Canton Museum’s Marketing and Events Manager, Danielle Attar was a guest on the Gary Rivers Show Monday morning and talked about their Saturday evening gala.

The Canton Museum of Art and the Canton HeART Guild presented their 2019 gARTen event, “Polynesian Paradise”, on the Cultural Center for the Art’s lanai, Saturday, August 24th from 7pm – 12am.

While the figures aren’t yet in they raised a long of money that night through their auction, to help the Canton Museum of Art’s exhibitions and educational programs that reach over 44,000 people each year.  Guests enjoyed live entertainment, art, music, themed food from over 25 local restaurants, cocktails, live/silent auction items and so much more!

Gary Rivers took his show to Berea at the Cleveland Browns training camp on Monday morning.

Here are a few photographs from the field. Can you name these players?

With Legendary sportscaster Al Michaels calling the plays, the 2019 Hall of Fame game got underway at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium Thursday evening in Canton.  The Broncos beat the Falcons 14-10 in a game marred by typical pre-season dropped passes and a fumbled punt or two.

The game included a local guy.  Marlington’s Dymonte Thomas, who was an undrafted free agent back in 2017, plays for the Denver Broncos–which could explain the over-abundance of Denver fans in the stadium—who led the crowd in several “waves” throughout the game.

WHBC’s Gary Rivers was there to see the Canton Bluejackets perform at half-time.  They put on a truncated version of their competitive Beatles-themed show for the crowd and didn’t disappoint.

The NFL season is officially underway.  The regular season will begin on Sept. 5.

Next up for the Hall of Fame, the Gold Jacket Dinner tonight.
