Let the good times roll with over 50 food and beverage booths giving you a plethora of tasty morsels to try and vivacious cocktails to liven up the night, all for a worthy cause; the three charities the night benefits serve more than 40,000 needy individuals in the Greater Cincinnati area each year.
