The Greater Cleveland Sports Awards were created in 2000 by the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission (GCSC) as its annual fundraising event. Over the past-eight years, Sports Awards has become the GCSC's largest fundraiser and supplies the organization with more than 30% of its operating budget.
This benefit enables the GCSC, a non-profit organization, to continue its mission to measurably enhance the economy, image and quality of life in the Greater Cleveland community. Since being re-established in 1999, the GCSC has been directly responsible for attracting more than seventy sporting events and activities to the Greater Cleveland area, generating more than $200 million in economic impact.
The Greater Cleveland Sports Awards honor the best of the area's amateur and professional sports. Each year, Sports Awards brings together more than 60 of the biggest sports stars in Cleveland.
