Patron Party Sold Out!

Thanks to your incredible generosity, we have SOLD OUT our Patron Party as of Oct. 31, 2018. We will add names to a waiting list in case additional Patron Party tickets become available. To join the waiting list, please call Akron Community Foundation at 330-376-8522.

You can still sponsor the tour and receive the available benefits listed below, but you will receive general admission tickets to the tour instead of Patron Party tickets. (Note: the Sponsor Party has already taken place.)
