Ohio Valley School of Celtic Dance and Culture, home to the Athens Irish Dancers, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to build confidence and self-esteem in young dancers through the art and performance of Irish dance. We are a volunteer-run organization that takes great care to keep costs low as we believe that finances should never be a barrier to dancing.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, we have provided virtual Irish Dance lessons, A virtual camp with both dance and Irish Cultural activities, and in person, private lessons with infection control procedures and masks to best serve our dancers during these unprecedented times. Staying connected with our Irish Dance community has been a welcomed support, but now we need YOUR help.
We would be grateful for your donation to help us return to our floors (when it is safe) and maintain costs in the meantime. Donate now and you have the option to surprise a friend with a “lucky charm” Irish themed face mask while supplies last!! PLEASE DONATE HERE through this campaign or by sending a check made out to “OVSCDC” with “mask fundraiser” in the memo line to Athens Irish Dancers at PO Box 75, Athens, OH 45701. We would love to thank you for your donation if you drop us an email to let us know. Our tax ID number is 47-3890691.
After you make your donation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you would like us to mail your mask to surprise a friend with a “lucky charm” or if you would like to pick up your mask in person with a “no contact” option. If you are out of town or would like to surprise a friend or family member with a “lucky charm”, please indicated the size of your choice (small, medium, large), name & address, and an optional note for the recipient!
If you are local to the greater Athens, Ohio, area, you will have the opportunity to pick up your mask and select your mask pattern from what we have in stock. We will ensure an opportunity for pickup that is appropriately physically distanced with no-contact.
We are grateful for your support. Please consider sharing our fundraiser with your friends and family and help us keep the kids dancing! Thanks!
