    One stylish step at a time, the Cancer Support Community is raising funds for their cause with a fun and fashionable night out. Keep reading for their inspiring message and how they’re helping those impacted by cancer through this upcoming event that every wino and fashionista will want to attend!


    Wine, Women & Shoes will be held May 18 at the Kenwood Country Club and benefit the Cancer Support Community.

    Mark your calendars for May 12 for the 2017 Wine, Women & Shoes event takes place at the Kenwood Country Club from 6:30 to 10:30 pm.

    Benefitting the Cancer Support Community, Wine, Women & Shoes brings a night of fashion and philanthropy to the city, aiming to bring support to a local organization.

    “This evening of fashion and compassion is a smart, sophisticated event featuring wine tasting, silent and live auctions, a fashion show, and a shopping marketplace that will engage and entertain our expected 300 plus guests,” explains Cancer Support Community Executive Director Michelle Johnson.

    The event aims to raise funds and further the mission of the CSC.

    The Cancer Support Community was established in 1990, a few years after Lynn Stern watched an episode of the Phil Donahue Show in which the show discussed The Wellness Community (TWC) with special guest Dr. Harold Benjamin, who founded TWC.

    Dr. Benjamin put out a call-to-action to anyone who wanted to start a wellness community of their own. Stern jumped at the chance as she was a cancer survivor herself.

    “As an ovarian cancer survivor and moved by his mission of providing education, hope, and community to those impacted by cancer, Stern picked up the phone and immediately contact Dr. Benjamin,” says Johnson.

    After spending time in Santa Monica, California, learning more about the organization, Stern knew she wanted to bring the organization to Cincinnati, thanks to its philosophy, approach, and impact on people affected by cancer.

    “Today, the Cancer Support Community brings support, education, and hope to the thousands of people who are impacted by cancer in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky regions,” says Johnson.

    Event entertainment, wine, and other fun activities are planned for Wine, Women & Shoes.

    According to Johnson, the mission at the Cancer Support Community is to ensure that all those who are impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by the community.

    To bring even greater awareness of the Cancer Support Community and to raise funds for its mission, the organization is teaming up with Wine, Women & Shoes. Founded by Elaine Honig, Wine, Women & Shoes hosts events in cities around the country to help organizations raise money for their causes.

    VIP tickets for Wine, Women & Shoes are $150 and includes valet parking, a VIP gift, table seating with a dedicated Shoe Guy host, wine tasting, food and beverages, event entertainment, and a swag bag. General admission tickets are $100 and includes valet parking, wine tasting, food and beverages, event entertainment, and a swag bag.

    Get your engine revved for a red hot summer event featuring 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon, exotic cars and the FC Cincinnati Men's Professional Soccer Team.

    18|8 Fine Men's Salon in Oakley will host the High Performance at 18|8 event with FC Cincinnati players on June 16.
    18|8 Fine Men’s Salon in Oakley will host the High Performance at 18|8 event with FC Cincinnati players on June 16.

    Chris Brown, owner of 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon in Oakley, believes that when you look better, you feel better, you perform better. This principal is the promise 18|8 strives to deliver on with every guest. It’s also the inspiration for their upcoming event, High Performance at 18|8. High Performance at 18|8 is about providing guests with a high-end experience by top performing brands.

    Attendees at the event will receive services from 18|8 and the chance to rub elbows with the FC Cincinnati Men’s Professional Soccer Team. This is all taking place against a backdrop of exotic cars with craft beer and bourbon being served. Complimentary chair massages from Elements Massage will be available as well as unique shopping experiences with local high-end retailers such as Ziv Trading Company.

    18|8 Fine Men’s Salon celebrates modern masculine style and will have special pricing on gift baskets and certificates that were put together to indulge dads and grads! Brown explained that the 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon Executive Haircut comes with a consultation, shampoo and conditioning, scalp cleanse, hot towel facial, five-minute neck, and shoulder massage, plus styling.

    Top-notch grooming and styling services are just a few of the reasons the FC Cincinnati Men’s Professional Soccer Team chose 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon as their official men’s grooming expert. For Brown, this relationship is “another opportunity to deliver our promise with a group of guys that are at the top of their profession and it’s important that they look good and have confidence when they take the field,” he says.

    Brown has certainly seen how everything from a straight razor shave to a style overhaul inspires confidence. “You can tell just by the way they [clients] are walking and carrying themselves, they are feeling better and ready to take on the world. We often will get a positive online review or even just an in-person, on-the-spot compliment back to us that this was the best grooming experience they have ever had,” he says.

    The best part about the upcoming event? It’s for a good cause! Proceeds from VIP ticket sales will go to the Dragonfly Foundation, which benefits children with cancer. “My son experienced some major medical issues when he was about 12 months old […] so helping a charity like Dragonfly that is so involved and important in helping the families and children impacted by something as serious as cancer touches my heart,” Brown says.

    The event is free to attend, however, $20 VIP tickets gives attendees the exclusive opportunity for autographs and professional photos with FC Cincinnati players, a swag bag of products and gift certificates valued at $200, and 20% off at 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon. Tickets can be purchased in advance.

    High Performance at 18|8 will be held June 16 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon, 3110 Vandercar Way. For more information about 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon services stop by their website. To be in then know about specials and events follow them on Facebook.
