Dear Community Member,
It's an event that helps the whole Valley learn more about what it means to be Polish! Our 8th Annual Polish-American Heritage Day will take place on Saturday, August 27, 2016, at St. Anne's Catholic Church, 3055 South Raccoon Road, Youngstown, OH 44515. Polish Day is the annual fundraiser that helps support our community education and involvement programs all year long.
With last year's proceeds, we were able to complete the accessibility project at the Veterans Monument at Peterson Park and expand our Polish language, cooking and children's class offerings. The balance of the funds are being used this spring to enhance the visibility of the Shrine to Our Lady of Czestochowa at St. Columba Cathedral and will be spent this summer in the form of scholarships to support college students pursuing summer studies in Poland.
PolishYoungstown was created to celebrate and preserve the colorful Polish culture that has been a vital part of the Mahoning Valley community. Since then the common bond for this enthusiastic group of “cultural evangelists” has been sharing the spirit of their heritage by inspiring and educating future generations. Whether you are interested in Chopin and Solidarity or polkas and pierogi, PolishYoungstown classes, workshops and special events offer something for every taste.
Polish Day epitomizes this year-round effort!
We are offering several levels of support for Polish Day, and we hope that you will consider underwriting at one of these levels. The details of the sponsorship packages and participation opportunities are attached. Remember, that since we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, your donation may qualify for a federal charitable contribution deduction! If you'd like to contribute, but in a way not listed, please let us know.
The PolishYoungstown Polka says it best: "It's imperative to know your heritage." We hope you will share that spirit. Your support of Polish Day will help us create a legacy of pride by helping us to perpetuate the Mahoning Valley's proud immigrant story now and into the future.
I would be delighted to speak with you and answer any questions you might have. Please give me a call at 330-333-9724. Thank you!
