GCB 2017 Champions of Hope

GCB 2017 Champions of Hope

Celebrates Second Chances for the hard-to-hire

CINCINNATI -- Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services  will hold its 11th Annual Champions of Hope fundraiser on Friday, April 7 at the JACK Cincinnati Casino Pavilion Ballroom from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with Presenting Sponsor Western & Southern Financial Group

Net proceeds from the event benefit adults, families, and youth in our communities who are facing mental illness, homelessness and substance abuse.

The evening will include an elegant dinner, several raffles and a silent auction, featuring items such as a week's stay in a Marco Island, Fla. condo, round-trip airfare from Ultimate Air Shuttle, Reds and Bengals tickets and other exciting surprises.

GCB will honor Nehemiah Manufacturing Co. as the 2017 Champion of Hope for its commitment to employ and promote second-chance and hard-to-hire people, and its long-time support of GCB.  Its mission, Building Brands, Creating Jobs, Changing Lives, speaks to the company's intention to bring manufacturing jobs back to the inner city of Cincinnati to stimulate community development, economic growth and gainful employment for people who are ready to live productive lives.  CEO Dan Meyer has also started a business alliance called Beacon of Hope in order to share this model with other local companies.
