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.


The Aubrey Rose Foundation will host its annual City Chicks for Charity event on June 21.

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.

Want to enjoy a night of fun, fashion, dancing, and drinks? If your answer is yes then you’ll want to save your spot for the upcoming City Chicks for Charity event at Rhinegeist on Thursday, June 23.

Hosted by the Aubrey Rose Foundation, City Chicks for Charity is a new ladies night out event that allows women to go out and enjoy something unique while supporting the organization’s cause of helping families to care for children who suffer from life threatening illnesses.

“We strive to help families from life’s complexities during this difficult time by providing emotional and financial support,” says Aubrey Rose Co-Founder Nancy Hollenkamp.

Rhinegeist will be the host venue for the upcoming City Chicks for Charity event.

The Aubrey Rose Foundation, which is headed up by Bobby Metzner, was founded in memory of Aubrey Rose. “Aubrey was always a very happy baby throughout everything she endured, and she smiled continuously,” adds Hollenkamp. “In honor, her foundation provides support and help for those who seek to be lifted from the complexities of life here on earth and to find a greater happiness in those things that could be. Aubrey brought a great light into our lives.”

Aubrey, Hollenkamp’s daughter, was born in November 1997. Doctors soon found that she had two holes in her heart, which required surgery at 10 weeks ago. Then, at 9 months, Aubrey was diagnosed with a condition called Scimitar Syndrome. “This is an extremely rare situation where two of her pulmonary veins traveled to her liver instead of to her lungs,” according to the Aubrey Rose Foundation’s website.

Aubrey underwent several major surgeries before coming home in mid-January 1999. One year after a set of surgeries, Aubrey passed away suddenly. “The autopsy results showed that Aubrey had chronic lung rejections, and unfortunately, there would have been nothing that we could have done about this condition had we known,” says Hollenkamp.

So now, her parents and their organization will honor her with an evening of fundraising to help other families in need.

A $35 ticket to City Chicks for Charity includes valet parking, food, two drink tickets, and a swag bag.

Additionally, the foundation will be selling raffle tickets for a Thelma & Louise Getaway to Gatlinburg. Tickets for the raffle, valued at $2,500, are $25 each or 5 for $100.

Also at the event will be 24 vendors, two different fashion shows, food, and beautiful decorations, all to help families with medically-fragile children.
