Hats Off Luncheon

The 2018 event, co-chaired by Marty Humes and Jamie Humes, raised critical funds for preservation and programming initiatives for future generations to enjoy.

The 2018 Hats Off Luncheon, hosted by The Women’s Committee of Smale Riverfront Park, returned to the Great Lawn of the John G. & Phyllis W. Smale Riverfront Park on May 17, 2018. This beautiful Cincinnati Parks’ venue featured sweeping views of the Ohio River against a lush backdrop of gardens and landscapes. The theme for the 2018 event was Rollin’ on the River
