On behalf of myself and the Ravenna Creates Art on Main Event Team, I would like to thank the Northeast Ohio Community for its generous support of this year's event. Its success is due to our generous individual and corporate Patrons.

We are grateful to the many professional artists who shared their talents with us, the musicians who provided art in its audible form, and the wineries who provided an opportunity for wine tasting.

A special thank you to the participating Portage County schools and their staffs who displayed student art from their districts and for their encouragement of art, creativity, and imagination of our students.

An undertaking such as this would not be possible without its community volunteers who happily stepped forward to make this event a success: Tony Badalamenti, Julie Piccione Beach, Dominic Bellino, Jon Casteel, Chanelle Casteel, Steven Farhat, Mary Jo Hanna, Rick Hawksley, Michelle Kairis, James Knight, Susan Locke, Debbie Mann, Angie Reedy, Katie Smith, Mike Tontimonia and Zelos Wright.

Finally, I would like to thank my team whose spirit, perseverance, and hard work made the event an enjoyable experience.

We look forward to repeating our success next year!
