Fund Raising for local charities


Our Fund Raising Activities

The Friends of the Fox Organization and and FISH Food Pantry will receive all the funds from the Mary's Shamrock sale again during 2019. Parade volunteers helped to make 300 shamrocks and Mary's Shamrocks is donating over 1000 more shamrocks to  town businesses who are willing to sell them. Last year Mary's shamrocks sparkled all over East and West Dundee... We hope to shine even brighter this year. Visit often, sign your name. Good luck will be yours if you do, and our sincere gratitude. 


Tradition of helping the community

Year after year, Thom's Parade and fundraising efforts have given back thousands of dollars to the two very deserving organizations in our community. The McNamee family and McNamee Foundation will continue this tradition in 2019. 


Who will win the coveted SHAMROCK Trophy?

We love the people of East Dundee!    During 2018, local establishments sold our shamrocks and raised over one thousand dollars! Businesses then displayed shamrocks on their walls sharing their generous spirit. The competition to display the most shamrocks was a fun way to support the community, and engaged the entire Dundee Area. THANK YOU A MILLION THANK YOU +S.
