WARREN -- Cleveland rock legend Michael Stanley today announced his support for Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership's effort to win $50,000 from the Tom's of Maine ``50 States for Good'' challenge.
"I've been playing gigs in Warren for more than 40 years and have always loved the city. It reminds me a lot of my hometown Cleveland. Both cities have their share of problems but each is also made up of tough people who will never give up," Stanley said.
"I love what TNP and gregg's gardens are doing to create a Garden District in Warren. It could be a very cool neighborhood - Warren's version of Ohio City or Tremont. So get out and vote for TNP and bring home the money," he added.
Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership and gregg's gardens are working with theTrumbull 100 to create a Garden District in Warren's oldest residential neighborhood and to revitalize the central city. Tom's of Maine, a national consumer products marketer, selected TNP as the only non-profit from Ohio to be a part of its "50 States for Good" challenge.
"Being selected for the challenge was awesome in and of itself but having Michael Stanley step up and support us has made this a very exciting challenge for everyone in Warren. This is a real motivator for getting out the vote," TNP Executive Director Matt Martin said.
Voting is open to Facebook members. They may vote every day until the challenge ends on Oct. 15.
