Engaged Citizens. Innovative Ideas.

Thank you for helping us celebrate the many things that make Cleveland Heights great at

 a benefit for FutureHeights on July 27, 2019!

Presented by:

Many thanks to our hosts in the beautiful Inglewood Historic District–Terri & Elio DiPaola, Cecile & James Fooshe; and Helen Foley & Jim Kazura–our sponsors, and donors!

We had a roaring good time honoring Suzanne DeGaetano,
manager and co-owner of Mac’s Backs Books on Coventry,
and Tommy Fello, owner of Tommy’s restaurant,

at this elegant affair!

We enjoyed heavy appetizers, desserts and libations from these fine Cleveland Heights establishments:
Aladdin’s Eatery, CLE Urban Winery, Dewey’s Pizza, Lopez on Lee, Luna Bakery Cafe, Mitchell’s Fine Chocolates, Mister Brisket, Nighttown, Phoenix Coffee, Quintana’s Speakeasy, The Fairmount, The Tavern Company, Tommy’s restaurant and  Zagara’s Marketplace.

We enjoyed performances by:
Peacock, Master of Ceremonies; April Urban’s Charleston dance group; and the musical stylings of D.J. Kris Koch.

Thanks also to Mazie Adams, City Architecture, Disciples Christian Church, Ensemble Theatre, Executive Caterers, Stems Fleur, Stephen Cutri Photography, Gabe Schaffer photography, and April Urban for their in-kind support.
