Community Events This Week in Summit County

By Samantha Blair | Sunday, October 8, 2017

This week we are showcasing some of the many ways Summit County comes together as a close-knit community. Whether we’re sharing a meal, working together for a cause or coming together for some yoga, there are always opportunities to have some fun with old friends and meet new faces.

This weekend support the American Red Cross in their disaster relief efforts. Kenosha Steakhouse and Rita’s are hosting Eat.Drink.Give and are donating 5% of all sales to the American Red Cross. Whether you want a quick lunch or a hearty sit down dinner, your purchase can fill you up and give back.
