Join The Women’s Committee of Smale Riverfront Park for a special luncheon and experience like never before at the John G. and Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront Park.

Join us for an enchanting and sublime Hats Off Luncheon on Thursday, May 18, 2017.  Hosted by the Women’s Committee of Smale Riverfront Park, the Luncheon will be held on the Great Lawn of Smale Riverfront Park with sweeping views of the Ohio River against a lush backdrop of gardens and landscapes.  Proceeds from the 2017 Hats Off Luncheon will support preservation and programming initiatives for future generations to enjoy. This is the Women’s Committee’s only major fundraising event of the year.

This year’s Luncheon will celebrate the magic of Cincinnati Parks, beginning with a Champagne Reception at under the Roebling Suspension Bridge.  A gourmet meal will follow on the Great Lawn, featuring performances by Cincinnati Opera and The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati.  We anticipate 1,200 civic leaders and park lovers to be part of this whimsical afternoon. Visit the registration page to purchase tickets today.

With an estimated 1.1 million visitors to Smale Riverfront Park annually, this irreplaceable urban treasure has welcomed an economic resurgence in our riverfront economy.  In order to continue the impact that Smale Riverfront Park has created as a vibrant community space encouraging an active lifestyle, we need private and public partnerships to fulfill the legacy of John G. & Phyllis W. Smale and so many other Cincinnatians.  Join the Women’s Committee as a steward of this urban oases along the banks of the Ohio River.  We have several sponsorship levels available to individuals and organizations for the Hats Off Luncheon.  View this year’s giving levels & benefits for more information, and use this pledge form to pledge your support as a sponsor.
