this October in Ireland. Tickets 10$ or 3/20$


Let’s get Irish jiggy with it and support these gals. See you Saturday!


A letter by Sarah and Michelle:

Hey everyone!
As some of you may know, Michelle Pion and I will be competing at the All Ireland Irish Dance Championships this coming October in Killarney, Ireland. We finally have the opportunity to compete where it all started! Although this is a tremendous blessing, we are looking for some help in raising funds for our trip over to the motherland!

We have managed to organize, with the generous help from our families and friends, two amazing raffles:

The first is a beautiful stained glass piece made by the talented Tom Griffin (aka my dad) worth over $800.
Tickets: 1 for $10 or 3 for $20

The second is the popular and returning, 12 bottles of fine wine gift basket, a value of over $200
Tickets: 1 for $5 or 3 $10

Your support would be greatly appreciated as this is a once in lifetime opportunity for us and a dream come true! Please message me for details.
We will also be hosting a night of Celtic music and dance in Carleton Place, Ontario just outside of Ottawa, on Saturday September 12th. We would love to see anyone who is able to make it out for a good time and cause and (maybe) a couple of drinks! Tickets available through myself and Michelle!
