This has been quite a year of opportunity, accomplishment, growth and success for the Irish Cultural Center of Western New England. This year, 2019, marked our 20th anniversary. We are so proud of what we have accomplished in the past 20 years as an organization. We look forward to many more prosperous years of culture and friendship to come.
Without financial donations, these achievements would not have been realized. This effort is successful because of the support of many who make a decision to act. GivingTuesday is the perfect opportunity to make a tax-deductible, year-end gift.
We have worked steadfastly on our new home in West Springfield to renovate and restore the facility, rebuilding it to suit our unique purposes of promoting and preserving our Irish heritage in the community. Weekly events at the ICC and in the Irish House Restaurant and Trinity Pub have continued to grow, including a traditional Irish music seisiún, concerts and live music, book readings, celebrity bartending events, charitable fundraisers, and the newest addition to the calendar – a traditional céilí. Irish-oriented lectures, political discussions, international relations, GAA sports, Irish language classes, and student international exchange are all a part of what we provide the community.
With the holiday season fast approaching, now is a great time to take stock and truly recognize how blessed and fortunate we are in life. It is a time of Thanksgiving and reflection. Here, at the Irish Cultural Center, we are most thankful for you!
Whether you are Irish or not, love the language or the music, or just want to support the preservation of art and culture, your contribution is greatly appreciated.
The Irish Cultural Center, Inc. of Western New England is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. GivingTuesday is a Global Generosity Movement on December 03, 2019.
