The Event 2014: Club C
The night began with house made mojitos by Beau’s Grille as guests arrived at the home of Steve Comunale. Guests then walked into an airy, colorful, and welcoming tent designed by Mary McBride of the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn and Neil Leeson of Neil Leeson Decor Floral, Inc. It was filled with lime green and teal linens with pops of orange on the all-white furniture. Bidding on silent auction items, chatting, and laughing commenced as old and new friends of the Stephen A. Comunale, Jr. Family Cancer Foundation gathered on the beautiful Saturday in September. Butler passed hors d’oeuvres of authentic Cuban Sandwich Sliders, Empanadas, and (the now famous) shrimp display tantalized the guests’ taste buds. Shortly after, the dinner buffet prepared by Beau’s Grille was opened. Edge beef tenderloin, Cuban spiced mahi-mahi, and Samurai coconut rice were just a few of the signature items on the South Beach inspired menu. The live auction began with incredible items up for bid like a private trip to the 2015 Masters, a week long ski retreat in Colorado, and an in home catered dinner for 25 prepared by Chef Beau. Now, the stage was set for what was to be an epic performance by The Pointer Sisters – Official. Ruth, Anita, and Sadako Pointer glided on stage and performed some of their most famous hits to a packed dance floor. Late night eats were provided by Mama Meyo’s Pizza and The Rail – Akron. The 2014 Event had an incredible turnout because of all of our supporters. We can’t thank you enough for helping us to continue doing what we do.
