The AOH PA State Board is pleased to announce again that the AOH PA State President’s Dinner is scheduled to be held on Saturday, May 8, 2021 in Pittsburgh. It will be hosted by President Pat O’Brien’s home Division 4 at the Doubletree Hotel in Green Tree, near Pittsburgh.
The hotel has been the site of many State Conventions and other Hibernian affairs over the years, so many will be familiar with it.
Room rates are $99 per night and are available under our room block of “AOH”. Rates are valid for both Friday and Saturday night.
Please call the Doubletree Hotel direct dial local number @ 412 922-8400. Don’t forget to ask for the “AOH” room block of $99.00.
Of course, we remain keenly aware of how the COVID-19 pandemic may influence our plans. We are hopeful that the vaccine rollout will improve over the next few months to allow us to resume some semblance of normal, or semi-normal, activity. If the Covid situation does not improve adequately, and/or our hotel/dinner reservations are significantly insufficient, we will decide on
April 1 whether to hold the event or develop an alternative plan. We will keep you informed accordingly. If refunds are required, we will provide them, of course.
For AOH members, a sandwich buffet will be provided on Saturday at noon in our meeting conference room, prior to the State Board meeting convening at 1:00 pm. We anticipate that the Board meeting will end at or before 4:00 pm.
At 5:00 pm, we will host a Mass in a nearby ballroom, and of course all banquet attendees are welcome. Following the Mass, a cocktail hour will begin at 6:00 pm in the main ballroom where the dinner will be held.
At the entrance doors or at the tables, each attendee will receive a complimentary “drink ticket” which can be used at the portable bars in the ballroom for a soft drink, white or red wine, or bottled beer. Additionally, premium whiskey, such as Tullamore Dew, Jamison’s, etc will be available at a cash price of $9.00. For the remainder of the evening, all beverages - alcoholic or otherwise - are available as a cash bar. Please understand that with the conservative admission price, our committee could not afford additional complimentary drink tickets.
Admission to the banquet is priced at $40 per person. Please contact Rich O’Malley either via email at or by phone at 412-401-3945 for banquet reservations, and keep in mind our “go-no go” deadline of April 1st - so don’t wait!!
The sit-down dinner will be served at 7:00 pm, and our program will begin as dinner wraps up. Following dinner, live Irish entertainment will continue until 11:00 pm.
Dinner will consist of one of the entrees listed below. Please specify which entree you would like when you make your banquet reservation!
Chicken Milanese - Parmesan Crust, Lemon Caper Cream Sauce
Grilled Salmon - Garlic, Shallots, Tomatoes, Chardonnay, Fine Herbs
Braised Beef Short Ribs - Osso Bucco Style
Mixed Greens Salad, Balsamic & Ranch Dressings on the table
Entrees served with: Assorted Rolls & Butter, Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes & Seasonal Vegetables
Dessert: Cheesecake with Strawberry Sauce
Includes Coffee, Hot & Iced Tea
AOH State Executive Officers should dress in “black tie” with medallions. All other attendees should follow a dress code of “black-tie optional, otherwise appropriate business attire”.
The expenses for the event are greater than the $40 we are requesting for the admission price, therefore we are running a fundraiser called “7 Days in May”.
Tickets will cost 20.00 and will each have two Pa. Lottery, 7pm Pick 3 numbers. The ticket will be active for 7 days, starting Sunday May 2, 2021 through May 8, 2021. The winning number for each day will be as follows:
Sunday, May 2, 2021--------------250.00
Monday, May 3, 2021--------------300.00
Tuesday, May 4, 2021-------------350.00
Wednesday, May 5, 2021---------400.00
Thursday, May 6, 2021-------------450.00
Friday, May 7, 2021-----------------500,00
Saturday, May 8, 2021------------2,000.00
PLEASE help us to raise the additionally needed funds to pay the remainder of the event expenses. To purchase raffle tickets, please either contact Rich O’Malley with his information above, or contact Division 4 President Rick Duffy at 412-551-0020.
God bless you all and keep you safe as we plan and pray for a return to our normal activities in the near future. On behalf of the AOH PA State Board and Allegheny AOH Division 4 and in Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity,
Brother and Sister Hibernians,
We are now less then a month away from finding out who the winner of the 50/50 raffle will be to benefit our hospitality room at the upcoming State Convention. Many thanks to all that have purchased a ticket or two. Many thanks also to those who have taken a bunch of tickets to sell. If you have tickets that you have sold, please get ahold of me to make arrangements to get the stubs and money from you. If you have tickets that you know you may not be able to sell, please let me know ASAP so we can get them back from you and get them sold in other parts of the State.
As of this writing we have half of the 500 tickets paid for (money is in the bank). I’m sure a lot of the tickets that are still out on the street are sold; we just need them turned in. We do have about 30 tickets that need to get out on the street and sold. If you would like some tickets for your Division or County Board or just to sell to family members, co-workers, etc. please let me know. Let’s get these tickets sold and have a great fundraiser for the winner and for the hospitality room. Remember, the only money that will be used to fund the room will be the money raised from this fundraiser.
