Bay Village Education Foundation to hold annual 'Creating Opportunities' event

The BVEF is ready to set the stage for the finest fundraising event of the year for the Bay schools. Each year, the foundation hosts their “Creating Opportunities” event at Arrabiata’s Italian Restaurant in Bay Village to assist in the funding of annual grant awards. The grants are awarded to teachers in the district that are searching for the means to give wings to their various meaningful, innovative or creative classroom ideas.

Funds raised at this event also are often dedicated to helping to fund other separate special grants, such as those that inspire leadership, studying abroad, and special education support. Therefore, this tremendous night encompasses the idea of “Creating Opportunities” on several different levels for all students of the district as a whole or individually.

This year’s event promises nothing less. The 2015 fundraiser is set for Sunday, Jan. 25, from 5-8 p.m. With a delectable Italian buffet filled with several options and a delicious dessert assortment, philanthropists are assured to be satisfied. Many door prizes, along with several spectacular one-of-a-kind silent auction items, create a special excitement for the cause that is infectious throughout the night and does not disappoint.  

These prize offerings can be accredited to generous sponsorships, of which will be in attendance, and donations from local community businesses and other corporations that wish to lend a hand in this exceptional cause for learning. Also, attendees can enjoy casual or business conversation with friends and many different members of the community while being entertained by the night’s agenda.

Tickets are $60 per person ($30 tax deductible). To purchase, contact the Bay Village Education Foundation by email at or Jacquie Mayer at 216-392-4415 or
