From the hearts of our sponsors

Roetzel & Andress

With more than 125 years of experience, the attorneys and legal staff at Roetzel & Andress remain dedicated to providing excellence and the highest level of service, both at work and in the community.

One of Ohio’s oldest law firms, we have developed countless partnerships in the community and are proud to conduct business with some of Cleveland’s most benevolent establishments.

It is often said that charity begins at home, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our own work force. Our employees support each other by participating in the fund-raisers of children and grandchildren. Others donate their time in the civic realm, getting involved in activities from holding public office to serving as board members of institutions and charities.

Individual acts of generosity inspire an altruistic spirit and compassion that infuse the firm’s larger philanthropic goals. Roetzel & Andress takes great pride in our commitment to serve the Greater Cleveland area and beyond.

Our past and continued dedication to public service remains steadfast. We congratulate this year’s Pillar Award recipients.

Hughie’s Audio Visual

It is our philosophy at Hughie’s Audio Visual to support and give back to the organizations and companies that have helped us grow. Whether in the form of equipment donations or monetary contributions, it is our way of saying thank you to those who have put their trust in us to professionally handle their presentation needs.

We also recognize that, by supporting community projects and activities, we can enhance our community’s reputation and, in turn, help stimulate new business from which we all can benefit.

Over the past few years, we have contributed to companies in the Greater Cleveland community through volunteerism and financial support. They, in turn, have been able to help people in need, and for that we are grateful.

Special thanks to those organizations, including Playhouse Square Foundation, Tremont Arts, COSE, Police Officers Memorial, Taste of the NFL, Our Lady of the Wayside, Sales & Marketing Executives of Cleveland, Cleveland Orchestra, International Women’s Air & Space Museum, Cleveland Advertising Association and the Cleveland Convention and Visitors Bureau.


Involve, KPMG’s national community involvement program, enables partners and employees of the accounting and tax firm to help build a culture of corporate citizenship and provides opportunities, time and resources to make a real and positive impact on our communities.

KPMG offices throughout the country operate their own area Involve programs. Involve also partners with a host of leading nonprofit organizations, such as the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, the American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

This year marked the third annual Involve “Family Volunteer Day,” in which thousands of KPMG professionals and their families throughout the country joined together to paint, plant, tutor and build — all for the benefit of their local communities. The Cleveland office Involve council organized eight projects for KPMG’s 2003 Family Volunteer Day. More than 100 professionals and their families pitched in to participate in planned projects for various Cleveland-based charities.
