On April 29, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., the Greek Orthodox Cathedral garden courtyard will turn into an evening of flavor and spirit. The evening kicks off with hors’ dourves and entertainment and Short North District spirit businesses will be pouring their specialty cocktails. The Cathedral ballroom will host light, sound and art, provided by PageTech Ltd., IM Creative and Short North galleries. Acclaimed Short North chefs will create culinary samples of their favorite dishes and an evening of dancing will follow.

The Short North Business Association will recognize the 2012 Unsung Heros, honoring individuals who enrich the quality of Life in the Short North and Columbus through their volunteer efforts and contributions behind the scenes to advance Art, Community, Diversity and the Short North Spirit.

This year, one of our very own Harrison West residents and leaders, Rob Harris will be honored. Rob has served as President of the Harrison West Society and as a neighborhood representative to the Short North Foundation. Rob has been instrumental in shaping the Harrison West landscape, while aiding in getting new neighborhood development off the ground. He has helped create the new neighborhood signage for all of the Short North neighborhoods, as well as being the lead architect for the Harrison Park development, including the new park space, featuring the gazebo and Funk-ee-Town, a children’s playground named after his close friend, Mary Funk. Rob’s leadership of the Harrison West Society is highly respected and valued throughout the neighborhood, where he represents the interests of both long-time residents, newer arrivals, commercial interests, as well as preparing the neighborhood for the future.
