The Agenda

A happy child's smile is priceless, but making her dream come true requires some cash. So athletes and local personalities hammed it up for donations at the Make-A-Wish Foundation's 10th-annual Celebrity Waiter event on Oct. 5. The event raised $100,000, enough to grant 20 local kids with life -threatening medical conditions their special wishes. Cleveland Magazine was a sponsor of the event.

Jingle Bells

Get in the holiday spirit with the North Coast Men's Chorus "Stocking Stuffers" on Dec. 18 and 19 at Cleveland State University's Waetjen Auditorium. The all-volunteer choir's holiday performances promise to be diverse, funny and full of good cheer. Its 2004-05 concert season also includes performances of "Broadway, Our Way" in April and "A Concert with Michael Feinstein" in June. Season subscriptions are available by calling (216) 556-0590 or visiting Single tickets for "Stocking Stuffers" are also available for $17. Cleveland Magazine is a season sponsor of the NCMC.

Chutes to Thrill

Now that all the amusement parks have closed for the season, what's a thrill-seeker to do? Visit the Cleveland Metroparks Chalet Recreation Area and take a ride on the toboggan chutes!
