Maple Leaf's "Raise-a-Roof" Fifth Annual Benefit Dinner and Auction.

CHESTERLAND, Ohio -- Maple Leaf Community Residences (www.mlcri.org) will be holding its Fifth Annual "Raise-a-Roof" (RAR) Benefit Dinner and Auction on Wednesday, September 30th. The Event, which raises money to provide housing for mentally and physically challenged citizens, will be held at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven, 6111 Landerhaven Drive, Mayfield Heights.

All proceeds from the "Raise-a-Roof" Event benefit the Residents of Maple Leaf Community Homes. According to Keith Werbeach, Program Manager of Maple Leaf, "Many of our Residents can no longer live at home due to the advanced age or death of their parents. We alleviate some of these families' worries by providing this housing opportunity with supervised care. It is imperative Maple Leaf expand to meet the demands as our population continues to grow and age." Maple Leaf currently owns 15 houses and one condominium, housing a total of approximately 56 residents, and over 200 still await a house to call home.

The "Raise-a-Roof" Event begins at 6 p.m. and will have a Jazz at the Harvest Moon Theme featuring smooth, Classic Jazz by 4 Composer Tour with vocalist Suzanne Gibson, Buzz Cronquist on woodwinds, Phil Anderson and Garin Wiss (in memoriam) on keyboards, Tony Eble on Guitar/Bass and a big beat by Jason Little.

New this year, Bob Hale will energize our Event with a live auction for extended stays at The Villages near Ocala and Casa Bella on Westshore (Gulf Coast).
