Boomer Bash West – We Had a Blast, Hope You Did, Too

With more than 350 attendees, 68 vendors, live music and cocktails, our spring Boomer Bash at LaCentre in Westlake was not only a rousing success, it was a lot of fun, too.

Turns out Westsiders know how to party. We combined entertainment with education and ended up with a terrific Boomer Bash West that was tailor-made for our enthusiastic readers. If you missed it, we’ve got you covered; we’re returning to the Eastside this fall for another Bash. Check out our website, newsletter and Facebook page for details later this summer.

We want to give a special shout-out to our Bash sponsors: The Normandy Senior Living, Greater Cleveland Volunteers, MaxStrength Fitness, LaCentre Conference and Banquet Facility and The WAVE Cleveland’s Smooth FM.

In the meantime, here’s a video and photo wrap up.

By the way, raffle ticket proceeds benefitted Greater Cleveland Fisher House, and we presented a check to the group shortly after the Bash. The foundation recently broke ground for the first of two Cleveland houses that will serve family members of veterans who are receiving treatment at the Louis Stokes VA Center.

See you in the fall.
