Cleveland Storyteller Uses History to Raise Thousands for Charities

Dan Ruminski uses history to create spellbinding entertainment for your fundraiser. Learn how he’s raising money for autism.


His presentations are not dry history lectures, but rather entertaining stories loaded with great characters including the Rockefellers, Whites, Drurys, and others who made Cleveland’s Millionaires' Row one of the most beautiful and wealthiest streets in the world.

Dan’s events are usually sold out, and he has raised thousands for local charities. A recent Willoughby Rotary fundraiser for autism raised over $5000, and has gained several corporate sponsors for future events.

“Dan’s programs have been exciting and educational. His relaxed style of storytelling allows his audience to listen to history as if they are living it!”
– Katherine Malmquist, Gates Mills Branch Mgr., Cuyahoga County Public Library
