Children’s Free Care Fund

Across the region, Howard Hanna Smythe Cramer offices hosted benefits during the holiday season for the Children’s Free Care Fund.
In Solon, a cocktail party at Macklin Event Centre featured a hot buffet, a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, a wine pull and a sponsor-a-child ornament tree. And this year, the Howard Hanna company donated a 2009 mini Cooper in a regional raffle.
According to Laura Lyons and Barbara Jayme of the Solon office, the committee worked diligently to put the shindig together and they did it in six weeks. The event raised about $12,000 for the Children’s Free Care Fund.
Magician Paul Gerber entertained the crowd, and Jan le Comte drew caricatures for guests.
With the help of the Howard Hanna family, agents and clients, almost $5 million has been raised in the last 19 years. “The purpose of the fund is to assure that needy children will never be denied the best medical care available — whether it is to help children without healthcare pay for medical treatment or for cutting-edge care that insurance may not cover,” according to Howard Hanna’s mission.
Some Howard Hanna offices hosted “chow-chow express” luncheons during the holiday season, among other types of parties.
Contributions in the Greater Cleveland area have gone directly to Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, Akron Children’s Hospital and Metro Health Hospital. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALI Mc SHERRY
