Our signature fundraiser, Believe 2 Achieve, in support of our own Camp Allyn/Stepping Stones, Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, and Autism Society of Greater Cincinnati is coming up fast on June 20, 2015. It once again promises to be an exciting and fun-filled evening hosted again this year by Dean Gregory and his outstanding team at The Montgomery Inn Boathouse from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Dave Lapham and Brad Johansen will team up again as our emcees and they will be joined by our special guest Teddy Kremer of Cincinnati Reds batboy fame! You don't want to miss this special evening and the opportunity to support the children and families we serve in Rotary. Please seriously consider supporting this event by purchasing tickets at $125.00 each or taking a table and inviting your friends and relatives to join you at a table of ten for $1,000.00. All tickets include a full dinner and open bar. Last year this event sold out and Rotary members had to be wait-listed for tickets so DO NOT DELAY, call today!

It's easy to sign-up, just contact Kristy in the Rotary Office at or send in the completed registration form Believe 2 Achieve Registration Form. We promise you a fun-filled evening you will not forget, all for a wonderful cause!
