North Coast Community Homes
“Home Sweet Homes”




             Hickory Lane Farms’ owners Lenny and Tony Petrarca opened their lovely home to benefit North Coast Community Homes, the nonprofit providing housing for people with mental and other disabilities.
    Ellen and Peter Brodhead were co-chairmen of the party that drew more than 525 guests who had cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while bidding on a silent auction displayed in a tent as the Acacia String Quartet played. They also visited several of the magnificent Arabian horses in the large barn, its show ring transformed for the sit-down dinner catered by Gavi’s.
    WKYC TV’s Dick Russ was celebrity host for the program that included remarks by NCCH Board Chairman Ron Holman, President and CEO Stephen McPeake and Peter Brodhead. Bob Hale of Benefit Auction Services conducted the live auction that featured a video on North Coast Community Homes that has developed 200 properties in four counties for nearly 1,000 clients. With Dick assisting Bob, enough funds were raised to install fire suppression systems in two homes at a cost of $31,000 each. At the end of the auction, the raffle prize to win a two-year lease on a BMW-Z4 convertible was drawn — Matthew Embrescia was the lucky winner.
