The 33rd annual Great Irish Fair (GIF) will be held on September 13th and 14th, 2014  near MCU Park in Coney Island where 15,000 attendees come to enjoy and celebrate Irish-American heritage and culture.  GIF is a weekend filled with great traditional Irish music and dance, rides and entertainment for the children, refreshments, and arts and crafts. In keeping with our charitable tradition, 100% of all net proceeds derived from GIF will be donated to benefit Brooklyn Diocesan Catholic Elementary Schools.

By sponsoring GIF you will show your community support and generate goodwill.  This opportunity also provides a way to build loyalty with customers and prospects.  As a sponsor of GIF you will enhance your company name and gain brand recognition.

At GIF you will reach thousands of prospects and customers and will have a chance to promote your product or services.  Again all of this is done in a family friendly atmosphere while helping Brooklyn and Queens elementary Catholic schools generate funds that are so needed.

You also gain great access and exposure to all our attendees.

Catholic Elementary Schools

Giving our children a strong elementary school education is critical in order for them to go on to higher levels of learning to achieve academic excellence and become productive members of society.

  • In national and science achievement tests at both the elementary and secondary levels, Catholic school students outscored their public school counterparts.
  • In all subjects, students show greater academic achievement gains between tenth and twelfth grades than do public school students.
  • Students from disadvantaged families show no corresponding academic deficiencies in math or verbal achievement, while similar students in public and other private schools show substantial academic deficiencies.
  • Minority students from underprivileged backgrounds outperform their public school counterparts.
  • Graduates of every ethnic background choose a pre-professional college curriculum twice as often as public school graduates.
  • The graduation rate for all Catholic high school students is 95% and for public schools 66%.
