Kell’s Irish Pub will kick off its annual benefit for Northeast Portland’s Center for Medically Fragile Children at Providence Child Center at 9 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 28.
The event, at 112 S.W. Second Ave., involves patrons “sending cash to the ceiling” at Kells until the annual “sweep” prior to St. Patrick’s Day.
Last year, $9,000 was collected. Kells matches the total each year, which amounted to a record $18,000 last year, according to a Providence spokesperson.
Since the first “green rain” in 1995, the event has raised more than $193,000.
