The Runaway Brides are hoping for the "luck of the Irish" for their first 2019 fundraiser, a St Patrick's Day event this Sunday.

The Brides have set a lofty fundraising goal ahead for their 12th year in the SA Variety Bash, aiming to raise $100,000 by the end of July.

For the third year the Brides will hold a St Patrick's Day event at Beer Garden Brewing, beginning at noon and continuing until closing time.

Bride boss Emma Pedler said Beer Garden Brewing had been a great supporter of the Brides and were willing to host the event again this year.

She said they were also making it easier for people to donate this year who might not have cash on them.

"One of the big issues is not a lot of people carry a lot of cash," she said.

"We're going to have a card reader so people can use their card."

People attending will be able to enjoy green 'Lincoln Leprechaun Lager', take part in games and enjoy some live music performed by Steve Murray.

From every pint of larger sold $10 will go towards the Brides who are raising money for Variety, the Children's Charity.

Ms Pedler said they hoped to see at least a couple thousand people attend.

The Brides have plenty planned in the lead up to the Bash in August, including a Lock Ladies Day on March 30, targeted at gathering together women from Lock and surrounding areas.

Ms Pedler said they were encouraged to "bring the party" to Lock and hold an event for women to come together and have a good time.

All this leads up to the 2019 Bash, which will see cars travel from Mawson Lakes to Murray Bridge.
