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 support our virtual and adapted in person options continue and maintain costs as we work to provide a variety of dance & culture options to our students. As a thank you for your donation, we would be happy to send you an "Irish themed" adult or child sized mask.
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 email@example.com to let us know if you would like us to mail your Irish themed mask to you or arrange a "no contact" pickup.
We are grateful for your support. Please consider sharing our fundraiser with your friends and family and help us keep the kids dancing! Thanks!
Warm hearts and dancing feet,
