Athletes+Causes Cleveland is a wonderful celebration of the charitable work of Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco, former Indians and current Blue Jays pitcher Joe Smith, and CBS Sports reporter Allie LaForce.
This star-studded event will include great food, wine, drinks, and silent auction in an intimate setting with plenty of one-on-one interactions with local professional athletes and celebrities. Funds raised will benefit the Carlos Carrasco Foundation‘s support of early childhood education, and Joe and Allie’s Help Cure HD Foundation which helps families affected by Huntington’s Disease easier by contributing financial, emotional, and mental support while trying to find a cure. The event’s proceeds will also support OhioGuidestone, which provides pathways for growth, achievement and lifelong success to help children, families and communities become stronger; and Cleveland Clinic‘s Huntington’s Disease research.

We are excited to once again present what has become a can’t-miss, first-class fundraising event. The 4th annual Athletes + Causes event will be held on Friday, February 24th. This intimate cocktail reception will celebrate the charitable causes that our local professional athletes are most passionate about—all of which share a common theme of improving the lives of children by supporting efforts that protect, educate, mentor and instill hope. The event will include great food, wine and drinks in an intimate setting that allows for plenty of one-on-one interaction with athletes and local celebrities.
Our hosts and our mission have always brought out great sports celebrities to support the youth-‐related charities.
