Great American Ballpark Champions Club
A Super Thank You to All Supporters
This year’s Touchdown for HOPE hit record attendance with over 400 attendees for the 5th annual event. Anthony & Dede Muňoz, were the Honorary Co-Chairs again this year. Former Bengals player’s Ickey Woods and Eric Thomas also attended the party. Great American Ballpark provided the perfect casual environment with couches, recliners, and numerous televisions- something for every fan. Guests enjoyed Cincinnati favorites which included Skyline Chili, LaRosa’s, Montgomery Inn and United Diary Farmers. The New York theme was carried out with New York Subs, Cheesecakes and specialty drinks.
The event raised $130,000 which will benefit the Bipolar and Mood disorders research fund at Lindner Center of HOPE. Dr. Paul E. Keck, Jr., President & CEO of Lindner Center of HOPE, thanked the crowd for attending and helping make a difference in alleviating all those suffering with mental illness. Though Dr. Keck did not have a team favorite for the Super Bowl, he used the analogy of the famed Seattle 12th man, and the impact the crowd can have on a team. He pointed out that everyone at the event was indeed the 12th man for Lindner Center of HOPE.
