HUGS for Families benefit Feb. 20 at BAYarts

On Saturday, Feb. 20, 6p.m., the HUGS Foundation will host a benefit at BAYarts to support their mission of helping families of chemically dependent adolescents in Northeast Ohio.

Catered by Sweet Melissa’s, the evening will feature heavy hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, silent auction, art show, plus a special honor to Monica Robins of WKYC-TV for her help in raising awareness of the drug and heroin epidemic.

HUGS, which stands for Hope, Understanding, Gratitude and Serenity, provides funds for treatment, travel and ancillary services not covered by insurance benefits.

Since 2008 HUGS has helped over 200 families and demand for its services continues. This is why success for the benefit is very important.

“We encourage people to come enjoy. Our goal is simple – have a fun event, honor a special person, and raise money to help kids get healthy.”

Tickets are $50 each and can be purchased by sending a check to Dianne Vogt, 12700 Lake Ave. #2106, Lakewood, OH 44107, online at or by calling Dianne at 216 521-5568.
