Thank you to Everyone at The Littlest Heroes 4th Annual Bowling Event!

We are extremely grateful for everyone who participated or sponsored The Littlest Heroes 4th Annual Bowling Fundraiser!  This year we honored Brecksville locals, Brent and Lauren Ramer.  The Ramer’s are a kind, genuine family who has been battling cancer for over 10 years with two of their four children.  While they have been dealt a rough hand, they are some of the friendliest people and we are honored to be able to help them in their travels for treatment!   It was truly magical to see a community come together to help their neighbors in a time of need.
