UPDATE: Ticket sales have closed. See all of you heroes and heroines this Saturday!
Fight crime and have a great time!
Everyone has a superhero inside of them waiting to be discovered. Here’s your chance to unlock your inner Hulk. LakewoodAlive will host Loving Lakewood: Superheroes Unite sponsored by Cleveland Property Management Group on Saturday, February 24, from 7:30 to 11 p.m. at the Lakewood Masonic Temple. Guests are heroically invited to assume their secret identities and defend the universe at LakewoodAlive’s annual winter fundraiser for a powerfully good time in a historic Downtown Lakewood venue.
Ticket sales for Superheroes Unite have closed. Proceeds will support LakewoodAlive’s programming as we strive to foster and sustain vibrant neighborhoods in Lakewood. Much like heroes, we at LakewoodAlive are ordinary people who work with the wonderful residents of Lakewood to accomplish extraordinary feats.
Superheroes Unite will feature superhero-themed food, drinks, décor and entertainment. Attendees will be flying high to consume festive foods from the “Truth, Justice and the Lakewood Way” food stations, sample a «Superman's Cape» cocktail, enjoy music and partake in games and activities fit for a true superhero.
A $100 VIP ticket (SOLD OUT) includes all General Admission ticket offerings plus early entrance at 6:30 p.m., open bar for the first hour, two drink tickets, a special VIP menu, a free limited-edition Superheroes Unite t-shirt and access to a complimentary caricature artist.
A $50 General Admission ticket gains you entrance to the Lakewood Masonic Temple at 7:30 p.m., where you’ll receive unlimited food, one drink ticket, the ability to purchase a limited-edition Superheroes Unite t-shirt and access to all the superhero-inspired fun, including games, a contest and special visitors.
No matter which option you choose, you’ll be fighting crime while having a great time. Attending superheroes are urged to don their cape, web-shooters and tights for one of those memorable LakewoodAlive nights. Bravery, alter egos and superhuman strength are strongly encouraged. Feel free to show your courage and dress as someone who represents an honorable hero within your own life.
More details regarding Superheroes Unite will be unveiled in the coming weeks. For ongoing updates, please visit LakewoodAlive.org/Superhero.

Not all heroes wear capes. At LakewoodAlive we don’t possess superhuman powers, yet we strive to serve a heroic role in the lives of Lakewood residents in need through our Housing Outreach Program. Our villain is anything that stands in the way of community vibrancy. The 5.5 square miles comprising Lakewood is our Gotham City, and we take our duties very seriously. In the immortal words of Wolverine, we aim to be “the best there is at what we do.”
