(who grew up in Cleveland Heights), and a discussion on the future of sustainability in the Heights led by community development expert Mark Chupp, Ph.D. of the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University and board member of FutureHeights.

The program will be interspersed with plenty of time for networking and enjoying food and drink from Nighttown. Admission is free; no RSVP is required, but it is appreciated. Attendees can RSVP by via Facebook or Eventbrite. Light refreshments will be provided, and there will be a cash bar.
