Enchanted Evening 2011

Posted Jun 29th, 2011 by Sharon Unkle  Category: Arts & Entertainment


Byrne Stapleton, President of Stapleton Insurance, and his lovely wife Lauren will serve as this year’s Honorary Chairs for the 23rd annual Anne Grady Foundation’s Enchanted Evening which will be held on Sunday, November 6, 2011, at the exquisite Parkway Plaza banquet hall in Maumee.

Joining them in their efforts are this year’s Committee Members Gale Astles, Wendy Austin, Cathy Bazeley, Dr. Stephen Bazeley, Michele Kania McNulty, Wade Kohn, Penny Marks, Laurie Mills, Dr. R. W. Mills, Joanne Ollivier, Carol Stinson, John Stinson, James Whiteman, and Gary Yoder; along with Jerry Anderson and Chrys Peterson, Co-Anchors at Channel 11 WTOL-TV, who will emcee the evening’s events.

The Committee is hard at work getting corporate sponsors; obtaining some extraordinary items for the silent auction; deciding on the menu items with owner George Zilba for the grazing stations; finalizing the Las Vegas raffle as well as the candy jar raffle; and securing this year’s entertainment which will be provided by an all-time area favorite for your listening and dancing pleasure….Hepcat Revival. Complimentary valet parking will be provided for the convenience of the guests.

This year, the funds from this year’s event will be going toward a new 4-bedroom waiver group home. The group home will be called the Walter H. Grady group home in memory of Mr. Grady who passed away last November at the age of 95. Walter and Anne, along with several caring citizens, were the reason Anne Grady is here today; and Walter remained deeply committed and a strong advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities right up until the end.

Byrne and Lauren Stapleton, along with the members of the Honorary Committee encourage the community to join them in “CONTINUING THE DREAM” of Mr. Grady and the other caring parents and folks in the community who started Anne Grady by donating and/or attending this year’s Enchanted Evening. Desirable items for the auction are trips, vacation homes, sports items, restaurant packages, collectibles, etc. Corporate Sponsors are also a great way to get involved. Anyone wishing to donate or wishing to get further information on the event can contact Sharon Unkle at the Anne Grady Center at 419-866-6500, ext. 274.
