8th Annual Growing Up Akron

8th Annual Growing Up Akron

On Friday, August 11, Child Guidance and Family Solutions (CG&FS) will host its eighth annual Growing Up Akron fundraiser.

It’s not just another fundraiser. This is Akron. So leave the tux at home and join our Honorary Chairs, Sylvia & Marc Trundle, for a night full of food, fun, and special attractions. Make your reservation to drop by after work and celebrate the spirit of Akron. Don't miss out on Akron icons like Swenson's, Ken Stewart's Grille, Hilton Garden Inn, Mustard Seed Market, NORKA Beverage, and more!

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 $60, and there are several sponsorship opportunities if you would like to support CG&FS while promoting your business or organization.
