To ILEA Cleveland Members:
As I am wrapping up my last few months as President, I would like to thank you, the members, for getting involved, volunteering, attending events and spreading the great work of ILEA. Our chapter will be giving out a President’s Award to an individual that has been extremely supportive in the chapter in more ways than one. The recipient of this award will receive FREE admission to each ILEA Cleveland event for the 2015-2016 ILEA year. The winner will be announced in June.
Last month ILEA Cleveland hosted an event at the new Corner Alley in Uptown. Members had the chance to bowl, spin-the-wheel, have a dance-off and participate in a 50/50 raffle. Proceeds from the activities totaled over $200 and were donated to the SEARCH Foundation. The SEARCH Foundation was formed to assist special event professionals faced with a life threatening illness or catastrophic occurrence. Thank you to all that participated that evening!
Coming up this month we are hosting our very first ILEA Gives Back event in support of Cleveland Crops. Please join us on May 12 from 3:00 pm – 6:30pm at Stearns Homestead Farm in Parma, Ohio. We will be assisting in weed pulling, harvesting crops, painting, and building hoop houses to benefit the Stearns Homestead Farm. Upon completion, we will enjoy some food and fellowship together. We hope you can join us to support the community!
New this year we will be making ILEA Pub Crawl T-shirts that members can wear to show their pride and support. These shirts will be available at the June 9 Pub Crawl in a new location, Ohio City. More details coming soon. Mark your calendars now because you don’t want to miss the most anticipated ILEA event of the year!
