The Maovember closing party at Paddy O’Shea’s is a fun annual tradition and this year was no exception. The party featured Jameson pickleback shots inside and hockey shots outside courtesy of the Beijing International Ice Hockey guys, two bands, The Reprobates and The Soops, and a draw in which everyone who bought a pin won a prize, including bottles of wine, Paddy O’Shea’s merchandise, and more.
With representatives Tom Stader from Library Project and John Bison from Bread of Life Bakery on hand to receive ceremonial checks, it was a good way to wind down this year’s campaign.
The pickleback bar, games and donations raised 元2226. The draw, in which everyone bought a pin, raised 元1500. That meant 元3726 and a nice addition to this year’s Maovember total.
