TIM ROONEY JR. EMPIRE CITY CASINO GENERAL COUNSEL,
NAMED GRAND MARSHAL FOR YONKERS ST. PATRICK'S DAY PARADE

YONKERS, NY, Thursday, February 12, 2015--Tim Rooney, Jr., General Counsel at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway, has been selected 2015 Grand Marshal for the 60th Annual Yonkers St. Patrick's Day Parade , which takes place on McLean Avenue on Saturday, March 21.

"It's quite an honor to be chosen to serve as Grand Marshal," said Rooney. "With our family's Irish heritage and long association with the City of Yonkers, it will be a special day for me, and the entire Rooney Family."

In 2014 the South Broadway St. Patrick's Day Parade merged with the McLean Avenue Merchant's Association St. Patrick's Day Parade. This combination began a new era for Yonkers in honoring our Irish heritage, contributions and Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland and the Archdiocese of New York,. The official installation of Mr. Rooney as Grand Marshal and the Aides for the 2015 Parade will take place on Saturday, March 7, at a gala celebration of the 'Changing of the Sash' in the Good Time Room at the Empire City Casino at 7:30 p.m.

The Parade will be underway on March 21 following a Mass at St. Barnabas High School Chapel on McLean Avenue, when marchers step off at 1:00 p.m. on McLean Avenue west of Bronx River Road. Tim is the son of casino and raceway president and CEO Timothy J. Rooney, Sr.
