Two champions of The Wayside were honored recipients at the 12th Annual Starlight Guardian Humanitarian Award Luncheon on Tuesday, August 30th at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven. Inspirational business leader, Ratanjit Sondhe and business leader and Wayside Board Member, Dick Griffin received their award before a crowd of 600 attendees. 

"We are so fortunate to have these two accomplished individuals as members of The Wayside Family," said Terry Davis, President and CEO of Our Lady of the Wayside. 

Tuesday's Luncheon raised $350,000 which will go towards funding for the new Mentor Pathways Day Program and Pathways Scholarships. This fourth Pathways site will continue our goal of creating opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities and building a dynamic future. 

The agency is grateful for the overwhelming support the Starlight event has generated over the years to provide services for the over 700 individuals with disabilities in nearly 75 neighborhood homes in Cuyahoga, Lake, Lorain, Geauga, Medina and Summit Counties. 

Dream Day with The Cleveland Indians & Dream Days Ohio!

On August 3rd, participants from our Pathways Day Program had the opportunity to throw, catch and hit right on the field! Everyone had a fantastic experience and Pitching Coach Mickey Callaway and his family stopped by to meet everyone during lunch.  A big thanks to partner The Cleveland Indians, Dream Days Ohio and The Diamond Boys for making it an unforgettable day!
