Find Susan B. Anthony and Raise Money for the League of Women Voters  of Greater Cleveland

“Where in Ohio is Susan B. Anthony?” is an interactive fundraiser as the pioneer of the women suffrage movement visits sites across Ohio to honor women who have made significant contributions to Ohio and society.

Anthony will be visiting 8 sites now through Tuesday, July 31st.  At each stop, she will provide clues as to where she is and who she is visiting. LWVO will post photos of Susan B. Anthony at each location on Facebook and Twitter.

Go here to the LWVO website for instructions and how to ensure that your donation goes to LWV GreaterCleveland.  At the end of the contest, each local League will receive 25% of the proceeds from their supporters’ entries.  Each correct answer accompanied by a donation of any amount is placed into a drawing. One (1) lucky winner will be the recipient of an Ohio Historic Adventure Prize Pack! The drawing will take place via Facebook Live on August 1, 2018.
