Book Launch Event to Benefit One Lucky Charity – Pat Perry, Local Author, Releases His Second Business Book at Event on September 26

It’s uncommon for authors to release their book at an event to benefit others. Yet, it is consistent with the approach Pat Perry has taken to build a successful business and a career spanning 40 years. Always pushing the envelope, challenging the status quo and thinking outside of the box, it’s just like Pat to share his business knowledge and second book, Business Lessons Learned Along the Way, in the spirit of helping others.

On September 26th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at Pine Ridge Country Club (30605 Ridge Road, Wickliffe, Ohio 44092) a networking luncheon and official book launch will be held. Coined ‘A Book Launch with a Twist,’ this unique event will provide one lucky Northeast Ohio charity 100% of the net proceeds. The winning charity will be pulled from entries submitted by attendees of their local favorite charity. The winner will be selected during the luncheon and a donation in their honor will be made to their charity of choice.

Not only will a charity ‘win’ that day but all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Pat’s new book courtesy of the Oswald Companies. The event has been designed to bring together business professionals from Northeast Ohio companies to network and build relationships while enjoying lunch in a fun atmosphere.

The new book is a sequel to Re-Shape Re-Define Re-Image ( Like the first book, it is intended to be a quick read and offers readers practical ideas and thoughts focused on business, professional and personal success.

To purchase your $35 ticket, which includes a copy of the book, or to receive additional event information call Hayley McQuate, ERC Client Services Coordinator at 440-947-1291. ‘Book Launch with a Twist’ is sponsored by ERC, Leadership Lake County, Oswald Companies and The News-Herald.
