THE HATS OFF LUNCHEON
A wonderful spring-time event, The Hats Off Luncheon is Cincinnati Parks Foundation’s largest and most exciting fundraiser. Created by The Women’s Committee of Cincinnati Parks in 2007, the Hats Off Luncheon quickly became one of the premier fundraisers in the city by attracting the support of top business and community leaders. Guests are treated to a champagne reception followed by a gourmet luncheon. To date, the event has raised more than $2.7 million in support of Cincinnati Parks.
HATS OFF AROUND THE WORLD; PARKS AROUND OUR CITY
This month, we hosted the Hats Off Luncheon Kick-Off to fill our Luncheon committees and announce this year’s theme. Get ready for “Hats Off Around the World; Parks Around Our City!”
With over 130 parks and greenspaces, Cincinnati Parks touch every neighborhood within the city of Cincinnati. Each neighborhood has its own communities, with rich traditions, celebrations and stories to tell. Embracing the mosaic that makes up our queen city, the 2020 Hats Off Luncheon pays respect to the cultures that make us unique, and the traditions that we share.
