We always ROCK it!!

The Music Box Supper Club was rocking Saturday, February 10th during the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation's signature fundraiser, Rock the Foundation 13! Nearly 500 guests came out to eat, drink, and dance the night away. Transportation Blvd. helped kick start a great VIP Reception where the third annual Richard W. Pogue Award for Excellence in Community Leadership & Engagement was awarded to Frank Sullivan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RPM International, Inc. Following the award presentation, Nitebridge returned to the main stage and rocked the house while acoustic guitarist Nate Jones provided a great vice and nice quiet getaway for downstairs guests. Signature cocktails, Love Potion #13, Hurricane Mitch, and the traditional Old Fashioned were consumed, and great raffle prizes were won! The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation raised over $200,000 at this year's Rock 13.

Rock the Foundation benefits the Lawyers Giving Back community and pro bono legal service programs of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association. These programs promote equal access to justice, diversity and inclusion, law-related education and community service provided by members of our legal community - all of which are critical to strengthening the fabric of our community.
