Middleburg Heights Mayor Gary Starr, hosted a “Holiday Evening with Frankie Avalon” this past Saturday, December 14, 2013. All Middleburg Heights residents and their friends were invited to the first ever event of its kind-to raise funds and awareness for the Middleburg Heights Food Pantry.
Members of city council along with city employees and many residents joined in the festivities. The event was held at the elegant cabaret “The Tangier” in Akron, Ohio.
For every ticket purchased, Mayor Starr donated five dollars. The first time event attracted so many guests that the funds raised will be enough to feed families who are in need for approximately one entire month.
Also, many of the guests had an additional holiday surprise and met the superstar, singer and actor, Frankie Avalon, who is a friend of Mayor Starr’s.
