Hello, Gorgeous.

Yep, we’re talking to you. It’s time to start hat shopping as plans for the 2019 Hats Off Luncheon are well underway. Get ready for an explosion of color, a burst of sights and sounds, and fun that continues all day long.  It’s not easy being green, but have you ever noticed all the colors that make up the beauty of Cincinnati Parks? We’ll highlight this amazing palate of colors to invite curiosity and discovery, happiness and joy as part of the Hats Off Luncheon experience. Each visit to one of our beloved Cincinnati Parks tells its own colorful story and we’re inviting you to join us in its telling!

The 2019 Hats Off Luncheon, co-chaired by Carrie Carothers and Jennifer Buchholz, will once again raise critical funds for preservation and programming initiatives for future generations to enjoy. Parks are for everyone! And you’re a huge part of what keeps our parks beautiful, accessible and fun. You make it happen!

It Won’t Be Any Fun Without You.

So save the date for Friday, May 10, 2019. Join us for a champagne toast at 11:00 am, followed by the presentation of the Phyllis W. Smale Award and a gourmet luncheon beginning at 12:15 pm. Yes, you read that right! It’s the first ever Hats Off Luncheon on a Friday. We’re saying FriYay for that!

Put On Your Party Hat.

And forget work for the day. Get the most mileage out of your #amazinghat. Sponsors and special ticket holders can keep the good vibes going at our first ever after party, hosted at 21c Museum Hotel. You won’t want to miss it (and we don’t want you to miss it)! Ready to start hat shopping? Check out this year’s featured milliner, Jenny Pfanenstiel of Formé Millinery based in Louisville, KY.
