Lee Imhof with Robert Hobohm and Katie Imhof

On Saturday, March 2, Leadership Geauga honored Lee Imhof as Emerald Leader for his outstanding contributions to Geauga County.
Guests walked the red carpet into Landerhaven, many of them dressed to the Old Hollywood theme. More than 365 attendees meant a record turnout.
The nonprofit’s largest annual fundraiser raised $183,000, including $21,000 to the Foundation for Geauga Parks from the call to the heart portion of the live auction.
Imhof, a longtime Geauga resident, was instrumental in starting Leadership Geauga and served three terms on the Berkshire school board.
Attendees danced the night away to Pieces of Eight after enjoying a chicken and steak dinner and a live auction featuring items like a Bourbon tasting at a lakeside cabin, a trip to Blue Ridge Mountain and more. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANASTASIA NICHOLAS
