Cincinnati Union Bethel (CUB) celebrated its 180th Anniversary on August 26 at the Hilton Netherland Plaza with a breakfast and awards ceremony.
Don Hoffman, President and CEO of the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati, received the Legacy Award, given to someone who has truly left a legacy of positive change and influence in their path. Stephanie Byrd, Executive Director of Success by 6, received the On the Shoulders of Giants Award, which recognizes individuals who have taken the initiative and implemented new policies that move the community toward a more effective support system for Cincinnati's children. Douglas Roberts, an attorney at Thompson Hine, and Jack Rosen, retired judge, received the Chairperson's Award, which recognizes board members for their outstanding volunteer contributions to the agency.
Dan Hurley, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber's Director of Leadership Cincinnati and host of Newsmakers on Channel 12, was the emcee.
During the celebration, President and CEO Steve MacConnell said, If Cincinnati Union Bethel were not here those children would not be ready for kindergarten; if the Anna Louise Inn was not here, those women would not have had safe, affordable housing; if the Off the Streets program didn't exist, we would have women suffering on the streets, not having a chance to become a healthy, vibrant citizen of the community.
