Cleveland's Got Sole

I made my first trip to Cleveland this weekend.  I woke up at 4 am on Friday morning, picked up 3 friends and drove 8 hours west for Cleveland's Got Sole.  This was the 2nd time around for this event and it was a huge success for the people that took the time and effort to put it together.  The event raised money for the LeBron James Family Foundation, which sponsors family events to promote education and fitness.  The event raised over $5,000 for the charity.

The mood was set by DJ Terry Urban spinning while vendors and collectors sold and displayed sneakers, tees and other sneaker related goods.

The Cleveland Cavaliers donated items to be raffled and auctioned off in support of CGS.  Items included player exclusive sneakers from Jamario Moon and Anthony Parker, an autographed Shaquille O'neal jersey and Akron Skills Academy basketball shoes.  Local boutiques and brands also donated t-shirts, stickers, gift cards and other sneakers.  There was plenty given away to lucky winners.  I even won an autographed pair of Kirk Heinrich Olympic player exclusive shoes!

Thanks to the entire Cleveland's Got Sole team.  Special thanks are in order for Kevin and Andrew.  Catch them on twitter: @ClevlndsGotSole
