Encourage the Heart Dinner Awardees & Program

Posted on: July 28, 2017 8:00 am

Child Focus has two great fundraising events to celebrate its 40th Anniversary this year.  The Encourage the Heart Dinner is August 4 and The Charity Golf Classic is November 3.  Child Focus encourages the heart of the most vulnerable children in our community– children who live in poverty, children with mental illness and children who hurt. Child Focus offers hope and support for children to learn, heal and grow. The Encourage the Heart Dinner sponsored by Lykins Energy Solutions, Park National Bank, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, PNC Bank, Howerton Construction Co., LLC. and iheartmedia is at Holiday Inn Eastgate and will begin with waiter-passed hors d'oevres, jazz band trio and cash bar at 5:45pm, a perfect time to check out the wine, purse, art and silent auctions.  Money raised will go to the Child Focus, Inc. Encourage the Heart Fund, supporting the agency's greatest need such as client scholarships, funding gaps, emerging program needs and staff and facility development.  Check out the program for a sneak peek of auction items, the agenda and award narratives by clicking here.  Awardees to be honored that night for their extraordinary service to children include:
