The Lakewood Women's Club kicked off their 2013-14 year on August 20th at The Cleveland Yacht Club. Members and guests gathered to discuss up-coming events and socials that are planned for the year. One of the biggest events of the season is the LWC 5K Great Pumpkin Fun Run that takes place at Lakewood Park on Sunday, October 27th. All proceeds from this race will go to our charity recipients; The HUGS foundation, Lakewood H2O and our 2014 scholarship winner.
This is the first year the LWC is raising money for The HUGS foundation. It is an organization dedicated to helping families who are struggling with addiction in Northeastern Ohio. It provides funds for treatment, travel and ancillary services not covered by insurance benefits. According to HUGS founder Dianne Vogt, "support from family is critical to long term recovery for alcoholic and chemically dependent adolescents". If you have been helped by the HUGS foundation, the only thing she asks is for you to pay it forward by helping someone else in need. Visit The HUGS website at http://www.hugs4families.org/ to find out more information about this amazing foundation.
So come out to Lakewood Park on October 27th for the 9th Annual Great Pumpkin Fun Run and have a good time while supporting several worthy causes.
