It feels good to do good—and it feels even better to honor those who are leading the charge. That was the collective sentiment last night at Punch Bowl Social in Cleveland where a big crowd gathered at the 2nd Annual ‘Champions in the Community’ event. The benefit honored local champions in the Greater Cleveland sports community—from high school to the pros—whose charitable wins off the field are making an impact in our community and beyond.
I’m so proud that Shamrock was an event sponsor again this year, working to raise funds for Our Lady of the Wayside—an organization that is near and dear to our hearts. If you’re not already familiar, Our Lady of the Wayside is a very special local organization that supports nearly 1,000 children and adults in Northeast Ohio who have developmental disabilities and intellectual challenges.
The event was emceed by ESPN Cleveland’s Jerod Cherry and WTAM’s Bill Wills. They recognized selected Champions in various athletic categories for their good deeds and philanthropic leadership. Here’s a recap of those who were honored:
It was an honor to be a part of such a great event alongside other local businesses and organizations who feel passionately about giving back to this wonderful community where we live and work.
