Over $115K Raised at Annual Fundraiser for NKY Organization
Redwood’s yearly signature fundraiser, Redwood Express, drew over 450 attendees who enjoyed a Roaring 20’s themed event at the Newport Syndicate on March 4.
Attendees enjoyed live music, buffet with open bar, live and silent auctions, and other entertainment. Proceeds exceeding $115,000 were raised from sponsorships and generous donors. All proceeds directly benefit Redwood, a nonprofit organization providing educational, therapeutic, and vocational services to children and adults with disabilities.
Co-chairs of the event were Cole and Kasey Bond, who have co-chaired the Redwood Express event for the past three years. This year's celebrity emcee was Dan Wells from FOX 19 News.
The corporate sponsors for this year's event were:
- Puttin’ On the Ritz Sponsors: Bilz Insurance and Grange Insurance
- Art Deco Sponsors: KMK Law, The Kroger Co. and PNC Bank
- All That Jazz Sponsors: Crawford Insurance & Penny Crawford, Federal Equipment Company, Fifth Third Bank Lawrence & Associates, Levi Strauss & Co., Paul & Julie McCauley and Victory Community Bank and Victory Mortgage
Next year’s 2017 Redwood Express will mark the 35th anniversary of the event and will celebrate the Emerald Anniversary with a trip to the Emerald City. The 2017 fundraiser will entertain attendees with a Wizard of Oz themed gala. For additional information, contact Beth Moore at [email protected] or 859-331-0880 x 297.
