Coach Sam’s 2019 Cleveland Legends Event was a resounding success, as hundreds of fans joined us for an evening full of amazing live music, great speeches, wonderful moments, tributes, big auction winners & much more!

Three of the top football coaches in Ohio were honored as coaches of the year:

Coach Rick Finotti (John Carroll University)
Coach Jeff Grubich (Kenston High School)
Tom Lombardo (St. Edward’s High School)

Two Cleveland Legends, Austin Carr from the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Beachwood High School Wrestling Coach, Domenick Iammarino we honored and recognized for their contributions to the Cleveland community. Cleveland Browns Head Coach, Freddie Kitchens joined us for the VIP Reception. 

We were entertained by upcoming Cleveland Legend, Chelsea Trullie who performed a rousing rendition of “Fight Song” and “The Climb.”

Amazing auction items were bid on and won and the audience had a chance to participate in a donation competition between the Cleveland sports teams to determine the winner, with all proceeds providing educational support to at-risk children through a combination of literacy,
personal development, and health and fitness programs designed to develop the whole child. We would like to thank everyone who participated in our Legends Event this year, and making it a success; we couldn’t have done it without your support!
