"Feel-Good Fridays!" are fun events designed to raise funds for The Feel-Good Foundation. Participating in a "Feel-Good Friday!" is a unique way to relax and spend time with your friends, family, or co-workers and at the same time make a contribution to a good cause.
Feel-Good Friday events are typically a whole or half day, and always held on a Friday of course! Each event includes a set a mystery activities over the course of a day, either in the form of a “mystery tour” where participants visit a variety of locations, or a single venue with multiple activities. Throughout the day, participants are introduced to fun and interesting new ideas, places, and activities in the greater Cleveland area. Some previous "Feel-Good Friday!" events have included spectacular hikes, creative craft projects, relaxing spa treatments, cooking classes, wine tastings, and musical performances. "Feel-Good Fridays!" have also provided opportunities for local children-related non-profit organizations to present information about their programs to participants. We highlight a different organization at each "Feel-Good Friday!" and the following donations have been made to these organizations during past events:
- Healthy food items for the Cleveland Foodbank's Backpack for Kids program
- New infant clothing to Womensafe for children living at the shelter.
- New books for the Reach Out and Read Program, which provides new books to children who cannot afford them, through pediatricians offices around the Cleveland area.
- Toys, games and other activities for children and siblings of children staying at Ronald McDonald House in Cleveland.
Scheduled "Feel-Good Friday!" events are held annually by the foundation board of advisors and are open to anyone who would like to participate. Or, an individual, group or company may sponsor their own "Feel-Good Friday!" for specific participants. In this case, the day can be tailored to include particular activities preferred by the sponsor. Per person fees vary for each event, depending on the types of activities that the group sponsor desires. Typical cost per person is $75 - 150 for half a day and $200-300 for a full day. Meals, snacks and fun feel-good giveaway prizes are included in the fee to attend all events.
