Fatima Family Center celebrating 45 Years with Annual Benefit Breakfast November 3
Catholic Charities’ Fatima Family Center will host its annual Fatima Annual Benefit Breakfast Saturday, November 3, at 6600 Lexington Avenue, Cleveland. This year’s theme is “Fulfilling the Legacy.” Fatima Family Center has been serving the community for 45 years.
The event starts at 8 a.m. with breakfast and an auction preview, with a program and live auction beginning at 9 a.m. Harry Boomer, long-time reporter for WOIO Channel 19, will serve as the auctioneer. There will be live music by Cleveland City Councilman Kevin Conwell and the Footprints. There will be a special guest appearance by Josh Cribbs, special teams intern and former standout receiver and kick returner for the Cleveland Browns.
Fatima Family Center received the prestigious FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award (DCLA) this past April in Washington, D.C. DCLA was formally created in 1990 as a way to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts in combating crime, terrorism, drugs and violence in America.
The Center provides programs and services for all ages, including cultural, leadership and development activities for children and youth, homework assistance, summer camp, field trips and recreational programs. Fatima also provides adult services including parenting classes, computer lab, health screenings and food pantry. Older adults can benefit from socialization activities designed specifically for them.
Originally established in 1973 as a pastoral counseling and outreach ministry of Our Lady of Fatima parish, Fatima Family Center prominently anchors the Hough community with a 26,000 square foot facility developed by Catholic Charities and dedicated in 2000. In 2002 Fatima was recognized by the Annie E. Casey Foundation as one of the top five family centers in the United States.
Community members tickets are $25 and corporate tickets are $50 and are available by calling (216) 391-0505.
