Allow me, for a moment, to indulge in a pet project.
I've got a big secret to spill, and it involves this Saturday night.
You see, I am super excited about The Future Fund's "Event of The Season," which is about to fling open the doors on a good time this weekend.
The event (Saturday night from 8 pm to 12 am) aims to launch The Future Fund, a Young Professional (really, any professional) invested endowment fund that aims to support United Way's work in education, income and health in Greater Cincinnati.
I think we can all agree that those things are important to our community, right? (It's at this point where I am boldly disclosing that United Way is my employer).
So, this party. It's going to feature the party staging talents of none other than Joe Rigotti of Accent on Cincinnati, the culinary greatness of Chef Renee Schuler of Eat Well Celebrations and Feasts. Popular Cincinnati DJ Ryan Lehmkuhl will drop the beats for the evening, and guests will be entertained by a fashion show featuring styles from 4 U Urban Fashion Boutique.
Oh, and did I mention we'll have David DeWitt's classic Photo Booth, made famous by FB's on 6th St.?
This party is going to be spectacular.
And the venue. Yes, the venue. Everyone wants to know about the venue.
Well, it's still a secret.
Here are a few clues that I've leaked previously:
-Lewis would have been impressed with this venue, were it there when he paddled by, headed to meet Clark.
-"The sensual mysticism of an entire vertical being." e.e. cummings.
-Words that describe The Event of The Season on November 13: glow, sparkle, skyline, high, flash, pulsing, laughter, strut, electric
I'll be revealing the venue via Twitter at @UnitedWayGC as well as @Kate_the_Great. Feel free to leave any guesses in my comments section on this page.
In the meantime, please be sure to buy your tickets ($35 pp) at the Eventbrite page, where you can learn more about The Future Fund.
UPDATE: THE VENUE HAS BEEN REVEALED.
Please join us at The Penthouse at SouthShore Condominiums in Newport, KY!
As a personal aside: I've been working on this event since April and am really proud of what we've managed to pull off. It's going to be a fantastic evening supporting great work in Greater Cincinnati. I promise.
See you there!
