Watch Lehigh Valley with Love’s Video As Part of the #BacktoBethlehem Campaign!

The Bethlehem Chamber, Downtown Bethlehem Association, Southside Arts District and Community Action Development Corporation of Bethlehem have come together to launch the #BacktoBethlehem campaign as their counties move to the Yellow Phase.

This campaign is all about preparing both the merchants and the community for getting back to business. “We want to make sure our business community is equipped with all the information and supplies they need in order to safely re-open.” said Tammy Wendling, Downtown Bethlehem Association Manager.

In addition to making sure merchants are ready, Missy Hartney, Southside Arts District Downtown Manager says “it’s extremely important to make sure the community knows what expectations there will be for them as customers as well as making them feel comfortable with coming back out to support these small businesses.”

Bethlehem merchants have been asked to take the Vow of the Valley, launched by the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. Those who sign the online vow, will receive a “Back to Bethlehem” graphic to use on social media and their website. This will let the community know these businesses took a pledge to protect their health and safety during this re-opening phase.

In addition to the Vow of the Valley, this task force partnered with Lehigh Valley with Love Media to create a video encouraging the community to come out and support Bethlehem businesses in the yellow phase.

As seen in the video, DLP Real Estate Capital and South Carolina based, SC Health generously donated 10,000 masks to the Bethlehem business community to ensure the safety of both employees and customers.

For more information on this campaign and to take the Vow of the Valley visit : www.lehighvalleychamber.org/backtobethlehem

Christmas Tree Toss for Charity Returns to Bethlehem in Honor of Late Founder

Bizarre tree-throwing charity event to be held in Peter Kearns’ honor

 

***EDIT! Our rescheduled date is now 12/24 at 11 a.m. Please RSVP here***

The popular Bethlehem Christmas Toss for Charity will be held this year in memory of its late founder, Peter Kearns, on December 24 at 11 a.m. at More Miles Automotive, 1458 Stefko Blvd., Bethlehem, PA.

The original event was first held in 2002 when then Meineke Car Care owner Peter Kearns challenged Mike DeCrosta, currently of More Miles Automotive, to a contest. The resulting yearly tradition became something of a bizarre, but wildly popular, way to celebrate the holiday season. Peter Kearns passed away this summer, making this year’s event that much more important.

The event originally ended in 2013 after Kearns retired, but was revived in 2015 at the behest of fans and former participants.
