Local organizations can gain visibility and earn money

Bethlehem, PA – June 17, 2024 – The Celtic Cultural Alliance (CCA) is pleased to be able to offer local organizations, clubs and teams an opportunity to fundraise at the Celtic Classic.

Celtic Classic has several jobs for organizations to spread their message, gain visibility and fundraise.  All are welcome, including student groups & teams, animal rescues, veterans, humanitarian aid and more.  “This is a way for CCA to help the local community and schools”, states Jayne Ann Recker, Executive Director of the Celtic Cultural Alliance.  “It is a great setting to reach a lot of people in a short time, who may not otherwise be aware of the need”.  Recker says that it is a win for both as the group gains visibility and fundraising revenue and the Celtic Classic has more volunteer help.

Several jobs are student friendly and will earn community service hours.  Jobs range from staffing gift card booths, to restroom and parking lot attendants.  The spaces are limited and will fill quickly.  Interested groups should inquire at info@celticfest.org or 610-868-9599 as soon as possible.

Recker also states that while the Celtic Classic is mostly cashless this year, patrons should be sure to have a few dollars to help these worthy causes.

About the Celtic Cultural Alliance

On Columbus Day weekend in 1988, the first Celtic Classic was presented by a small group of individuals.  The goal of this dedicated group was to create an event that symbolized the Celtic spirit and history, and to provide the impetus for an organization that focused on promoting the Celtic culture. This group has now evolved into Celtic Cultural Alliance to better communicate the overall goals of the organization.

The CCA has expanded with year-round programming to support the mission of promoting and preserving Celtic Culture through arts, music, literature, dance, and history programs. In keeping with the spirit of “Next Generation”, the CCA also offers scholarships to promising young students of the Celtic Arts. These yearly scholarships are offered to students of the arts, including Irish Step Dance, Highland Dance, Fiddle, and Bagpipes.

The Celtic Classic has blossomed into one of the largest Highland Games and Celtic Festivals in North America. Annually, over 200,000 visitors come to Historic Bethlehem to join in this celebration of all things Celtic. The organization has expanded into year-round programs. Our educational programming has expanded to include community outreach events in area school districts, religious institutions, local theaters and colleges throughout the Lehigh Valley. A series of scholarships are awarded each year in varied areas of Celtic culture.
