    I think this centennial gala will be fantastic.  What a great celebration.  I will say though (In a snarky voice) I don’t want to hear how bad the economy is in Cleveland when even the second round of $250 gala tickets sold out.  If tons of people can afford that then they can continue supporting local restaurants and stores.
