Medina High School boys lacrosse team gives back

The Medina High School boys lacrosse team hosted its annual pasta dinner fundraiser in January at the Medina Moose Club. Area businesses, including Dan’s Dogs, Santosuossos and Rise Fitness supported the team with donations of food, gift cards and other items to stock baskets for the raffle. The event raised about $8,500, some of which will be used for team apparel, equipment, team building activities and tournament fees. The team also donated money to the family of a former teammate who is battling cancer. The Medina lacrosse family delivered all unused food and serviceable products from the event to the Salvation Army. Fundraiser volunteer and team mom, Kelly Wesner said, “While the event’s primary purpose was to fundraise, it provided an opportunity for our community to support our young adults, it gave our young adults an opportunity to learn the value of giving back to the community, and it allowed all of us to experience a sense of team and community cohesion.”

Kiwanis member honored

The Kiwanis Club of Medina honored Wadsworth attorney Linda Hoffmann, managing partner of Palecek, McIlvaine, Hoffmann & Morse Co. LPA, with a George F. Hixon Fellowship for her ongoing help, generosity, commitment, and inspiration to the local club. In Hoffmann’s honor, a donation of $1,000 was made to the Kiwanis International Foundation. Hoffmann, a resident of Montville Township, championed the Kiwanis Christmas Carol fundraiser the last four years featuring a collaboration of local community leaders, club members, and high school Key Clubs. Proceeds provided winter clothing for over 90 Medina students grades K-12. There are four Kiwanis clubs serving the Medina community and supporting service and leadership opportunities for youth through area K Kids, Builders Clubs, and Key Clubs.
