Fighter of the Night at Amateur Fight Night 2022 #1 at Irish Center SF

On April 16, 2022, at Irish Center SF, Gabe "G MANZ" Manzanares took home a big win over Manny Velasquez. Gabe was also voted "Fighter of the Night," plus his bout was declared "Fight of the Night" in Gabe's boxing debut.

Gabe is a San Francisco native and is an assistant football coach and alumnus of St. Ignatius College Prep in SF. He brought a huge contingent of family and fans to the Irish Center for his triumph.

Gabe's video shows the energy in the building on April 16, with the St. Francis room and Members room used as warm-up areas, and Wawona Gates as a place where boxing families met with fighters after wins & losses.

Congrats to Gabe on an impressive debut!

“Steps Of Freedom” documentary tells for the first time the extraordinary story of how Irish dance developed over centuries from a traditional dance of the Irish people to become the global phenomenon it is today, attracting millions of viewers and dancers throughout the world.

The documentary features stunning original performances by some of the greatest Irish dance practitioners of the present day and a wealth of archive materials, including films, photographs, and witness accounts revealing how Irish dance has been practiced through history. There is a strong American current running throughout the story as we show how the Irish diaspora played a pivotal part in shaping the form particularly during the last century.

The United Irish Cultural Center is the Co-Presenter of the film.

400+ patrons celebrated at the Irish Center SF after the San Francisco "Nepal Day" Parade on Sat, April 9 , 2022. Sound familiar?

Imagine a dynamic, digital sculpture hanging in the volumetric space of the Lobby, weaving together the past, present, and future of Irish culture and catching the attention of all those outside.

This vibrant chandelier is reactive, responsive, and programmable, using innovative digital technology to celebrate the continued vibrancy of the culture and community.

As visitors pass beneath, the chandelier reacts to their presence, changing its color and intensity, welcoming them into the space. This feature can also be programmed to change it’s visual output to highlight events at UICC, significant holidays, and even act as a realtime-feed for the world inside and outside the center, using data to visualize Irish music, sport, performance, and art events happening within San Francisco and around the world.
