Journey to Parenthood 2017


In partnership with Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound, our Journey to Parenthood 2017 event was an expedition featuring cocktails from Around the World to raise infertility awareness and money to support our mission.

Guests enjoyed cocktail tastings designed by Molly Wellmann of Wellmann’s Brands sponsored by Ron Erdmann at Guaranteed Rate, tasty bites from Chef’s Choice Catering,a photo booth from Liftoff Entertainment – DJ & Photo Booth Services and a souvenir rocks glass donated by Essig & Evans LLP. Thanks to Mollie Watson and Cincinnati’s Q102 (WKRQ) for emceeing the event and providing the evening’s entertainment.

Big thanks to the Institute for Reproductive Health for their generous donation of a complete IVF cycle (with medication) for our raffle.

THANK YOU again to the 350 attendees, numerous sponsors, donors, volunteers and Board of Directors who made the First Annual Journey to Parenthood event a HUGE success raising OVER $55,000 to support couples battling infertility!!!!
