Stepping Stones hosted its 19th annual Viva La Bloom fundraiser on Saturday, September 9th at the Little Miami Brewing Company Event Center in Milford. The event raised more than $317,000 Net to benefit year-round programming for children, teens and adults with disabilities.
Event chair Nancy Aichholz hosted the “Viva La Bloom” themed evening with casino-style games, music, slot machines, a silent auction featuring premiere packages, and dinner by some of Cincinnati’s best food trucks. Supporters wore their best “casino-chic” attire and tried their luck throughout the night on games of chance.
“Thank you to everyone who supported Stepping Stones at Viva La Bloom,” said event chair Nancy Aichholz. “It was a record-breaking year for Bloom and we couldn’t have done it without our generous supporters. We look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s event!”
The event’s Royal Flush sponsors were Chemed Foundation, Mendy & Dr. Andrew Ringer, Rendigs Foundation, Jeanne & Bob Coughlin, and Hatton Foundation. Straight Flush sponsors included the Pettengill family, Susie & Neil Bortz and anonymous.
