OACGC hosted our final happy hour fundraiser of 2015 at Green Derby in Newport on December 3rd. Guests dined on Kentucky culinary classics while enjoying good drinks and conversation. Jason Spaulding was the lucky winner of our raffle that included Oboz boots, an Opsrey day pack, cozy socks and winter hat donated by Roads, Rivers, and Trails (RRT) in Milford.
RRT also set up a lovely display of holiday gift ideas for the outdoorsy person in everyone’s life. Some smart happy hour attendees even marked off items from their shopping list by picking up perfect gifts from RRT’s display. Thanks to the RRT family, especially Kayla and Emily, for helping make our end of year happy hour extra special.
Also in December, OACGC staffed a complimentary gift wrapping table at REI to engage with people about our work in the Cincinnati community. Shoppers were thankful for the help with wrapping their holiday gifts but were more appreciative of the adventures offered to local urban students by OACGC. Still looking for a gift for the nature-lover in your family? Consider making a gift to OACGC in their honor and share the love!
