Diamonds & Denim Gala Raises $85,000

Our Diamonds & Denim Gala was held on Saturday, April 14 and was a huge success!

Because of the generous support of our sponsors, attendees, and auction donors, we raised $85,000 to support our mission of helping individuals and families reach self-sufficiency. We also raised an additional $12,315 during the mission moment for our Northern Kentucky Scholar House program. These funds will be matched by the generous support of the Carol Ann & Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation in the amount of $10,000 and by The Model Group in the amount of $2,315. A special thanks to Sophia Depenbrock for sharing her journey towards self-sufficiency We also wish to thank the American Fundraising Foundation - AmFund for their support of our event by offering the once in a lifetime trips.The event which was held at the Cincinnati Airport Marriott was emceed by Bob Herzog of LOCAL 12, WKRC-TV included live music by The Leftovers Cincinnati band and a bourbon tasting presented by Colonel De Gourmet Herbs and Spices.

This event would not have been such a success without our great committee led by Dr. Michelle Story and Julie Crow and all of our wonderful sponsors. We would especially like to thank all of the below listed sponsors:
