The Golden Age Centers of Greater Cleveland
“You’re the Top — Golden Achievement Awards”



        The Golden Age Centers of Greater Cleveland celebrated the lifelong achievements of seven worthy individuals at its You’re the Top event held at The Country Club in Pepper Pike.
    Honorees included: Business: Charles Ratner; Community Service: Jane and Lee Seidman; Education: Allan Bellin: Gerontology: Paul E. Alandt; Medicine: Dr. William Ruschhaupt; The Arts: Martha Towns; and Sport Legends: Joe Tait.
    The silent auction raised funds for GAC’s group and home-delivered meal programs. “Serving individuals who would otherwise be invisible,” remarked emcee Dr. Michael Rozien. Bridget Montana, GAC Board President was more precise: the program provides 288,000 meals to frail, lower-income adults in the community.
    Commenting on his award, Chuck Ratner referred to the commandment to “honor thy mother and father.” It’s important, he said, to care of those who took care of you. Allan Bellin added his own life lesson: be well and be kind. The Seidmans were introduced as having “names synonymous with generosity.” Martha Towns, former “Currents” editor, expressed her pride in journalism as a means to do the right thing. But the biggest laugh came from fan-favorite Joe Tait, who said he felt like the “toy department” in a fancy department store. The delightful evening ended on Joe’s legendary sign-off: “Have a good night, everybody!” STORY BY LINDA McMULLEN/PHOTOGRAPHS BY ROB WETZLER
