One Week Until the Gala

The 2012 Hand Up Gala is next Thursday December 6, 2012, but the drawing for the prizes will be December 14, 2012.  You have a little over two weeks to make a donation to this unique event in Cleveland.    Executive Caters is donating table cloths, napkins and plate for the event.  We have six florists donating centerpieces (Lyndhurst, Monica's, 12th St. Florist, Cloud, Berghaus, and Diamond's Flowers) for the tables.  We have musicians from the Cleveland Institute of Music (Conrad, Gary and Doug).  We have a couple of celebrity servers (State Rep. Bill Patmon, Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, Councilman Zach Reed, and Congressman Kucinich's staff Laurie Rokakis) along with Board members of the two agencies. 

Chef Matt Barnes, the new executive chef at LMM's Central Kitchen, will be preparing the four star lunch.  He has worked out a fantasitc menu, and we are preparing to feed 200 people next Thursday.   We need your help with a donation to our two agencies.  All of the food and supplies for this event are donated, but thus is a replacement for our annual fundraising dinner.  We do seek funds for this event to assist both organizations expand our services to homeless people.  We use the proceeds to buy additional bus tickets and for the coordination of our outreach and blanket drive.  Everything donated to this event goes into programming.  As a thank you for your donation, we enter your name in a raffle for some fantastic prizes. We will have photos and a few stories from previous events.
