Submitted by Heather Joseph
On the evening of April 27th, 2018, the Ladies of Kindervelt 50 and over 200 guests gathered at the new Summit Hotel to raise money for Kindervelt’s Psychiatric Emergency Assessment Center of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Supporters enjoyed playing the casino gaming tables as well as the raffle and silent auction items while raising over $60,000. With a room transformation by Chrissie Blatt Creative, guests placed their bets, had dinner and desserts by the bite and danced the night away! Kindervelt #50 “UP” is extremely thankful for the support of this year’s sponsors especially our presenting sponsors: Celebrity Cruises, Genoa Healthcare, John R Jurgensen, Knowlton, Mercedes of Cincinnati and West Chester, Pure Romance and Your Home Team.
