April 21, 2016

Cleveland, OH – Cleveland Rape Crisis Center is pleased to announce that its 2016 Sing Out! for Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, presented by University Hospitals (Sing Out!), will honor Heather Lennox Krause, Partner-in-Charge at Jones Day, Cleveland, for her leadership in advancing the mission of the Center.

Sing Out! is a long-standing one-night-only community music tradition which raises spirits, awareness and support for Northeast Ohio’s sole provider of comprehensive rape crisis services. The Sing Out! Chorale brings together more than 100 community, civic and business leaders to “sing out against rape and sexual abuse.” This year’s performance is scheduled for Thursday, June 9th at Severance Hall.

Linda M. Kane, Principal, Geraldine Financial Consulting, and Steven D. Standley, Chief Administrative Officer, University Hospitals, are co-chairing the event. The Chorale Committee is led by Amy G. Brady, Chief Information Officer, KeyBank; Richard J. Clark, Executive Vice President, John P. Murphy Foundation and Vice President, Kulas Foundation; and Lauren Rich Fine.

Heather Lennox Krause is a Cleveland native and graduate of Holy Name High School and John Carroll University. She has worked for Jones Day since earning her juris doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center. She is the 13th woman to head one of Jones Day’s 42 offices worldwide, and the first to lead the Cleveland office. She is a long-time supporter of the Center, has served on the Center’s board, and is a powerful voice in the community standing up for survivors of sexual abuse and prevention education.

“Heather has been an ardent supporter of Cleveland Rape Crisis Center for nearly 20 years and was a member of the Board of Directors for eight years,” says the Center’s Chief Development Officer, Sarah Trimble. “Heather has been a leader in so many ways. She is a steadfast advocate for the Center at Jones Day and to the many other organizations she has engaged in our mission. In every role she takes on for the Center, she gives it her all. We are so proud to honor her at the 2016 Sing Out!”
