Rock The Foundation
WE LOVED ROCKING WITH YOU!
On Saturday, February 13, 2021 the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation (CMBF) celebrated it signature event, the 16th Annual Rock the Foundation! The event streamed live into the homes of nearly 500 of attendees as they enjoyed a different type of Rock from the comfort of their sofas. Many virtual participants took home a party-in-a-box - complete with dinner and drinks from Sausalito Catering - and special treats to enjoy while viewing the virtual event.
And how perfectly fitting that on Valentine's Eve the 2021 Richard W. Pogue Award for Excellence in Community Leadership & Engagement was presented to a couple for the first time! Lee Fisher, Dean of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, and Peggy Zone Fisher, President and CEO of the Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio will received the 6th Annual Pogue Award.

It was a perfect night of celebrating the Foundation's donors and volunteers and our love for those supported by the Foundation.
