Dear Community,
On behalf of all the
individuals and families who
walk through our doors to
utilize our free programs and
services for those touched
by cancer we say THANK
The rain didn't keep over
4,000 people from coming
out to celebrate National
Cancer Survivors Day and
help us raise over $410,000
net at Race for the Place.
This is the most money ever
raised through a fundraising
event in the history of The
Gathering Place.
A thousand thanks to our
presenting sponsor Universi-
ty Hospitals Seidman Cancer

Anthem and Medical Mutual,
all of our other sponsors,

Letters to the Community
Dear Community,
The Beachwood Chamber of Commerce
is proud to welcome ESPN's Mark "Munch"
Bishop and Dan Rositano as our July luncheon
keynote speakers, Wednesday, July 13 at the
Doubletree Beachwood. Check-in begins at
11:30 am and the luncheon runs from 12 to
1:10 pm. The cost is $30 for members, $35 for
non-members and $5 more each for walk-ins,
space permitting.
Their presentation will touch on the impact of
sports on the Cleveland economy. This year, more
than ever, everyone's a sports fan! With Cleveland
as a major-city sports arena, take advantage of
this opportunity to learn about sports' stats and
metrics, how Cleveland is perceived as a major
sports city and how businesses benefit.
July 12 is the chamber's 25th anniversary yet
another reason to join us on July 13! Mayor Merle
S. Gorden will commemorate the occasion with
a proclamation, and all in attendance will enjoy
a cake reception. For more information, call
216.831.0003 or visit I look
forward to seeing you there.
