 Shoes and Clothes for Kids
“Luau on the Lake”



            When there’s a guy who looks like he might be a football player and he’s wearing a grass skirt, you’ll know you’re in the right place — Luau on the Lake to benefit Shoes and Clothes for Kids.
    Held at the breezy Wendy Park on Whiskey Island on a perfect July day, the organization’s associate board’s sixth annual event continues to be the Big Kahuna of great parties and raising about $10,000.
    Overlooking Lake Erie, most of the more than 530 guests were prepared for the festivities with lawn chairs and blankets, drinking tropical cocktails. They also got the note about the dress code — Hawaiian theme — beach/casual.
    Eric Shroyer, the limbo King, who won the contest last year, was a hoot. There also was dancing, a fabulous raffle of gift baskets, corn hole, tropical drinks and watching the sun set.
    Aramark provided the island-style buffet that featured sweet-and-sour chicken, pork, a green salad with oranges and coconut, among other delights. The hit of the party though was the sorbet, in flavors like mango, pineapple and coconut.
    Aloha Sponsors were Aable Rents & Co., CBS Radio, Deloitte, Forest City Enterprises, and Frantz Ward LLP.
    This year, the organization will distribute new clothing and Payless shoe gift cards with a retail value of nearly $2 million to more than 25,000 children from income-eligible families, according to Executive Director Valerie McCormack. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALI McSHERRY
