Recess Cleveland Cocktails for a Cause
Join us for Cocktails for a Cause at Dive Bar Friday April 14th at 8:30-11:30. Each ticket includes food buffet, draft beer, well drinks, photo booth and raffle entry.
Your donation to Recess Cleveland directly supports our mission of bringing families and community members together promoting physical activity and the development of positive emotional and social skills in areas of the city that lack positive recreational environments. We’ll have contests, team games and individual activities for people of all ages and abilities! Our programs this summer will provide 50 free recess events in 5 neighborhoods across the city growing our impact to over 1,000 children. Donated funds help us offer healthy snacks and refreshments at our events as well as supervision for safe, inclusive places to play.
Social Impact: Research shows there is a direct correlation between physical activity and an overall positive, healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, there is also a direct correlation between impoverished neighborhoods, minorities and a lack of options for physical activity. Only 61% of African-American students get recess at school as compared to nearly 85% of white students. Neighborhoods with high rates of minorities and low incomes are the least likely to have resources to provide physical activity to its residents. Recess Cleveland changes all that with your help!
