The Prohibition Era was the bloodiest period in Cleveland History. Try to keep track of the mob hits as rival gangs brutally battle to control the city’s rackets. Many of the mob leaders didn’t survive the period, a few lived to a ripe old age, and some became respected icons in the community and beyond.
Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, two kids from Glenville High School, created the world’s most enduring Superhero. Meet the original Superman and learn how he was influenced by the boy’s lives in Cleveland!
Dennis and his wife, Mary, have five beautiful grandchildren. Two of their grandsons (Dylan and Sean) have been diagnosed with ataxia-telangiectasia, more commonly known as A-T.
A-T is an extremely rare, genetic disease. A-T causes progressive loss of muscle control, immune system problems and a high rate of cancer. Sean is already a cancer survivor. He was treated for B-cell lymphoma when he was 2 years old.
Because A-T is so rare, it gets little attention and even less funding. The A-T Children’s Project (atcp.org) was started to raise funds for research and life improving therapies for children with A-T.
This highly interactive program will test your knowledge of Cleveland’s hometown heroes. Some of the celebrities are easy to identify, while others present more of a challenge!
Incidentally...none of the pictured celebrities are included in the program. They would be far too easy!
