2018 CLEVELAND OUT OF DARKNESS FUNDRAISER
It’s that time again; our annual Chinese Auction this year will be benefitting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We are reaching out to our friends that have helped us in the past as well as new friends that we hope will join us. Last year our team raised over $5,000 for the Out of Darkness Walk held at Wade Oval (University Circle) in Cleveland. Of course, this year we have set our goal a bit higher – our 2018 goal is $10,000 and with your help we can make it.
On Saturday August 18, 2018, join a fundraiser for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide. The Out of the Darkness Walk (an AFSP signature event) will again be held in University Circle on October 20, 2018.
Our fundraiser will be held at Lakeland Community College (Breakers Cafeteria) located in Kirtland, OH. We have the power to help fight the stigma against mental health and bring awareness. You have the power to help.

The Borgen Project
It can seem like foreign aid isn’t making a dent in the problem of global poverty and that sickness and poverty around the world are unbeatable problems. But in the past 20 years, the number of malnourished people has been cut in half, there are more children in school now than at any time in history, and in the past five years HIV/AIDS mortality has been reduced by 30%, meaning it is no longer the leading cause of death in Africa. Huge strides are being made everyday that move all of us forward – like the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (in Congress now) which seeks to end preventable deaths of mothers and children around the world in the next 15 years!
The Borgen Project is a national nonprofit organization that fights global poverty through education, mobilization, and advocacy. We are volunteers from all over the country working in our own communities to change the global community. We raise awareness on the important issues of poverty around the world and the things that are being done to stop them – like the Reach Every Mother and Child Act – and mobilize our communities around the country to take part in a national movement to prioritize reducing global poverty in our nation’s foreign policy. To learn more and find ways to become a Borgen Project volunteer or take action as a community partner, visitborgenproject.org. Together we can downsize poverty.
PARA-X Ghost Hunt at the Lake County History Center at 415 Riverside Dr., Painesville Twp., Ohio 44077
From the 19th to 21st century, the ex-county poorhouse (now our history Museum), has given shelter to numerous residents, both wicked and benign. Orphans, the injured and criminals have all had a role in sculpting the history of this grand building. Enter our labyrinthine halls for an intense wander through the rooms and into usually restricted spaces. Follow guides as you linger in hotspots of spiritual activity like the old infirmary and the foreboding cells in the basement. Try to draw out the lingering, ghostly occupants, both charming and terrifying! Whether you are new to ghost hunting or a seasoned investigator, there’s something to find in our unlit corridors
Watch and learn how to operate various forms of ghost hunting equipment from EMF detectors to voice recorders. Have your own tools like a flashlight or cellphone. Bring them along and see what you can capture.
Cost:$40 per ticket limited to the first 40 people who register! No refunds. We accept cash, check or credit card
