The Greater Cleveland Sports Awards were created in 2000 by the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission as its annual fundraising event. Over the past 11 years, the Sports Awards has become the Sports Commission's largest fundraiser and supplies the organization with a significant portion of its operating budget. This benefit enables the Sports Commission, 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 2000, the Sports Commission has been responsible for attracting and creating more than a hundred events and activities to the Greater Cleveland area, generating nearly $300 million in economic activity.
