You are invited to The Bottle House and CLE Urban Winery on July 18 from 7 PM to 9 PM to sample delicious homemade pies, cakes, cheesecakes and other delectable confections, all while helping raise money and awareness for two worthy causes, Hola Ohio and Raices Texas. This free event, brought to you by the founders of the Cleveland Bread and Soup Experiment, is designed to raise money for two non-profits organizations – Hola Ohio and Raices Texas. Both offer legal assistance and support for the families affected by the forced border separations and detainment, as well as nationwide mass ICE raids. The money raised will be used to directly help the families in dire need of legal representation and family support services. Hola Ohio in particular is helping families from the recent ICE raids in Norwalk and Sandusky, Ohio.
In addition to copious baked goods, we will have folks registering people to vote, so attendees have the opportunity to make their voice heard at the local, state and national level.
“Like the popular soup and bread events that benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, we hope the Pie-a-Thon brings people together to support neighbors (broadly defined) and encourages folks to stick around and mingle with neighbors and business partners that share a community spirit,” said Simona Mkrtschjan, the CWRU employee who founded Soup and Bread.
In kind donations for this event have been provided by The BottleHouse, CLE Urban Winery, Mason’s Creamery and Poisonberry Bakery.
