Seasons to Celebrate Friends and Fundraising
As one season rapidly approaches, another is waiting in the wings. We’re so excited about both that we just had to bring them together here. This year, our Summer Solstice Celebration honors our Golden Chair Award winners, while the autumn Party in the House is devoted to our exciting Design Challenge. Both events are full of music, dancing, good food, good vibes and good friends old and new.
Summer Solstice Celebration
On the evening of Thursday, June 20th, we’ll celebrate the start of summer on the eve of the longest day of the year with a festive cocktail party at the beautiful and historic Bell Event Centre. Chaired by Ellen W. Feld, M.D., the event features live music, salsa dancing, a steel drum band, and our emcee Ryan Houston, WCPO Channel 9 Anchor & Award-winning Journalist.
The highlight of the evening will be the recognition of our annual Golden Chair Award Honorees. We will recognize the champions of our mission and members of the Greater Cincinnati community who have made a positive and lasting impact in helping those overcoming homelessness, poverty, and other devastating circumstances. This year’s honorees are:
- Dan Meyer and Richard Palmer, Co-Founders, Nehemiah Manufacturing
- Clare Blankemeyer, Mayerson Foundation
- Betty Parker, Community Activist & Volunteer
Party in the House
Later in the year, we shift our attention to Cincinnati’s phenomenal interior design community with the second annual Party in the House! We’re already busy planning this event, scheduled for Saturday, November 9th at the gorgeous Cincinnati Masonic Center downtown. Co-Chairs Tricia Ward Reynolds and Kent Shaw have lots in store, and we can’t wait to share more very soon!
With eight of Cincinnati’s top interior designers participating, the Design Challenge promises to impress with another set of unique vignettes. Designers will each select one donated item from New Life furniture’s new warehouse facility, and transform it into a unique piece of functional, high-fashion furniture art. Then they create vignettes in which to display their pieces, which will be auctioned as part of our fundraising efforts. We can’t wait to see what they come up with this year!
