Inaugural Hoboken Guards Dinner Dance set to light up the Mile Square City

by David Cosgrove on December 4, 2014

The birthplace of baseball and Frank Sinatra will host the best party of the holiday season on Saturday, December 13 when the Hoboken Guards Hurling Club come together for an exciting fundraiser.

Area residents, local and state community organizations are all encouraged to join our growing community sports club for what will be a fun festive night of live music, open bar and full buffet at the Hoboken Elks Lodge (1005 Washington St).

Our club heads into our fifth year of existence in 2015, and we can’t operate without the support of residents of Hoboken and the greater New Jersey and New York area.

Hurling is a centuries old field sport known for being the “fastest game on grass” and for being a pre-cursor to ice and field hockey. It is now experiencing massive growth across all continents and the US.

The Hoboken Guards take their name from the Kenmare Guards of Kerry who played a match in Hoboken on St. Patrick’s Day in 1858.

The McLean Avenue Band will headline the event which will also include a 50/50 raffle, player awards and the launch of Hoboken Camogie.

We hope you will join us for what is shaping up to be a special night as we continue spreading the greatest game on earth – and Irish culture with it – to the Garden State!

Hoboken is a short car, train or bus ride from most municipalities in central and Northern NJ, conveniently connected to both bus and PATH train lines. Please click here for the Hoboken Elks Lodge address/map.
