An on-going tradition of the Lawrence St Patrick's Day Parade Committee is the request for volunteers from our charity beneficiaries and the community to represent the Committee as Queen Candidates. These ladies work extra hard to contact local and regional businesses and organizations to collect donations that are given away as prizes at our Events and contribute to our annual Charity Benefit Auction.

Each year the Parade Committee selects one queen candidate to be a special representative in the pageantry of the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Each of the other candidates also participates in the parade as the Queen's Court. Choosing only one of these young ladies is a difficult task and in no way diminishes the efforts of any of the others or the pride that all we feel in their achievements. Committee members vote for the Queen based upon efforts in obtaining charitable contributions, assisting with the parade activities, and overall personality. This is a very challenging volunteer position and it requires interminable dedication. We were very lucky to find especially hard working young ladies to assist the parade committee. What these ladies have accomplished each year is at the very least remarkable. We cannot thank them enough for their commitment to the committee, the community, and our causes.
