A rocking good time to benefit Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley is planned for St. Patrick's Day at The Oaks in Oakmont.

Doors open for ShamRock-n-Roll at 7:30 p.m. March 17 at the theater at 310 Allegheny River Blvd. The event will feature music by Pittsburgh's JD and the Squires, basket and 50/50 raffles.

General admission is $20 and includes a drink ticket. VIP tickets are $45 and include early entry at 6 p.m., table seating, dinner, drink ticket and meet and greet with the band.

Tickets are on sale at or by calling 888-718-4235.

Animal Protectors is a nonprofit animal shelter in New Kensington that offers help with care and adoption of dogs and cats. Proceeds from the show at the Oaks will be used to renovate a closed school the group recently purchased and plans to move into when the project is complete. Plans for the new shelter will be on display at ShamRock-n-Roll.

More information about the shelter is available at or by calling 724-339-7388.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
