CBC hosted its second annual Mahoning Valley fundraiser, LUV IN, on Sunday afternoon, May 4th , at the Fireplace in Poland, OH. This event was the culmination of months of planning, preparation and legwork!
We garnered a good deal of media coverage, ranging from a video shout-out from Martin Mull and several local print press releases to multiple television and radio appearances in the run-up to the event.
Close to 200 people came to see members of their favorite local bands from the late 1960s: The Executioners, Holes in the Road, Human Beingz and Pied Pipers. Many of the original members of those bands were on hand to both meet & greet their former fans and take a turn at performing live that afternoon.
Those in attendance had the opportunity to bid on exclusive unique music and entertainment themed items, including an autographed Rolling Stones guitar, autographed cast photos from Breaking Bad and the Big Bang Theory, autographed sheet music from Lady Gaga and Katie Perry and much more!
We want to offer special thanks to Karen & Tom Campana and their staff at The Fireplace in Poland for their generous and eager support for this event, along with Jerry Centifanti and his "House Band", photographer Joan Yanchick and the many CBC volunteers who worked so hard to make this event a winner! Thanks also to Stephanie Sferra and the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau for the strategic planning session that guided our path to success.
