Tribute to Harlan Diamond
Harlan Diamond, who stood at the helm of Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights, sold the building in 2020 after 70 years in the catering business.
In the summer of 1959, Tony Calabrese and Harlan Diamond – both men in their mid-20s and just starting their careers – were introduced by a mutual friend.
The first time Mayfield Heights Mayor Anthony DiCicco met Harlan Diamond, it was at DiCicco and Sons Funeral Home in Mayfield Heights 20 years ago.
Over its 18-year lifespan, Phil•an•thro•pi•a became a fixture of fundraising for an increasing number of local charities, raising more than $2 million.
The son of a doctor, Harlan Diamond credited a restaurateur uncle with giving him his first break in the business.
