Love Going to:

Our goal has always been to elevate our community and this event will be no exception. For this event we have partnered with Summit County Children's Services to help raise awareness for foster child adoption and to call our community to serve children in need -- right in our backyard. Summit County's heroin epidemic is driving a dramatic increase in the number of children entering foster care and the state of Ohio has issued emergency pleas for more people to become foster parents and take neglected children into their homes. 

If you are interested in providing monetary support, you can make a donation at their booth on event or purchase an event shirt. Part of shirt proceeds will go right to Summit County Children's Services.
