On behalf of the entire Cuyahoga Land Bank team, I would like to thank everyone for making our 10th anniversary IMPACT! event such a success. On Thursday, October 17, we gathered with nearly 400 of our friends and partners in the non-profit and community development field, government, and private sector at The Madison in Cleveland to celebrate the Cuyahoga Land Bank’s $1.4 billion economic impact in Cuyahoga County over the last decade.
Whether you bought tickets to help us celebrate, donated, sponsored the event or purchased advertising, know that your generosity helped to make the event a smashing success. We raised more than $240,000 through the event that will help support the Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities in providing resources to our many charitable partners.
A special thank you to our fabulous event chairs, Len Komorosky (Cleveland Cavaliers CEO) and Fred Geis (Geis Companies Owner), our distinguished host committee, and our outstanding emcee Peter Lawson-Jones. I’d also like to acknowledge our Keynote Speaker Jim Rokakis, Board Chairman Tony Brancatelli, and Silent Auction Chair Ann Frangos for their help in making our first fundraiser an evening to remember.
I would also like to thank the best land bank staff in the country for their hard work in planning and hosting our IMPACT! event.
