The Children’s Home of Cincinnati Rockin’ at Riverfest Raises $500,000
Tuesday, September 12, 2017

On Sunday, September 3, 480 guests gathered at the Anderson Pavilion for The Children’s Home of Cincinnati’s Rockin’ at Riverfest presented by the Marge & Charles J. Schott Foundation and the Heidt Family Foundation. Event Co-Chairs John and Dr. Karen Bankston, Jeff & Lindsay Berding, and Mike & Lauri Prescott  led the event along with Masters of Ceremonies Tanya O’Rourke and Steve Raleigh from WCPO 9 On Your Side with an evening of silent and live auctions, and a close-up view of the fantastic  Western & Southern/WEBN fireworks. 


The evening featured success stories of children whose lives were transformed thanks to the 23 programs and services The Children’s Home.  A recent graduate of The Children’s Home of Cincinnati was featured during the evening received a standing ovation.  The circumstances of his life – moving from home to home through foster care, being in the juvenile system, and simply not knowing what was next, impaired his emotional and behavioral health. Today, we are pleased that he has graduated, is reunited with his family and has earned a full-time job on the staff of The Children’s Home of Cincinnati. 


“We are thrilled and humbled by the enormous amount of support that we received during Rockin’ at Riverfest. We are deeply grateful to the co-chairs for their leadership of the event and for the generous support of our sponsors. Together we raised funds which will help provide much needed services to 8,300 vulnerable children and families we serve in the Greater Cincinnati area, ” said Rod Hinton, Vice President of Advancement for The Children’s Home.
