Rock the Foundation is the signature, annual event of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation and - with your help - raises critical financial support for the many innovative and wide-ranging programs funded by the Bar Foundation.  This year we will be celebrating all the reasons we HEART THE FOUNDATION!  As always, the event will feature plenty of great food, an open bar, raffles, and other fun activities making it one of the best parties in Cleveland. Stay tuned for more details!
