Monica Robins from WKYC-TV3 and her band are performing onstage in the afternoon and local favorite Cleveland’s Breakfast Club performs in the evening.

“We were humbled last year when the festival’s attendance doubled over the previous year, which was a sell out,” said Ed McNamara, foundation president. “To build on that momentum and serve a larger audience, we‘ve been working closely with the City of Rocky River to provide more fun, entertainment and opportunities to appreciate local restaurants and shops, while safely enjoying wines and craft brews.”

Prayers from Maria Children’s Glioma Cancer Foundation ( is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas; raising public awareness about gliomas and bringing hope to children and families who deal with the disease’s hardships. Its annual Sunflower Wine Festival helps build awareness about deadly childhood brain tumors and funds promising research with results. The foundation was established by Ed and Megan McNamara of Avon Lake, Ohio, who lost their daughter Maria to this devastating illness.
