A group from Interim Healthcare enjoyed this after-work party.
The 37th annual Sugartown Express, in benefit of the American Diabetes Association, took place Jan. 25 at Quaker Station, raising close to $18,000 for the group. Nearly 200 guests attended the casual, after-work event featuring local business and community “celebrities” serving a traditional menu of pizza, pretzels and hors d’oeuvres. The event featured a silent and live auction, raffles, music and entertainment. New this year, guests enjoyed craft beer sampling from several renowned Northeast Ohio breweries.
Sugartown Express was founded by Madeline and Libert Bozzelli and is the longest consecutively-run ADA fundraising event in the country. Over the past 37 years, the train-themed event has raised over $800,000 to benefit the organization.
