Enchanted Evening in the Woods–Back to Nature 2018
Cincinnati Nature Center’s Back to Nature Signature Gala
Enchanted Evening in the Woods
Milford, Ohio … Join Cincinnati Nature Center on Saturday, May 12th for its ultimate party in the woods at the magnificent Krippendorf Lodge in Milford. This year’s annual springtime gala, Back to Nature, promises to be an Enchanted Evening in the Woods with proceeds supporting conservation and education efforts, including school programs and summer camps for underserved youth.
The Nature Center’s EarthKids Summer Camp has given more than a thousand local disadvantaged local youth the opportunity to experience the natural world firsthand. Children come from all over the region, referred through social service partners, and often live in neighborhoods with little access to green space. Through summer camps, after-school clubs and field trips, children are provided the opportunity to go outside and do fun, hands-on activities that nurture a love and respect of the outdoors.
Back to Nature offers a unique opportunity for guests to mingle under the stars, while viewing dozens of pieces of nature-themed art displayed for silent auction. The evening also includes a signature cocktail, sumptuous dinner by Elegant Fare, and live music. Special guest Jeff Thomas of Q102-FM will be emcee. An exclusive highlight of the event will be a chance to meet famed artist John Ruthven as he sketches on the lodge’s terrace, and the chance to own his finished wildlife sketch.
Dazzling silent and live auction packages include a private river cruise for 30 guests, dinner party in your home with custom menu from the chef at Mazunte, getaways to Paris, Palm Springs, and Sanibel, an extravagant date night package with jewelry from Paolo, A Modern Jeweler, and many more surprises.
The event begins at 6pm. Valet parking is provided. Tickets are $175, and tables of 8 are available. Dress is upscale garden party attire.
Supporting Sponsors are The Austin E. Knowlton Foundation, Western & Southern Financial Group and the Oliver Family Foundation.
