Billy Keenan Fundraiser, May 3-4

Billy Keenan is every Irish American.

The quintessential model father, husband, friend, soldier, teacher, scholar, musician, and proud Irishman… Billy is someone we all know, or will know. He is like everyone of us. He has taught our kids, helped so many of our causes, and sang at our churches, parties and weddings.

In September, Billy had the most unfortunate accident down the Jersey Shore while doing what he loves, surfing. Suffering catastrophic injury to his spinal cord, Billy is unable to use his arms or legs, and requires assistance 24 hours a day.

His friends, family, bandmates, associates, and fellow Irish Americans will not let him down… we will support his family with all our connections, skills, generosity energy, and our love. Billy would be doing it for every one of us…

#KeenanStrong is an organization 100% dedicated to helping Billy and his family. Every penny we collect goes to them… Help us help them!

Impressive Music Lineup for #KeenanStrong Concert Weekend
We are overwhelmed that the biggest Irish bands in NYC jumped right on bill for Billy and the #KeenanStrong Concert Series on May 3-4. The list includes:

  • Broken Banjo Strings
  • Celtic Cross
  • Andy Cooney
  • Cunningham Brothers
  • Girsa
  • Jameson’s Revenge
  • Joanie Madden
  • McLean Avenue
  • The Narrowbacks
  • NYPD Pipes & Drums
  • The Primetime Showband
  • John Reynolds & Margie Mulvihill

And many others are in the works and hopefully will be announced shortly. Mark your calendars for May 3-4.
