Mad About Cleveland Ball a Success

On Saturday, March 26, 2011, the Cleveland Chapter hosted Mad About Cleveland at their new venue, Galleria. Over 350 people gathered to celebrate all that Cleveland has to offer, along with raising over $17,000 for our 2011 recipients: The Kilmartin Family, New Life Community Center and Gretchen Grace Hetzel. Thank you to all who participated and stay tuned for upcoming events in the Cleveland area!
