The Blarney Bash is back thanks to the Dublin Women's Club.

Dublin City Council voted to stop funding the Blarney Bash in 2007, but the Dublin Women's Club will hold an event from 7:30 to 11 p.m. March 10 at the Dublin Embassy Suites.

When hosted by the city, the Blarney Bash was held after the St. Patrick's Day parade and featured Irish bands.

The event hosted by the Dublin Women's Club will be a little different.

"We wanted something to do at night (after the parade)," event chair Deb Obert said.

The new Blarney Bash will include a DJ, cash bar, appetizers and dancing.

"We're hoping this will be the first annual Blarney Bash at the Dublin Embassy Suites in the atrium. It'll be casual. You can wear your parade stuff," said Obert, who added she's working to get Irish dancers and a bagpipe player.

A raffle also will be held, and Obert said no one would walk away empty-handed.

"The raffle bag is $20, but everyone will win something," she said. "We got donations from local vendors and businesses and restaurants. There will be something in your pot of gold. The Diamond Cellar is also donating something for the raffle."

The Blarney Bash will be a fundraiser for the Dublin Women's Club.

"When we're raising funds, it's for all of our philanthropic efforts," Obert said, noting that the organization tries to give money locally. "We have education grants that usually go to high schools. We also do scholarships for high school students. We also do family needs, if someone needs help with a medical or gas bill. It's Dublin people that have a need. The funds go back to Dublin."

Tickets to the Blarney Bash are $25 for an individual or $40 for a couple. Tickets can be purchased online at Attendees must be 21 or older.
