A Wrap-Up of the 35th Anniversary Luncheon - and Some Pics!

From the desk of Sarah Trimble, Director of Development

On September 9, 2009 CRCC hosted a luncheon at Windows on the River to celebrate it’s 35th Anniversary. This first time fundraiser enjoyed the company of nearly 500 people and raised over $50,000 to support the work of the Center and its fabulous volunteers!

We had a “celebrity” choir that showcased our biennial event “Sing Out! for Cleveland Rape Crisis Center” and Miss World 1998, Linor Abragil, was the keynote speaker. Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word about this event as well as everything else you do to support CRCC and those who have experienced sexual violence. We couldn’t do it without your support!

The choir warming up - these people have amazing talent! (I wasn't offered a spot ...)

Glendale Elementary School let us borrow some of their (cutest!) students for a demonstration on "No! Go! Tell!" a program they learned from a CRCC Educator

Two founding members of the CRCC - Jeanne Van Atta (center) and Lorraine Schalamon (right). We have a lot to thank them for! Jeanne is standing next to her husband - whom she met while she was working as a JSA with the CRCC and he was in the prosecutor's office!

Each table had a birthday cake reminding everyone this was a "birthday party"! There was no leftover cake (trust me, I was looking for it!).
