365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio a Facebook Page

by Maureen McCabe on February 17, 2011

#294 of 365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ is  “Freezin’ for a Reason,”  the 2011 Polar Bear Plunge which is a fundraiser for Special Olympics Ohio.    I am sending you to the 2011 Polar Bear Plunge by way of the donation page of Kevin Logan

According to the main page for the 2011 Polar Bear Plunge:

“Last year this event raised nearly $25,000 for Special Olympics Ohio. Join the fun and help us to raise more money for the deserving Special Olympics athletes in Ohio. The Columbus plunge is one of eleven Polar Bear Plunge fundraising events in Ohio througout the months of January – March, 2011.”

If I am understanding this correctly 2011 pledges are now

“Total Donations : $48,201″

or Total Donations were that when I looked at it.

#293  Drink Guiness for St. Practice Day February 18, 2011 for those 21 and older at Quaker Steak and Lube in the Polaris area.

#292 for the more genteel garden party crowd, a lecture series at Inniswood Garden in Westerville, the Inniswood Garden Society Lecture Series is the next two Saturdays, more info on Facebook ’365 things to do in Columbus Ohio.’

#295 Hikes to see the first flowers of Spring at two Columbus Metro Parks on Saturday at 1:00, Slate Run and Sharon Woods…  Slate Run is southeast Central Ohio?  and Sharon Woods is in “my neck of the woods” northeast,

#296  Friday in Downtown Worthington  “House Wine, 644 High St., will host a wine tasting Friday, Feb. 18, 6 to 9 p.m., honoring the life of Jan Staats and benefiting ovarian cancer research.”   Jan was the executive director of the Olde Worthington Business Association.  Jan Staats passed away in January 2011.

#297 was added by a member a few weeks ago… and kind of confused me… the 2-9-2011 event was not in Columbus but in KY.  The band XFACTOR1 is local, I believe.    Carla Williams  wrote on ’365 things to do in Columbus Ohio’

“Congrats to XFACTOR1 for being added to the lineup for the 2011 Jagermeister Music Tour featuring BUCKC HERRY, HELLYEAH, ALL THE REMAINS AND THE DAMNED THINGS Wednesday, Feb. 9th at The Expo 5 Center in Louisville, KY.  Now go vote & let’s get ‘em on the airwaves where they belong!! “

I guess the thing to do in Columbus is to vote for 99.7  THE  BLITZ to play XFACTOR1 on the radio?  Or listen to 99.7  THE BLITZ?  Or both.

Carla Williams is the owner of Avalon Productions which does “Booking/promotions for local hard rock/heavy metal shows. Find us @ facebook.com/avalonproductions “  I would like to see Carla post any local shows she is promoting on ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio.’

Share local things to do on ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ on Facebook and they may end up here.  Events. Restaurants.  Businesses.  Places.    I do not take requests to blog about “Things to do in Columbus Ohio”  here.  You have to add them to ’365 things to do in Columbus Ohio’ then I will mention them here.
