Special Events for Stepping StonesStepping Stones hosts a variety of special events each year, to benefit life-changing programs for people with disabilities in Greater Cincinnati! Since 1963, we have enabled children and adults with disabilities to build independence and fully participate in their communities.
Stepping Stones is a nonprofit United Way partner agency. Join us at one of our signature special events and raise funds for life-changing programs that truly improve lives.

Be Our Valentine!
In February, this Valentine-inspired evening offers fine food and drink. Since its beginning in 2007, Open Your Heart has been held at Eddie Merlot’s restaurant on Montgomery Road. Enjoy a relaxing evening with cocktails and an elegant dinner. Our 2021 event will be in a new, safe and socially-distanced format due to COVID-19. View details on this year’s event.
