CONCORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio, December 19, 2012 - To help make the holiday season brighter for those in need, Lake Health team members donated clothes and toys to 127 Lake County children they adopted as part of the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program.
The children were selected from among the 831 program participants whose angel tags adorned Christmas trees displayed at Lake County businesses, shopping centers and restaurants. The Angel Tree program, created in 1987, distributes tags to various businesses and organizations. Each tag provides a child's first name, age, gender, clothing size, and three suggested gifts, allowing individuals and organizations to purchase toys or clothing items for children in need. Overall, a record 326 bikes were collected for the children this year.
"This is what the Christmas season is all about for us, helping those who can't otherwise help themselves," said Nicholas Gilpin, social service ministry director for the Lake County Salvation Army. "We truly appreciate the incredible generosity of Lake Health employees and the entire community. There will be many smiling faces in Lake County on Christmas morning."
"The Angel Tree Program helps families who aren't able to provide Christmas for their children," said Gary Robinson, Lake Health's vice president of government and community affairs. "For all of us, it was an opportunity to give a little, but make a big difference in the lives of area children."
Held on Saturday, October 20th, the 23rd Annual Glitz welcomed nearly 600 guests at LaMalfa in Mentor, OH. Activities included Cashpalooza, a Gem Grab, the raffle of a 2013 BMW 328i two-year lease, Barrels of Fun, and a Silent and Live Auction. The Glitz 2012 was financially the most successful Glitz in history with revenue exceeding $306,000! Guests were mesmerized by the metro feel of the night as well as the 35-piece Brass Band of the Western Reserve. The Live Auction featured many items including a cruise for two, stocked wine cellar, backyard catered party for eight at the DeJoy's (owners of John Palmer's Bistro 44), and much more! Revenue from the Fund-A-Need portion of the evening will benefit Cardiac Services at Lake Health. Congratulations to the many winners throughout the evening including Phil and Kathy Guban, the winners of the BMW Raffle! Thank you to all who attended and for our many sponsors whose support reached new heights with over $200,000 in revenue! Thanks to the many volunteers who helped make the Glitz a success!
