Business man and bar owner, Jimmy Salaheddine knows how to make a good cocktail, but his ability to shake, stir and twist will take on a whole new meaning when he steps on stage at Akron Civic Theatre for Akron Children’s Hospital’s 3rd annual “Dancing for the Kids” event Oct. 24.
Emily Patterson turned her deep thoughts, wisdom and experiences since being diagnosed with scoliosis 3 years ago into a piece of art that’s an inspiration to others. The poster, entitled Scoliosis Strong, is a series of encouraging words wrapped around a picture of an S-shaped spine, representing the curve of her own backbone.
More than 80 people filled The Tangier on Oct. 8 for the Style and Stitches Fashion Show. The event was sponsored by the Friends of Akron Children’s Hospital, led by President Madeline Bozzelli.
