2015, I-X Piston Powered Auto Rama; will Benefit
The Greater Cleveland Fisher House
We are looking forward to another huge turnout this year for the I-X Center’s annual Piston Powered Auto Rama this coming March 20th through 22nd, 2015. This year we are featuring the US Marine Corps 3/25th and Northeast Ohio Recruiters.
All proceeds will benefit The Greater Cleveland Fisher House. A Fisher House, similar to a Ronald McDonald House, is for where military family members to stay free-of-charge while their injured or ill loved one receives treatment, procedures, operations, or rehabilitation. The Goal of the Greater Cleveland Fisher House Organization is to raise $3,000,000 locally with another $3,000,000 from National Fisher House for construction (there are currently 62 houses in operation across the United States, Germany, and England). The new facility will be located one block north of the Louis Stokes VA Hospital in Cleveland, the second largest VA hospital in the United States.
The proposed Greater Cleveland Fisher House will be a 16,500 square foot home with 18 to 21 suites to accommodate up to 42 people. The cost to build the house is $7 million. The goal of the Greater Cleveland Fisher House is to raise half of the money through community fundraising. The Fisher House Foundation will then provide the remaining $3.5 million. Thus far they have raised $2.2 million of the $3m needed. Ground breaking is anticipated Spring/Summer of 2015.
