Yellow Bus Ball

In addition to watching Katy Morgan get married this weekend, I am hosting the Yellow Bus Ball.

Hi everyone. Rob here.

The ball will benefit Faces Without Places and happens this weekend at Longworth Hall from 7 to 11pm. Faces without places was founded in 1998 and removes barriers to education. It keeps children experiencing homelessness connected to their education. Every year about 6,000 children are homeless in Cincinnati, and their average age is 9. Homeless children on average change schools 7 to 8 times a year. Faces Without Places makes these children its priority. It provides uniform vouchers, school supplies, rides to school, and whatever it takes to keep these kids in school. There is also a summer camp every year. This summer the theme was Eat Smart, Play Smart, Be Smart. The kids focused on reading, math and healthy activities in the morning. The afternoons were used for enrichment activities like trips to the polls and other attractions. Both breakfast and lunch were provided to the children each day.

All this costs money and you can help Faces Without Places raise money by having a good time. The Yellow Ball boasts live and silent auction items, "dinner by the bite: games and an open bar. I will be there. Hopefully you will too. Find out more information at http://www.faceswithoutplaces.org/

Have a great Tuesday
