                    SHAZAM!, founded by Viia and Bill Beechler who co-chaired the event this year, was held at the InterContinetal in celebration of its 25th anniversary. SHAZAM! is the major annual fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland, which serves girls and boys of all races, religions and cultures with activities that focus on academic success, character, citizenship and healthy lifestyles. The event raised more than $170,000.
    More than 350 guests enjoyed the evening which began with cocktails, hors d”oeuvres and a silent auction featuring more than 100 items.
    After dinner, a member of the Boys and Girls Clubs shared how important the clubs” programs have been in shaping her life and credited the organization with making a critical difference in her success.
    Viia and Bill Beechler were then surprised with a video dubbed, “A Little Roasting and a Lot of Toasting,” and the official naming of the Viia and Bill Beechler Boys and Girls Clubs Endowment Fund, well-deserved tributes to their legacy and long history of involvement with the organization.
