FutureHeights is pumped to be hosting Paint the Town, our 2024 summer celebration and fundraiser, July 13 on the beautiful campus of John Carroll University. This year, we’re particularly proud to turn the spotlight on University Heights by hosting our biggest annual event there.

We’re also delighted to announce that FutureHeights will honor John Emerman and Tatyana Rehn of Stone Oven Bakery who, after 29 years of delivering food and friendship in our community, are handing off their wonderful establishment to new owners (who are also from Cleveland Heights).

As always, the food at Paint the Town will be fabulous, the drinks will be flowing, and the music will be epic.

Don’t miss out on a chance to Paint the Town and celebrate the Heights in style while keeping the FutureHeights mission rolling forward! The annual benefit supports many FutureHeights programs, including community leadership development, grants for neighborhood projects, community forums, support for local business owners, and housing revitalization projects. FutureHeights also produces and distributes the Heights Observer newspaper and sponsors the annual Heights Music Hop.

The 2024 benefit features a variety of food and drinks courtesy of The Fairmount, Saroj + Carlos, and The Stone Oven.
