Bears Who Care
A crowd of 560 gathered at the InterContinental Hotel for the second biannual
Bears Who Care benefit event. High-profile teddy bears, signed by celebrities
such as LeBron James, Reese Witherspoon and Cher, were sold in silent and live
auctions, raising $234,000 to help The Gathering Place, a cancer support agency.
Classy evening of tuxedos, dresses and fine art marked the fourth-annual Celebrity Art Auction Gala held at the downtown Hyatt Regency Hotel. A live auction showcased art ranging from handblown glass to oil paintings and photography created in collaboration by area celebrities and artists. Proceeds benefit educational programs and research for the American Diabetes Association.
From gourmet dinners to pre- and after-parties, the fourth-annual FashionWeekCleveland was topped by a fashion show that highlighted the popular bright colors of the season. Founded by Cleveland-area dentist Dr. Donald C. Shingler, the show featured several local boutiques and designers, and gave Cleveland a glimpse of what's in for next season. Cleveland Magazine was a sponsor of the event.
After months of work, May 15 was the show-and-tell day for the more than 15
area designers who participated in this year's Designer ShowHouse, where each
was assigned a portion of a 70,000-square-foot French Neoclassic home in Akron
to redesign. The Junior League of Akron sponsored this fund-raising event to
benefit programs such as Summit County Children Who Witness Violence and the
Children Reads program. Cleveland Magazine and Ohio Magazine were sponsors of
