What You'll Get
Partaking in a charity fundraiser is an ideal way to give back to the community after a lifetime of rolling stops at intersections and not voting because The Price is Right is on. Make up for lost time with today's Groupon: for $50, you get admission to the Reds, Whites, and Brews: A Toast to Literacy fundraiser for Cleveland Reads (a $90 value). The fundraiser will be held on Friday, July 16, from 6:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. at Windows on the River.
The nonprofit Cleveland Reads has been spreading literacy to children, youth, and families of Northeast Ohio through engaging projects and a dedicated network of tutors since 1987. Its ninth-annual fundraiser promises an elegant evening of all-you-can-drink wine sipping and beer swilling and catered fare of both the savory and sweet varieties for the business-casually adorned do-gooder. Network with your local mail carrier at the see-and-be-seen event or peruse the silent-auction offerings in hopes of stumbling on a porcelain Alf statue. A spirits table raffle offers you the opportunity to bring the party (in a bottle) back to your apartment while simultaneously supporting Cleveland Reads.
Dapper guests will down their tasty treats in the elegantly renovated 19th-century Powerhouse building, with arched windows overlooking the Cuyahoga River, its art-deco bridges, and the shimmering Cleveland skyline. Exposed-brick walls and bronze pillars function as design accents that reflect the industrial, street-car-powering past of the National Historic Landmark. Spectacular riverfront views, enjoyed via the two-story windows and an outdoor patio, promise to please your sense of sight as much as the event's fare massages your taste buds.
