If you’ve been to the restaurant in the past 6-8 weeks between 5-6pm, you’ve no doubt heard me talk about my granddaughter. Her name is Felice Mueller, a Cleveland native, and she’s competing in the olympics in Rio soon on our rowing team in the pair. I’m so proud of her I just had to send out an email to everyone, inviting you all to the restaurant on Friday, August 12th for an evening of great food and olympics coverage.
That will be the women’s pair rowing finals and victory ceremony with Great Britain’s team posing the only real challenge. Even if she wasn’t my granddaughter, I’d still be inspired by her hard work and accomplishment. Getting to the olympics is no easy task and she isn’t the only Ohio-native who’s competing this year for the USA.
We have to encourage our youth to strive for things because a lot of the time and for far too many, achievement seems out of reach. That’s why we’re partnering with the Cleveland Rowing Foundation to co-host the event with us and donating a portion of our sales for the day to them for their 2016 Bow Ball Fundraiser in order to help local youth who’ve a passion for rowing, just like my granddaughter.
