We applaud their willingness to share their belief in entrepreneurship education, and their sincerity in thanking all of the volunteers and donors who made their entrepreneurship education meaningful and possible.

Thanks also go to our Cleveland Social Venture Partner volunteers, who coached the students through the distribution of pledge cards and sale of raffle tickets.  Their efforts proved effective- over $30,000 in gifts were made to E CITY that morning!

MORE thanks are extended to our breakfast sponsors, Mellon and Ernst & Young, who made it possible for us to provide the breakfast at no charge to our guests.


If you missed the breakfast, mark your calendars now for next year’s event- Monday, May 7, 2007!  You’ll be very happy that you started your week with us!
