Two Avon Ohio youths looking for Baton Competition Sponsorship

Real Estate Agent with Howard Hanna - Avon Lake, OH 2006004434

Two Avon residents are seeking support from the community to help send them overseas to participate in an international baton twirling competition.

Kimberly and Anna Lewis, both students in the Avon Local Schools, recently qualified at a national baton twirling competition to compete in the International Cup competition in the Netherlands as part of the team representing the United States. Kimberly will compete as an individual at the competition in the Netherlands in the Junior Elite 3 Baton category and both sisters will compete as part of a large team.

Kimberly, a seventh grader at Avon Middle School, and Anna, a fifth grade student at Avon Heritage North Elementary, are members of Fusion Competitive Twirling, based in Amherst. The girls also participate in ballet, lyrical dance, and tumbling programs after school. They are both involved in their schools’ orchestras where Kimberly plays violin and Anna plays cello.

Anna has been twirling baton since she was 3 years old. Kimberly started when she was 4 years old.

Their mother, Dell-Ann Lewis, said twirling is a family tradition. “My mom and my aunt were both majorettes,” she said. “They twirled, then I twirled, and now the girls twirl, too.”

The Lewis family are the only members of Fusion who are sending two girls to the competition which means their costs are doubled.

The family’s fundraising goal is $6,000 to afford to send both girls to the competition. So far they have raised $810 from eight sponsors. The girls’ current sponsors are a mix of businesses and individuals and include Misencik Funeral Home in Avon, State Farm Agent Ron Cillian, Orthopedic Associates, Mark and Pat Lewis, Tom and Anita Morgan, Sharon and Jan Triska, and Inspire Hypnosis.

The girls have taken on other fundraising efforts, including candle sales and dog washes. They will continue to raise money until the time of the International Cup Competition in August of this year.

Companies or individuals who wish to sponsor the girls may contact Dell-Ann Lewis at or Callene Derrick, USA IC Tour Coordinator, at

Struggling to search for Avon Lake, Avon, North Ridgeville, Sheffield Lake and Sheffield Village Homes?  Need some easier way to do it on the go?  Trulia 
and Zillow are great programs however they are not local.  They are not current to activity at the minute and projections on values of homes are questionable based on global measures and not having local information as a local Realtor would.  So what to do? Add my search engine to your mobile devise or  computer and get direct and current home sales, open houses, know when a home is off the market and sold right away and find similar homes in the area.  The search engine has GPS function that you can activate on your phone  and with that it will give you comparables while you are in the driveway of that dream home.  Now how cool is that?  

Try it.

Kimberly and Anna sound like exceptional girls and I hope they can wash enough dogs to get their trip paid for!  I'm sure with their energy levels and outgoing personalities they will be able to make it happen.
