Wine in the Holidays 2015 Logo

A Delightful Evening to Support KCDC

Enjoy the magic and splendor of our 12th Annual Wine in the Holidays event at Puritas Nursery, transformed for us from an historical retail garden center into a party place filled with sparkling lights and holiday decor. From 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 3, why not sparkle just as brightly as the holiday lights? Whether you are more about subtle shine or glamorous glitter, dress comfortably or chic and shake off the winter chills by joining the fun at 19201 Puritas Avenue

Pleasures of the palate bloom fully "under glass" at our only fundraiser of the year. Select among six wines and a choice of specialty beers. Indulge in heavy hors d'oeuvres from our caterer AMP 150, the fine farm-to-table restaurant inside the Marriott Hotel on West 150th Street. Hear the strains of a live combo providing just the right mix of upbeat and relaxed music to set the mood for the evening. Let the child in you enjoy the twelve sets of trains traveling through the live greenery at this adult event.

Bring your friends and make new ones while supporting your neighborhood.

Reservations for this KCDC fundraiser are $45 per person in advance. Make yours here or by calling 216-252-6559, ext. 1000. When you purchase tickets, your name will appear on our RSVP list, which will be checked off as you enter the greenhouse on Thursday night.

Many thanks to our generous sponsors AMP 150, Public House, Puritas Nursery, and Rocksolid Stone Works. Proceeds will be used to continue the revitalization of Kamm's Corners and West Park.

Winter Wonderland Returns to Kamm's Corners

Join the fun under the clock at 6 p.m. on Friday, December 4, as friends and neighbors gather for a mini-concert and sing along under the stars. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making Kamm's Corners one of their first stops -- arriving on the corner of Rocky River Drive and Lorain Avenue as the Academy Chorale of St. Joseph Academy performs a capella. Everyone will be invited to join in singing crowd favorites.

Sip hot chocolate provided by the West Park Kiwanis Club and enjoy the cremonial turning on of the lights, too. The singing continues until Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive from the north by horse-drawn sleigh! They'll leave the sleigh behind to greet the families assembled there. And, with his bells jingling, Santa will lead everyone to Kamms Plaza.

May the force awaken us at this Star Wars themed Winter Wonderland! The evening runs until 8:30 p.m. Meet and greet your favorite Star Wars characters while Santa and Mrs. Claus pose for instant photos with children. Free comic books will be given away by Carol & John's Comic Book Shop. Face painters and a balloon twister add to the fun. Popcorn, cookies, pretzel light sabers, hot chocolate, and cider will be served by volunteers of the St. Joseph Academy Key Club. Peace, Love, & Little Donuts will offer their colorful sweet treats.

There will be a Chinese raffle and valuable door prizes, including several flat screen TVs and two large gift baskets. The drawing is for adults only, and raffle ticket holders must be present to win. This free event is sponsored by Kamms Plaza Shopping Center with the support of KCDC.

Santa and Mrs Claus
Sleigh rides around Kamms Plaza are set for that night and continue free of charge on Friday, December 11 and 18. The complimentary sleigh rides depart from the tower corner at 6 p.m. with the last trip leaving around 7:40 p.m. Heavy rain or ice will cause the rides to be cancelled. Bunde up and enjoy this family friendly treat!

The Kamm's Corners Summer Arts & Entertainment Series

Presenting a wide breadth of musical, visual, and culinary arts at our family friendly events, the Kamm's Corners Summer Arts and Entertainment Series launches with The Hooley on Kamm's Corners and continues weekly throughout the summer at our Kamm's Corners Farmers Markets every Sunday from June through October. See the flyer. It is also a feature of Asphalt Cinema, a free outdoor movie evening on the third Fridays of June, July, and August at Impett Park. See the flyer.

We are grateful for the volunteer work of the many residents and business owners who take part in planning and running these events, making the series such a great success! To become involved, please e-mail marilyn.osborne@kammscorners.com or call 216-252-6559, ext. 1600.

We appreciate support from our generous sponsors such as Fairview Hospital in helping to pay for the Summer Arts & Entertainment Series.

In addition, we thank the residents of Cuyahoga County for supporting this program through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

Funding from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture is different from our other funders because Cuyahoga County residents voted in 2006 to create this agency to fund the amazing arts and culture in our community with local tax dollars. KCDC is pleased to be among the groups funded in 2015.
