We've revamped this signature event and we are excited to share it with you. The evening's festivities will take place entirely at the Cincinnati Marriott North in West Chester. Dinner will be prepared by premier chefs from the Cincinnati area. We will present a 5-star line-up of Live Auction items, a Basket Raffle with something for everyone to enjoy, prizes unlocked by 5 LUCKY Keys, Kendra Scott's $50 (up to $195 value in each) Mystery Jewelry Boxes, as well as a Wall-of-Wine and Whiskey Pull. The After Party, beginning at 9:30 PM right at the Marriott will feature LIVE music from The Company and FREE late night snacks!
Proceeds from The Key Event benefit the Foundation's Community Grants Fund and ongoing operations. Each year the Foundation's Board of Directors awards $100,000 in grants from the Community Grants Fund to nonprofit organizations serving our community. Past grantees include Reach Out Lakota, Boys & Girls Club of WCL, Big Brother Big Sisters, City Gospel Mission, PAWS Adoption Center, and Cancer Family Care among many others. Community Foundation grants help ensure that important programming and services offered by these organizations continues. These dollars also help us build our Community Grants Endowment Fund and Forever Fund Operating Endowment, ensuring a sustainable source of funding to meet community needs well into the future.
