Knights of Columbus 9184 Foothills Council presented Birthright of Greenville with a check for $23,000 to help fund their ongoing work supporting women experiencing unplanned pregnancies.

The charitable Catholic fraternal organization hosted their second “Luck of the Irish” Casino Night in Greer.

Attendees enjoyed an evening of casino-style games, a silent and a spirited live auction, food and fun.

”It has truly been a privilege to work with Birthright,” said event director Greg Pirochta. “It is such a worthy organization, reaching out and supporting women and babies in our community in such a personal and loving way. This event has really helped our council become more connected to their needs.”

Birthright of Greenville continues their 36-year mission offering loving alternatives to abortion for women in crisis.

“Birthright of Greenville is so very grateful for the support of the Knights of Columbus Foothills Council 9184 through the ‘Luck of the Irish’ fundraiser,” said Birthright of Greenville Director Meg Kocher. “The Knights hard work and dedication will assist Birthright in our mission to help many women facing unplanned pregnancies with loving alternatives to abortion.”

The Knights of Columbus support Birthright as part of their ongoing Culture of Life initiatives.

The council looks forward to offering an expanded evening of Irish themed Las Vegas style games, music and fun.

The 2017 event is scheduled for March 25 at the Cannon Centre in downtown Greer.
