GGP’s HomeGrown Geauga Goes Virtual

Geauga Growth Partnership (GGP) is announcing that our signature fundraiser, HomeGrown Geauga, is going virtual on August 7th at 7:30 pm.  The event was scheduled to take place in person at Sapphire Creek, but out of concern for the health and wellness of sponsors and supporters, we will be holding a live streaming fundraiser this year. 

According to Kimm Leininger, President & CEO for GGP, “In light of recent spikes in COVID-19 cases, the GGP Board of Directors has decided to move HomeGrown Geauga to a 100% virtual event this year. We know that this event has become the “Garden Party of the Summer” and we are extremely disappointed that we won’t be able to enjoy the night with our supporters that evening. However, out of respect for the health and safety of everyone involved, we felt this decision was necessary.”

GGP encourages the community to join the fun during their live-streamed event on August 7th between 7:30pm and 9:00pm.  The night will include entertainment and special guests, which will be hosted by local auctioneer, Scott Mihalic and Kimm Leininger.  GGP will still be offering a silent auction, $5000 cash raffle, a live auction and more. We encourage you to share this event with your friends and on social media, using our hashtag: #hgg2020.  Consider hosting a watch party or become a sponsor!  Check out the watch party packages here:
