Avon Lake Waterfront Corporation is a non-profit organization formed in 2012. The organization's purpose is to showcase and support local businesses. The annual Waterfront Wine Festival is the main fundraiser.
This year's Waterfront Wine Festival is proudly benefiting Smiles for Sophie Forever, a Foundation supporting Pediatric Brain Cancer. This foundation was started by Mark and Emily Quayle to honor the memory of their daughter Sophie by providing financial support to families dealing with pediatric brain cancer. They also provide financial support to St. Jude and other organizations committed to the treatment of pediatric brain cancer. More information can be found at: www.smilesforsophieforever.org
