Learn about the annual bluegrass concert taking place in September at Sawyer Point that provides local families with greater resources for their children’s health.
Cincy Chic: What is Bluegrass for Babies?
Anne Schneider, Founder of Bluegrass for Babies: Bluegrass for Babies is a family-friendly bluegrass concert that benefits infant and children’s health in our community. Ticket sales and donations help provide families in Greater Cincinnati with more integrative infant and children’s health resources through organizations including Cradle Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center’s Center for the Prevention of Preterm Birth.
We are passionate about “raising the bar” for infant and children’s health care in our community, and their goals align with our mission of providing families with the knowledge to make the best choices to raise healthy children right from the start, which is why it’s such a great partnership.
Cincy Chic: Who does the concert benefit?
Schneider: The event is a fundraiser, but is also, at its heart, a bluegrass concert with great music. We’re excited to welcome Pennsylvania Band Cabinet as this year’s headliner, and welcome back regional bluegrass acts including Hickory Robot and the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars. While parents and their children can enjoy the music out on the lawn at Sawyer Point, there are also plenty of activities for kids including a special performance from Jennifer Ellis.
Cincy Chic: What can guests expect at this year’s benefit?
Schneider: This year’s attendees can expect plenty of great food from Mazunte, Dewey’s, Eli’s BBQ and Green BEAN Delivery. Overall, it’s a great day for the family with outdoor activities and music from talented bands, that also benefits great local organizations.
