“Irish Wave,” Darke County Center for the Arts fundraising party celebrating St. Patrick's Day, will feature Irish-themed food, Irish music, and craft beers from Cincinnati's Mt. Carmel Brewery. The event is scheduled for Friday, March 8 at Turtle Creek Golf Club, 6545 U.S. Route 36 East, Greenville. “DCCA wanted to schedule a festive event coinciding with the Irish holiday; we've worked with Turtle Creek to plan a delectable menu, with the golf club's distributor to bring in outstanding beer selections, and have booked fun-loving, talented musicians to add the crowning touch to what we believe will be a great party,” said DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan. “Irish Wave” opens at 6:30 p.m.

The buffet menu provided by the kitchen at Turtle Creek includes Irish potatoes, Irish rarebit on bread, corned beef bruschetta, Guinness-battered onion, bacon and cabbage balls, crab cakes with roasted red pepper sauce, and smoked salmon on Irish soda bread. Bottled beers to be tasted include Amber Ale, Blonde Ale, Nut Brown Ale, India Pale Ale, and Stout; additionally, Scotsman Ale, featuring a lightly smoked flavor balanced by cherry wood, will be available on draft. Eight tastes and a commemorative beer glass are included in the price of admission; additionally, door prizes will be awarded.

Music will be provided by Brigid's Cross, a duo who sing and play an eclectic selection of Irish music ranging from traditional to contemporary. The Brigid's Cross performance is made possible by the sponsorship of Second National Bank, and Edward Jones Investment representatives Dave Connelly, Steve Litchfield, Todd Subler, and Bill Wolke, and Andria Haworth, as well as Tom and Suzie Brown, and Zechar-Bailey Funeral Home.

Tickets for “Irish Wave” are $35, and can be purchased at Turtle Creek Golf Club or by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or on-line at
