2019-2020 Annual Appeal

2019-2020 Annual Appeal 2019-12-16T14:06:51-06:00

Thank you for your past support of the Irish American Heritage Center’s Annual Appeal. Thanks to the generosity of our members and donors we were able to accomplish many good things in 2019. But the good works are ongoing. There are so many reasons to donate to the Annual Appeal campaign, our primary fundraiser.

The Irish Community Needs the Irish American Heritage Center. For 40 years, we have hosted gatherings; parties and dances, music and cultural programs that bring our community closer together. Our beautiful building has been lovingly rehabbed and maintained by volunteers, but there is always more work to do.

The People Who Make the Irish American Heritage Center Work Need Our Support. From the volunteers who make our programs possible to the Building Committee who keep us open to the public, it’s the people who keep the IAHC the home of Irish culture on the Northwest side. Your generosity makes their work possible.

The New Mayfair Theatre at the Irish American Heritage Center: Improvements Continue. The continuing renovation of our Auditorium, now the Mayfair Theatre at the Irish American Heritage Center, is a key to our cultural and financial success. New state-of-the-art sound, new carpet and drapery have brought the entertainment experience for artists and patrons to a new level. An HD projector and screen now show free movies for our members. A contribution to the Mayfair Theatre is a contribution to our future.

The Irish American Heritage Center Needs Our Support into the Future. A contribution to the Annual Appeal is an investment in our future and a testament to the work done by our community. Help us grow our cultural programming and keep the Irish American Heritage Center thriving into the future. We ask you to carefully consider another gift to the IAHC this year.

Your gift will be multiplied because of the generosity of the Burkes. $25 becomes $50, $100 becomes $200 and $500 becomes $1000.
