Handbags for Hope to benefit Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati

Cincinnati Club
On Feb. 23, the community is invited to celebrate literacy in Cincinnati as the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati hosts its sixth annual Handbags for Hope event.

Cocktails, dinner, raffles and a silent auction will enable not only an enjoyable “Girl’s Night Out” but an avenue for fundraising as well. Nearly $50,000 was raised at last year’s event, and LNGC is hoping to exceed that goal this year.

“Handbags for Hope is a wonderful example of the good things that happen when people come together to enrich our community,” says Michelle Otten Guenther, LNGC president.

Money raised enables LNGC to continue to offer and expand its programming and services. Currently, the Literacy Network operates a hotline that connects adults and their children with the appropriate resources, in addition to an array of programs, including the Adult Basic Reading Program and Winners Walk Tall — a program aimed at building character among youth.

New at this year’s event: a Louis Vuitton raffle where the prize is a handbag valued at $990, as well as a Golden Ticket raffle where an individual will have the opportunity to choose any handbag up for auction. The new raffle prizes are intended to help LNGC raise even more funds to assist the community.

“We could not accomplish all that we do without the incredibly generous support of our volunteers, board members, donors and community partners,” Otten Guenther says. “We can't wait to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of those who have made the past year so successful.”

Do Good: 

•    Purchase your ticket to Handbags for Hope before they sell out.

•    Can't attend next month's event? Support the LNGC today.

•    Volunteer with the LNGC. The next training date takes place in early March.

Ryan joined the 9 On Your Side news team as the anchor on “The NOW Cincinnati.”

Bobby Cool will be performing live for the evening. He is known as a Nashville singer, songwriter and performer, seasoned in the music business on Nashville’s historic Music Row working closely with record labels, producers, and songwriters.

20th Annual Kings Island Walk to Cure Diabetes

Kings Island
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun, happy, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to raise funds for JDRF—the leading global organization focused on T1D research.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks nationally every year that connect walkers to an extensive community of families, volunteers, and donors who are committed to fighting this serious disease.

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised $1 billion to date. Your generosity helps us continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while we work towards a cure.

Thank you for your support of the JDRF Walk!

MVRC's Hamilton office, located at 914 Ross Ave
 

Military Veterans Resource Center invites all job seeking veterans to attend a career workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014.

Veterans interested in attending the workshop must pre-register by contacting career specialist Dan Dunaway at 513-252-2395, or dan.dunaway@milvetsrc.org. The workshop is limited to 15 participants. Interested veterans should call today to be sure of a seat.

This interactive workshop is designed to improve veterans' job search skills and help them become more competitive candidates. MVRC career specialists will provide individual career assessments and will teach resume and cover letter writing.

The career specialists will also conduct mock interview sessions and help the participants improve their interview skills.

Military Veterans Resource Center is a non-profit organization that provides personalized career services to veterans who served honorably. MVRC works with veterans one-on-one to identify the obstacles preventing them from gaining employment and helps them access the resources to overcome those obstacles.
