The Dark Portrait Series by James Douglas celebrates those from all walks of life who champion Cleveland in their own right every single day. From the outside, Cleveland can appear gritty and downtrodden. But under the surface, Cleveland has always been a serious town with serious aspirations. We are loyal, but we do not forget. We earn our way, taking nothing for granted. We have lost, but we are resilient. We are not weak; together we are a force with which to be reckoned.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank
