Rotary Youth Exchange Students from Northeast Ohio District 6630 and 6650 were welcomed at Quicken Loans Arena Thursday night, February 21, with an exciting Fan Experience Package that included commemorative T-shirts, a half time trip through the tunnel and recognition on center court.

The well-attended, pre-game private reception, with a dinner buffet and raffle, was hosted by The Clevelander Bar & Grill and organized by Past District Governor Stew Buchanan. District Governor Beverly Ghent-Skrzynski assisted in handing out prizes and leading the cheer - GO CAVS! It must have worked because our Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Phoenix Suns 111 to 98.

Rotary Youth Exchange Students cheered, "Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Rock!"
