Every year, the O'Connor Creevy Family hosts Dudefest, a benefit for Misericordia. Dudefest's primary goal is to support the place that enriches the lives of more than 500 children and adults who call Misericordia home. All proceeds from the event go directly to Misericordia.
Misericordia provides housing; meaningful jobs; physical and occupational therapy; and a genuine social life for people with mild to profound developmental disabilities from all racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds.
Our sister and cousin, Bree (the Dude), has been at Misericordia since 2010 and she loves her home. Misericordia is an incredibly well-kept, well-cared-for place that provides respect and kindness to everyone who lives there.

Misericordia is an incredibly well-kept, well-cared-for place that provides respect and kindness to everyone who lives there. And the way to keep it going is through support. Your donation is truly appreciated!

If you aren't able to make it this year and find yourself in a position to give a donation in any amount, it is greatly appreciated—and truly makes an impact.
Dear Greatest People Ever (aka Dudefesters),
We've decided to hold off on this year's Dudefest. Just too many unknowns with Delta.
We love you. And we really really want to see you. And we really really really want to party like maniacs with you. When will we get to? We hope and believe—at some point in the not-so-distant future.
It was our hope to make this the biggest year ever, in terms of what we're able to give to Misericordia. Maybe that's still possible....
Dudefest is about getting funds to Misericordia. 100% of Dudefest profits go toward Misericordia’s care and support for the people who live there.
To keep our pledge to Misericordia—
We’re doing a donation drive: 50k by midnight August 28th
Can we reach that goal?!
If you’re able to make a donation—amazing.
All recent 2021 donations will count toward the drive.
AND our auction is the sweetest ever. Cocktail parties, Bears tickets, Dream cakes + more!
Live now at
We WILL fest again. Until then, keep the Dudefest dream alive!!!!!!!!
Thank you, with all our hearts,
The Dudefest Crew
