Even though our 2018 event is over, you can still donate!
The Detroit United Irish Society invites you to become a sponsor of the 59th annual Queen of the Detroit United Irish Societies (QDUIS).
The Queen of the Detroit United Irish Societies (formerly known as the Maid of Erin) began in 1959. It is a scholarship competition for young women of Irish descent with the top prize including a trip to Ireland. This competition helps to educate the next generation about their Irish heritage, provide leadership opportunities, and empower young women in the Michigan community. Over the years the competition has grown – and it is our hope that with your support it will continue to grow.
Your sponsorship will help assure the success of the Queen of the Detroit United Irish Society program and competition.
