“Millionaires Row”

Come listen to Dan Ruminski talk about this fascinating era in Cleveland’s history at the 14th annual Friends of WomenSafe Spring Luncheon, Wednesday, May 15, 2013, in the Banquet Room at St. Mary’s, 401 North Street in Chardon. At its height of grandeur, Millionaires Row stretched four miles along Euclid Avenue from Public Square. Approximately 250 mansions comprised what was once known as “the most beautiful street in America.” Millionaires Row featured the magnificent homes of Cleveland’s most influential families, many of which are still familiar to us today – Rockefeller, Mather, Wade, Gund, Brush, Severance, and Hanna to name a few.

The doors will open at 11:30 a.m. so you can buy tickets for the lavish Chinese Auction items offered every year. Items include certificates for restaurants, overnights, jewelry made by area artists, and specialty baskets to name just a few of the items you can win. Reserve House Catering will prepare the delicious lunch, and we will be serenaded by the beautiful music of harpist Virginia Dickson. Thanks to the generous support of Bonitas International, Gattozzi & Son Funeral Home, Home Savings, Main Sequence Technology, O’Reilly Equipment and Residence Artists, the price is only $30.00 per person. Please call 440-285-3741 to make your reservation today!

Up to 50% of homeless women and children are fleeing domestic violence. By attending this fundraiser, you will be part of the solution for families and individuals in crisis. The Friends of WomenSafe exist solely to generate unrestricted funds to support the important work of WomenSafe. We would love to see you at St. Mary’s as you treat yourself to a lovely afternoon and support in this worthy cause!
