Music at The Hooley on Kamm's Corners and at the Kamm's Corners Farmers Market along with art activities at Asphalt Cinema have been made possible in part by $19,000 in support from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC).

Funding from CAC is possible because Cuyahoga County residents voted to create this agency to fund amazing arts and culture with local tax dollars from a cigarette tax levied within the county. Renewal of this funding source is on the ballot November 3, for voters to consider.
