The 13th annual "Mozart's Spring Fundraiser" benefiting the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center will be held Wednesday, May 5.

It will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Mozart's Bakery and Piano Cafe is the biggest business supporter of the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center, according to executive director Bill Owens. Since 1998, owners Anand and Doris Saha have raised more than $140,000 for the CRC.

"Each year attendees enjoy live music provided by the Paul Love Trio, a delicious Mozart's European dinner, fine wines, coffees and Mozart's infamous desserts," Owens said in announcing the event.

Mozart's Cafe is located at 2885 N. High St.

On the 10th anniversary of the spring fundraiser, Anand Saha explained why the bakery began hosting the event in an interview with ThisWeek:

"We live in Clintonville, raised our children here, so we want to do whatever we can to support the community. I feel that everyone should try to do their part to help their community."

Admission to the event is $45 for an individual, $80 for a couple or $250 for a sponsorship, which includes admission for two.

For reservations, call the CRC at 268-3539. Payments may also be mailed to or dropped off at the center, 14 W. Lakeview Ave.

"Your cost of admission is tax-deductible and will help to keep CRC's important programs serving our community," according to Owens.

The Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center serves the needs of the neighborhood by helping people get what they need to live safer, healthier and happier lives, the announcement said.

"Our neighbors are the heart of CRC, citizens, volunteers and social service professionals, partnering to improve the lives of others," Owens said in the announcement. "As the 'go-to' agency for social services, they address fundamental needs, like food, housing, clothing, health and social integration. CRC focuses their efforts on families, seniors and youth.

"Social needs in Clintonville might not be readily apparent, but they exist and they are growing."
