Throughout the month of May, support your future business and community leaders in a variety of ways! From May 1st to May 31st, the Greater Bath Area Chamber of Commerce (GBACC), a proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, will host two fundraising initiatives to benefit their Scholarship Fund! Each year, the GBACC awards at least one student from the Northampton Area School District with one scholarship. With their biggest fundraiser of the year, Spuds & Suds, being cancelled, the GBACC has pivoted to host their first-ever Slice for the Scholarship and Quotes for the Scholarship Fundraisers. Not only will both initiatives benefit students of the Northampton Area School District, but they will also encourage the community to support our local businesses.
The first initiative, Slice for the Scholarship, includes partnerships with several local restaurants. Each participant will feature a promotion and the indicated percentage of proceeds will be donated to the scholarship fund. Participants include:
- My Place Pizza Restaurant – 10% of all proceeds (Tuesdays from 5 PM – 9 PM)
- PizzaVille Italian Eatery –15% of all proceeds (All Day Wednesdays)
- Stefano’s Italian Grille – $1 from each pizza pie when flyer is turned in at time of pickup or purchase (Every Day, All Day)
- Villa Grande Pizzeria – 75% of all pizza slice proceeds (Tuesdays from 5 PM – 8 PM)
The second initiative, Quotes for the Scholarship, is a collaboration with your local State Farm agent, Tony Tibaldi. For every free, no-obligation quote that Tony receives, he will donate $25 to the scholarship fund. In order to qualify for this promotion, you must be a new client for State Farm Insurance. For your quote, call Tony at (484) 281-3145!
Jessica O’Donnell, EVP of Affiliated Chambers for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, commented, “The Greater Bath Area Chamber has always been committed to supporting our future business and community leaders. In a year that has turned everyone’s lives upside now, we know that students have missed out on a multitude of opportunities and “rites of passage”. Therefore, we felt it was more important than ever for us to continue this tradition. With our biggest fundraiser of the year being cancelled, our board quickly began brainstorming other potential fundraising opportunities. We are thrilled to say that, through the power of partnerships, we will be hosting two scholarship fundraiser this year with multiple local businesses! We encourage community members to participate as they will not only be supporting students of the Northampton Area School District, but also our local establishments.”
Pietro Russo, Owner of Stefano’s Sicilian Grille, said, “With everything that has happened this past year, I’ve continually revisited a quote that my late mother always use to say, ‘When everything seems to be going wrong, always remember there is worse in life.’ We are both excited and honored to be a part of this initiative as it will allow us to support a cause that will positively impact students of the Northampton Area School District.”
Tony Tibaldi, Owner of the State Farm Insurance Bath Office, commented, “The Tony Tibaldi State Farm Agency is thrilled to help The Greater Bath Area Chamber of Commerce with this initiative. Investment in the youth of our community through education is paramount for the success of the community. With the rising costs of education expenses, we know that every little bit helps these students while they are moving on to the next chapter in their lives. We are excited about the opportunity to quote new customers through the initiative; so we can help them manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams. It’s why I became a State Farm Agent. Helping people is in our blood!”
