Stepping Stones will host the 2022 Open Your Heart dinner on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, in a new, hybrid format! Celebrate the event’s 14th year benefiting Stepping Stones’ mission to build pathways to independence and promote inclusion for people with developmental and physical disabilities.

“We’re thrilled to bring this beloved event back in person this year,” said Elizabeth Rogers, board member. “We chose to offer a hybrid event this year in hopes that all supporters will find an option they are comfortable with given the current health environment.”

Supporters can get together in person at Eddie Merlot’s for a cocktail hour, a premier raffle, artwork created by Stepping Stones’ participants and more! Alternatively, supporters can order take & bake meals that will be delivered directly to their homes. Opportunities to support the raffle and other initiatives will also be available online.

Event tickets are $185 per person. To learn more about Open Your Heart, visit For more information, contact Sara Schaser at 513-965-5103 or email
