Philanthropia 2012
Landerhaven
December 10, 2012

Philanthropia, phil∑an∑thro∑pi∑a, is Executive Caterersí Annual Fundraising Luncheon at Landerhaven designed to benefit non-profits throughout Northeast Ohio. After the tragedy of 9/11, New York City absorbed such a large portion of all charitable donations that many local non-profits struggled to reach their own goals. In response, Executive Caterers rededicated their December Corporate Club luncheon to the support of local charities, especially smaller organizations without substantial resources of their own.

Eleven years later, charities all across our region continue to benefit greatly from Harlan Diamondís marvelously simple idea behind phil∑an∑thro∑pi∑a: the cost of admission is a tax-deductible check in the amount of $75 or more made out to the 501(c)(3) charity of your choice.

Executive Caterers is proud to underwrite the cost of hosting the eventís stimulating program and special lunch so that our local non-profits can enjoy the full value of each donation without incurring any of the expenses usually associated with a fundraising event.

Over a thousand guests pack Landerhaven and over a million dollars has been raised for local non-profits. Learn more about Philanthropia.

Enjoy these images from the 2012 Philanthropia which again included the Singing Angels and MC Leon Bibb.
