City Chicks for Charity
A local nonprofit is hosting a fun ladies night out to help families caring for children with life-threatening illnesses. Learn more about the event and cause.
Mark your calendars for June 21, when the Aubrey Rose Foundation hosts its annual City Chicks for Charity event.
“City Chicks for Charity is our ladies night out event where we have Q102’s Holly Morgan as our emcee for the evening,” says Aubrey Rose Foundation Executive Director Nancy Hollenkamp. “We have wonderful food provided by Jeannette’s Delicacies, desserts by A Catered Affair, we have drinks, a silent auction, and a raffle, plus fashion shows.”
The event will be held from 6-9 pm at Switch Lighting and Design at 312 W 4th Street in downtown Cincinnati.
There are a couple of new things for this year’s event, including a different venue, which is something that the team at the Aubrey Rose Foundation is thrilled about.
“We’re very excited to have this year’s City Chicks for Charity at Switch because they have all kinds of furniture and lighting displays that we are welcome to use in order to make this event bigger and brighter,” says Hollenkamp. “Also, we have a partnership with Adopt-a-Book, and if our guests bring a children’s book to this event they have an opportunity to win a trip to Gatlinburg.”
“Aside from these new and exciting things for the 2017 event, there will also be a Thelma & Louise Package that will be given away, and has a value of over $1,700 including a trip to Nashville, a car rental for the weekend, purses, scarves, and a whole bunch of other stuff,” she adds.
When asked what inspired City Chicks for Charity, Hollenkamp says it’s the Aubrey Rose Foundation, which inspires everything they do. “The work that is done with the Aubrey Rose Foundation inspires all of us in everything we do,” she says. “We also love to get together, enjoy each other’s company, and encourage getting involved and giving back because, as we all know, life can change in the blink of an eye.”
Tickets for the event are $35 when you purchase no later than June 7. After that date, the price goes up to $40. “Most importantly is that all the funds raised from this event will help our many families in need who have children with life-threatening medical conditions,” says Hollenkamp.
