Our Lady of the Wayside “Grapes and Ale”

More than 1,200 people flocked to Progressive Field to benefit Our Lady of the Wayside, where they enjoyed area restaurants’ best barbeque, washed down with samples of wine and beer. In addition to the popular “Best of Grapes” blind tasting, new this year was one for the best craft brew. Best wines were Joel Gott Cabernet (red) and Calling All Angels Chardonnay (white) and the best craft brew awarded to Goose Island Sofie. Celebrity hosts were John Lanigan, Mark “Munch” Bishop, Average Joe, Melissa Mack and Joe Crea. Entertainment was by Colin Dussault’s Acoustic Side Project.

The event, presented by Giant Eagle, has raised nearly $1.5 million since its inception 14 years ago. Our Lady of the Wayside, said CEO Terry Davis, just opened a new day program of its Pathways Program for art and music therapy as well as computer skills training in Garfield Heights. OLW, in collaboration with the State of Ohio and the Cuyahoga County Department of Developmental Disabilities, will open six new residential homes for 30 OLW clients. Proceeds from this year’s benefit exceeded $75,000. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY KATHRYN RIDDLE
