This Giving Tuesday, Courtney Covers Cleveland wanted to do something BIG! After just one week of planning, that’s  that’s exactly what I did. With the help and support of the community, I was able to raise $11,700 to Give Back to Ginn! Ginn Academy is a place that inspires me to my core. I love to walk through the halls and to talk to the students not just about their…

  • Who’s ready for the #CourtneyCoversCleveland private screening of Bad Boys 3 tonight? After filling the first theater at 140, I moved to the larger one and still have 10 seats open! If you don’t a ticket you still have time. .
.
The last time I rented the theater was for the Adults Only Viewing of Lion King, which as you can see was a good time!
.
.
Renting the theater is an easy way for us to come together and do something fun, while also supporting certain films. So far I’ve done highly anticipated releases, but I plan to be more intentional in supporting minority casts and filmmakers! In June, I will rent the theater again for the movie SOUL- so parents be ready! .
.
As always thanks to all those who support me, looking forward to having some fun this evening!
  • After posting about Cleveland’s first Instagram museum @winterwondercleveland I had a lot of people inquire about the price! Well... for the next three weeks that it’s open (it will close January 26th) you can use code “COURTNEY” to receive 50% off of the ticket price! .
.
That’s a huge savings! Take advantage of that AWESOME deal and take your friends or kiddies for a good time! .
.
Not only is this something cool to do, but it’s an easy way to support Cleveland’s Creative community! Jason brought something different to Cleveland and it’s something we should support! #courtneycoverscleveland #thingstodoincle #instagrammuseum #thisiscle #visitmeincle #cleveland cle #clevelandinfluencer #clevelandblogger
  • Last night I had the pleasure of attending The @cleveorch 40th annual free concert in celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. .
.
I’ve honestly been wanting to go to this event for yearssss but its always SOLD OUT. For the first time, thanks to #CourtneyCoversCleveland I was able to attend as a member of the press.
.
.
The night began with a presentation of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Awards (given to individuals who have positively impacted Cleveland in the spirit of Dr. King) Congresswoman @repmarciafudge Rev. Dr. Joan Brown Campbell, Betty Pinkney and Margaret Mitchell were all winners. After watching their video, I was truly inspired by the work they’ve done and continue to do. I was reminded that change comes from within and that we have more work to do as a community!!
.
.
The concert started with Amazing Grace and ended with everyone standing to sing Life Every Voice and Sing. The Orchestra and Chorus were both amazing! I also thought it was cool that throughout the performance there were video montages and audio excerpts featuring Dr. King. Special moments of him in Cleveland and President Kennedy speaking at the City Club right after his assassination were also included. .
.
It was a great night to support the arts in #Cleveland and a great start to celebrating Dr. Kings legacy. Make sure next Monday you make it a day on and not a day off! Volunteer your time, or attend one of the many events hosted by  @naacp_cleveland if you want to get your kids out, all the museums will be FREE! There’s so many options just do something!
