Congratulations to

Luise Easton!

Luise, Dr. Charlie’s wife, on her recognition and honor last Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission Annual Awards Program. Along with youth, college professional athletes, Luise was given the 5 Star Senior Athlete Award. We are so proud of you and all of your accomplishments!

“I do like to win. But my motto now is ‘There’s gratitude in my attitude’ because at my age, to be able to do what I’m doing physically and financially, I have nothing but gratitude,” says Easton. “Making friends through the games is another reason for doing it.”
