Since 1992, this gala event has raised more than $2.7 million for educational enrichment focusing on the arts, technology, health and fitness. This year money raised will go towards the Shaker Schools Foundation's Innovation Fund that focuses on STEAM initiatives which will provide enrichment opportunities for all Shaker students.
History of the Event
A Night for the Red & White was launched in 1992 by a group of parents to raise money for technology enrichment in the Shaker schools. The inaugural event was slated to be held at the new Heinen’s Grocery Store at Shaker Towne Center, but when attendance topped 300 the benefit was moved to the Omni Hotel at to the Cleveland Clinic. The first Red & White raised approximately $42,220 for our students. Over the years, attendance is now more than 700 partygoers, and the event has been held at a variety of locations, including the TRW campus, the Cleveland Browns Stadium, the State Theatre, Landerhaven, the Tudor Arms Hotel, and the Cleveland Hilton Downtown.
