Tis the Season…



Results will be announced after the Thanksgiving Holiday!


Cincinnati Women Bloggers is very excited to announce:


Suggested Donation: $10 at the door

And everyone is invited. Tell your friends, your neighbors, random strangers you meet on the street – try not to scare them of course!

In other words you need not be a blogger or a woman or a Cincinnatian or a blogging woman or a blogging Cincinnatian or a blogging Cincinnatian woman or even know what a blog or a woman or a Cincinnatian is. You just need ten bucks and some holiday spirit.

All proceeds from the evening will go to worthy, local charity.

More details will be sent your way very soon, but in the meantime, we need your help.

First, we need your input on who the local charity should be.

VOTING HAS ENDED – THANKS TO ALL WHO VOICED THEIR OPINION.  Results will be announced after the Thanksgiving Holiday!

Hurry! Voting will end on Wednesday, November 26th at 11:59pm EST.

Trouble deciding? More information about each of these organizations can be found on their websites:

Women Helping Women

Interfaith Hospitality Network of Northern Kentucky

Freestore Foodbank of Greater Cincinnati

Second, we need everyone to help gather giveaways for the raffle and silent auction. Shake those trees people. It’s that time of the year and sometimes all people need to be their baddest giving selves is a simple request from YOU! So don’t let them down. No gift is too small and we will of course talk up the generosity of such wonderful people – you AND the givers!

You can leave a comment here with any questions or donation offerings.
