The Ohio City Games is  a free family-friendly field day at St. Ignatius Field in Ohio City, that inspires kids to be active during the Summer while connecting local leaders in business, non-profit, police and firefighters to have fun and play games with kids.  This is the 5th annual event and we are asking for $2500 in funds to continue to build on the successes from last year.  The event was founded by local resident and owner of a local yoga and wellness studio, Theresa Gorski who has secured a committed team each year with board leader Fred Mowery,  board members Lisa East from St. Ignatius school, Katrina Blatt Local parent, and Greg Harris local resident and community enthusiast.  The team is joined this year by newer local resident and  Volunteer Coordinator Lydia Ottaviano.  

We have received past grant funding for supplies such as our tents, games, and walkie talkies, however these programs are hard to count on and time consuming to achieve. We have the bare minimum funds to put on the event, but we want to keep doing things that were successful and add more programming and niceties that make it special.    We purchase fresh fruit from the West Side Market for each participant to have a snack, OCG t-shirts for the kids to keep the spirit alive all year, payment for Recess a local business that brings in blow up games and equipment, and a new speaker system so that we do not need to rent one each year.  Our total ask for this years Games is $2500.  Any Additional funds raised will go towards 2019 : ) 

The kids that we reach out to are local Cleveland children and families across affluence to bring whole communities together.   

The Event is Saturday June 30th 2018 and we are looking to secure funds by June 5th.  

We are all volunteers and usually need 20 people to put the event on, but have had up to 55 volunteers in year's past.  We accept no money personally from the proceeds and work each year to put this day event on because we love our community and are committed to connecting the youth with programs that will inspire, engage, and connect generations and community leaders.  Please help us deepen the community roots that bring us all together.30119746_15271746220_r.jpeg30119746_15271746450_r.jpeg30119746_15271746760_r.jpeg30119746_15271747040_r.jpeg30119746_15271747290_r.jpeg30119746_15271747690_r.jpeg30119746_15271748040_r.jpeg30119746_15271748560_r.jpeg30119746_15271748860_r.jpeg www.ohiocitygames.com
