Ramy and Faye Eidi were named ProMedica’s Philanthropists of the Year at a ceremony held April 18. Last year, the Eidis donated $1.5 million to the Ebeid Neighborhood Promise, a multifaceted initiative developed to address social determinants of health and create a model for UpTown revitalization.
The award is presented to individuals who set the standard of excellence in the health and well–being of the community. Not only do the Eidis provide financial support to improve healthcare at ProMedica and within the community, they generously volunteer their time and have taken a leadership role to encourage and inspire others to help ProMedica achieve its mission.
Ramy Eidi is dedicated to giving back through philanthropic deeds. He has been recognized both for his continuous contributions and donations—from launching the $100,000 Small Business Challenge which inspired and supported entrepreneurs to the ProMedica Health initiative. He gives directly and generously to projects on the local, national and international stage. A few examples include the Salvation Army, The Toledo Children’s Hospital Foundation, orphanages, UNICEF and the Mehdi “Danny” Eidi Centre in Lebanon, which provides much needed medical care to women, children, the elderly and refugees.
“Eidi Properties is committed to giving back to the communities that have given so much to us, as my parents have instilled in us the importance of giving back,” Eidi pointed out.
In addition, Eidi Properties serves as a corporate sponsor for programs that benefit the local community. It founded the Danny S. Eidi & Family Foundation, which supports many additional charitable endeavors locally.
As CEO of Eidi Proprieties, Eidi leads a team of highly qualified professionals specializing in commercial real estate investment and management. In the two decades since creating his company, Eidi has gone from owning a 2,700-square-foot corner tavern to bringing Eidi Properties’ current portfolio up to more than 1.5 million square feet of prime retail space. The company’s holdings currently stand at 40-plus shopping centers with more than 400 national and regional tenants.
Several real estate trade magazines, including Shopping Centers Today, France Media Heartland Publication and Crain’s Detroit Business have recognized Eidi Properties for being one of the fastest growing commercial real estate investment firms in northwest Ohio.
Eidi attended Sylvania Northview High School and The University of Toledo where he studied business and finance. He was named to the Sylvania Academic Excellence Foundation’s 25th Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. He and his wife recently served as the 2018 honorary hosts of Lourdes University’s premier scholarship fundraising event, Luminations.
Mentorship and providing guidance to young entrepreneurs is one of his greatest passions and he often allots his free time to assisting those who seek his counsel.
When he isn’t working, Eidi spends quality time with his family, which is his top priority. Most weekends he, his wife and their three boys can be found at sporting events, whether it’s at a baseball field or a rowing event.
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit” and “there are no limitations to the mind except those that we acknowledge,” are two of Eidi’s favorite sayings and words he lives by.

Chrys Peterson congratulates Faye and Ramy Eidi on being named ProMedica’s Philanthropists of the Year.

Charney is named Philanthropist Champion

Robin Charney, Liaison for the Hickman Cancer Center at ProMedica Flower Hospital, was presented with the Philanthropy Champion of the Year Award at the annual awards dinner.
The Philanthropy Champion of the Year Award is given to a ProMedica physician or employee/department that has shown exemplary service to patients and the community. The candidate is an advocate for outstanding health care demonstrated through compassion, hope and healing.
Charney goes above and beyond in her work within ProMedica and the community. For the past two years, she has been a leader for the Brews and Bros: Raising Awareness of Men’s Health committee. She has introduced numerous members of the community to the committee and effectively engaged and inspired others to support the cause.
Charney also provides a valuable community service for the work she does with ProMedica’s Barbershop Program.
She has thoroughly done her research on the community through health assessments and uses quantitative and qualitative data to systematically analyze the health of the surrounding communities. From the disparities found, Charney has facilitated a variety of health screenings in area barbershops, such as screenings for cancer, hypertension and diabetes. This program was built from the ground up and she made it her mission to ensure that participating barbershops can offer health screenings from qualified volunteers, nurses and doctors. Although her job title is not fundraising, she is passionate about raising funds for this cause and giving back to the community.
Charney shares information about these programs with everyone she meets and continues to expand the programs and inspire the community.
