Important information you need to know before heading to the Sports Dinner

Dear Friend,

We are pleased you are planning to attend the Shaw JCC’s 15th Annual Sports Dinner – Thursday, June 8 – featuring Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan! Just a reminder this year’s event is taking place at Canal Park located at 300 South Main St. in downtown Akron. Click here for directions.

When you arrive to Canal Park, please park in the State Street Deck and bring your parking pass with you so it can be validated. Look for the yellow parking signs.

The Sports Dinner will be held rain or shine as the entire event will be held under cover. Dress is business casual.

Registration and check-in open at 5:30 p.m. We ask that you enter at the Game Grill + Bar located on Main Street where Shaw JCC staff will be on-hand to greet you. Guests will be treated to cocktail hour with open bar from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. before remarks begin at 6:40 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m.

Following dinner, we invite you to bid on several exciting auction items including a Kyrie Irving autographed basketball, Francisco Lindor autographed framed photo and a Corey Kluber autographed baseball. This year, we will continue to host a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Shaw JCC. Tickets are 1 for $10 or 3 for $20. You may be the lucky winner to go home with half of the raffle’s net proceeds or other great prizes!

If you have any questions, please call Jody Faught at 330-835-0025 or email

Thank you and see you at the ballpark!

Michael Neumann

Shaw JCC Executive Director
