    Greater Cleveland Chapter held a very moving Donor Sabbath in November at Mary Queen of Peace Church. We had a great attendance and the recipients' stories were truly moving. There was food and fellowship afterwards.

    Our After the Holiday Party was in January and we held it at Spennato's in Northfield. About 45 people attended and there was good fellowship.

    In April, we held Movie Night at our local OPO Lifebanc and viewed "Perfect Strangers." It was quite well received, and a meaningful conversation was held afterwards.

    Our Annual Meeting was held in July and the Sam C. Jones Breath of Life Memorial award was presented to Elaine Turley from the Transplant House of Cleveland.

    In August, TRIO Cleveland hosted an educational booth at Lifebanc’s Gift of Life Walk and Run.

    Some upcoming events will include TRIO Sponsoring the Cleveland Clinic Heart Transplant Dinner in September; Our annual fundraiser, to be held at The Porch in downtown Willoughby this October, and our donor sabbath to be held again at Mary Queen of Peace Church in November. 

    Be sure to check our website for the most up to date information.

    Respectfully Submitted,

    Greater Cleveland President,
    Julie Schneider Caldro
