CRCC's Events - The Year In Review

from Michelle Feinberg, Special Events Coordinator

CRCC has been celebrating its 35th Anniversary year and what a year it has been! Community leaders, volunteers, corporate supporters, individual supports and CRCC staff all have taken part in recognizing 35 years of providing strength, compassion and hope for survivors of sexual violence.

Several events took place throughout the year; here are some of the highlights!

September 9, 2009- 35th Anniversary Luncheon featuring Keynote speaker Linor Abargil and a memorable performance from “Choir 35”. In front of a full room of more than 450 people, Linor shared her emotional and powerful story of her experience with being a survivor of sexual violence. Linor continues to speak out against sexual violence and seeks to use her law degree to represent women who are victims.

October 17, 2009- No Name Band event. The Masonic Auditorium was rocking with 200 of Cleveland’s finest. The No-Name Band, made up of a group of prominent community leaders donated their time and talents to perform and help raise funds for CRCC.

November 5, 2005- CRCC opened its doors to the community for a House Warming Party. More than 200 of the Center’s friends were treated to tours of the new beautiful space. On June 1, 2009, CRCC moved into its new home in the Leader Building. The new space is more than twice the size of the old and offers a truly healing and tranquil environment.

CRCC looks forward to continuing its vital mission for the next 35 years! Thank you for your support this year and for helping us make a difference in this community!
