Golden Achievement Awards




                The Golden Age Centers’ (GAC) Golden Achievement Awards drew 250 distinguished guests to The Country Club in Pepper Pike. The event was co-chaired by Barbara Bellin Janovitz along with Lori and John Herman.
    Festivities began with cocktails, music and a fabulous silent auction. After dinner, the program was hosted by Russ Mitchell, the new lead anchor on WKYC channel 3 and managing editor of the evening news.
    The Golden Achievement Awards are given in eight disciplines: business, community service, education, gerontology, medicine, the arts, sports legends and lifetime accomplishments. The 2012 inductees were: Ronald Weinberg, co-founder of Hawk Corporation, for business; Bill Boggess, Tom Lamb and Dennis Zack, from Ohio Cancer Research Associates, for community service; CWRU School of Law professor Leon Gabinet, for education; Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Steven Nissen, for medicine; chef and restaurateur, Zachary Bruell, for the arts; and former Cavalier and TV sports analyst, Austin Carr, as a sports legend.
    For 58 years, GAC has been fulfilling its mission of being a leader in providing services and programs that enhance the quality of life of older persons. Most notably, more than 600 hot meals are delivered every day to homebound seniors who live in poverty. This also serves as a check-in, which for many is their only daily human contact.
