Trivia time: Which plastics material supplier pledged this week to donate $1 million over the next three years to the world-famous Cleveland Orchestra? If you answered Lubrizol Corp., give yourself an appropriate fanfare. The Wickliffe, Ohio-based company made headlines this week, and for a change it wasn't related to its pending acquisition by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. The funds will go to the Cleveland Orchestra's Sound for the Centennial campaign. The money will go to the orchestra's education and community programs. "We are honored to be in a position to support the Orchestra in such a significant way as they approach their centennial," said Chairman, President and CEO James L. Hambrick. "Beginning with Lubrizol's founders, the company has maintained a commitment to supporting the communities in which it operates and what better way to continue this tradition than with ensuring the future of the Orchestra, a true regional gem. We extend our best wishes for their continued success."
