Salvation Army of Greater Cleveland holds Civic Luncheon fundraiser, honors WKYC’s Leon Bibb

Money raised helped to fund its programs

CLEVELAND — The Salvation Army of Greater Cleveland’s Civic Luncheon was held at the Renaissance Hotel on Friday, and like its Red Kettle Campaign, it raises money for the Army’s programs. This year, it hoped to raise $300,000 from this event.

For more than 142 years, The Salvation Army has worked to improve the quality of life for all those in need and help give men, women and children hope through its programs. It’s a faith-based organization whose mission is to meet human needs without discrimination.

During the luncheon, WKYC’s Leon Bibb received the “Others” Award for being truly a man for others. This year’s William Booth Award went to architect Richard Bauschard.

WKYC was also a proud Hope Sponsor of this event.
