Red Cross Bash

The American Red Cross of Stark County BASH was held in April at the MAPS Air Museum. The event was a fundraiser to support the American Red Cross’ local programs, and it raised more than $78,000. Kim Kroh is the chapter executive of the Stark County chapter. Aristea Tzouloufis is a major gifts officer for the Red Cross. Holly Davies and Missy Pitinii were co-chairmen on the event board. Laura Mann is the chairman of the board for Stark County.

yStark! Wear & Share

Ystark! recycled its own thought and did it again, with more than 10 dozen fashionistas at the Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography. Wear & Share, an upcycle fashion show, challenged 11 local designers to convert their Goodwill treasures into runway fashions. The evening included shopping, a fashion show, competition, the Goodwill Challenge and charitable fun. The event is hosted by ystark! and Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio. This sustainable event was sponsored by B.Zimmerman Law.
