Make Our Christmas Gala For The Community Come True!

Hello everyone! Our family has lived in the Akron, Ohio area for our entire lives. When many people think of Akron/Cleveland, usually the first thing that comes to mind is LeBron James. After all, he is one of the most notable people who call our part of the world home. While he does a lot of charity and help in the community, we wanted to do our own part to make Christmas a happy time for as many people as we can by offering a holiday dinner with all the trimmings, gifts for the children, fun, music, games and a visit from Santa! We want everyone to “believe” that the spirit of giving is still very much alive!

The goal of our fundraiser is to raise $50,000 to host this Christmas Gala to bring the community together to celebrate this most joyous time of the year.

My wife Sandy is in charge of making all of the arrangements. She has made contact with a couple of commercial kitchens in the area to inquire about preparing this meal and found them to be very accommodating. They even recommended food service suppliers that could offer reasonable prices on everything we need to make a hot, delicious Christmas dinner for our neighborhood guests. We want to serve Turkey, Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Fresh Dinner Rolls, Corn, Green Beans, Tossed Salads, and of course, the obligatory Cranberry Sauce! If possible, we would like to add some more menu items for variety, but we figure this is a great start for a meal.

For dessert, we would like to serve pumpkin pie, apple crisp, ice cream, and cupcakes. Sandy has spoke with a local baker who said that he can help with the baked goods we need.

We would also like to be able to give at least one gift to all kids that attend, to help make Christmas 2015 a holiday they will remember forever.

If you still believe in Christmas and want to share the gifts you’ve been given with those with much less, I ask you to kindly help make our family Christmas Gala become a reality for 2016. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Cecil and Sandy T. – Ohio
