Monsters Drop Gloves, Lace Up Aprons

This week, the entire Monsters team took up a new profession for a few hours. After practice, the team traded in gloves and sticks in favor of aprons and serving trays.

Partnering with Local Heroes Grill and Bar on East 9th Street in downtown Cleveland, the players waited on more than 250 guests and raised more than $5,000 for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lorain County. For more than two hours, the players served food and drinks, bussed tables and washed dishes to raise money all to help out the Clubs.

“You definitely have a new appreciation for people who serve food,” said rookie Justin Mercier. “I was just trying to find a set of silverware and I couldn’t even do that.”

The Boys & Girls Clubs, located in Lorain County, are known as “The Positive Place For Kids,” with a mission of helping at-risk boys and girls develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. The Clubs of Lorain County provide a safe haven, adult role models, and a variety of programs that support the educational, emotional, physical, and social development of youth, without regard to social, racial, ethnic, or religious background.

“It’s all for a good cause, and to get out in the community and do this is fun,” said forward Randy Rowe.
