Hundreds of people gather in the south suburbs to help raise money for this year's South Side Irish Parade.

A pre-St. Patrick's Day party was held Saturday evening at "115 Bourbon Street."

Party-goers were treated to beer, a buffet and live entertainment.

All of the money raised will help to offset the cost of the South Side Irish Parade on March 16th.

The parade returned in 2012 after a two-year hiatus with increased security and a zero-tolerance alcohol policy.
