On Friday, August 12, Child Guidance and Family Solutions (CG&FS) will host its seventh annual “Growing Up Akron” fundraiser. If you have attended the event in the past, you know this isn’t your typical fundraiser.

Roxxymoron is back to take the stage again this year, and rock the brewery with their music. Food offerings include Swenson's, Mustard Seed Market, Nuevo Modern Mexican, Retro Dog, Old Carolina, Diamond Deli, Ivan’s Deli, Difeo’s, Tangier, Gino's Pizza, Hilton Garden Inn, Bake at 350 Bakery, Mary Coyle ice cream, A&W Root Beer, Mayfield Road Creamery, Ken Stewart's Grille, Shearer’s and Norka Soda. Remember: It’s not just another fundraiser. This is Akron. So leave the tux at home. Rubber City Roller Girls, Mystery Grab Bags, a Chinese auction and other special attractions will add to the fun. Make your reservation to drop by after work and celebrate the spirit of Akron.

Growing Up Akron is a destination for celebrating our community. Whether you “grew up Akron” or not, there is no better way to spend a summer evening. And what a deal; individuals can attend for $50, and there are several sponsorship opportunities if you would like to support CG&FS while promoting your business or organization.
