Celebrating 50 Years of Opportunities
For 50 years, Our Lady of the Wayside has been honored. Honored by the opportunity to roll up our sleeves along side family members, volunteers and Board members to do the next right thing for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Honored by the opportunity to work with public corporations, private companies, individual donors and governmental agencies to change the lives of the most vulnerable for the better. Best of all, Wayside has been honored to have the opportunity to earn the trust, friendship and love that comes with caring for someone special.
2017 Marks our 50th year of serving individuals with developmental disabilities. Golden Anniversaries are typically a time to pause and reflect, but that's really not the Wayside way...Continued on our blog.
Maybe you joined in the barbeque of the summer at Grapes & Ale, tantalized your taste buds at Cleveland’s Finest Hors D ’Oeuvres, or ran for the Wayside during the Labor of Love Run. Perhaps you stood with us as we honored some of the Northeast Ohio’s finest at the Starlight Guardian Humanitarian Awards, “Donated Your Ride to Our Lady of the Wayside”, or gave just recently to our Annual Appeal. This year, your involvement made all the difference in creating life-changing opportunities for the children and adults with developmental disabilities the Wayside supports. On behalf of the 750 individuals we are privileged to serve, our staff and Board, thank you for your generosity and kindness and happiest of holidays from Our Lady of the Wayside.
Smart Business Pillar Awards
Last week we were honored to be a part of Smart Business' inspiration 2016 Pillar Awards for community service. This event not only recognizes philanthropy but also raises money to aid area charitable organizations. Wayside Board Chair Chris Zito presents David Bouffard, from Akron Children's Hospital and Doug Kern, from Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland with the Our Lady of the Wayside Nonprofit Board Executive of the Year Award. It was a pleasure to witness the wonderful philanthropy of so many businesses and organizations. We also enjoyed seeing many of our partners like Medical Mutual and the Cleveland Cavaliers in attendance. We are proud to be part of this incredible community.
