While the Broncos and the Panthers had their troubles with touchdowns at Super Bowl 50, one local group scored big with its Touchdown for HOPE.
The upscale Super Bowl watch party at Great American Ball Park Champions Club, raised awareness about mental illness and funds for research at Lindner Center of HOPE. The Super Bowl party featured big screen TVs, plush seating, signature Cincinnati food favorites and other upscale tailgate-style treats.
While final figures aren’t in for this year’s event, Touchdown for HOPE has consistently raised over $200,000 since its inception in 2010.
Proceeds will enhance local research being done in bipolar and mood disorders at Lindner Center of HOPE.
“The research occurring in the field right now is extremely exciting. The positive steps we are taking in genetic research and medication development are ones that I never thought I’d live to see,”
said Dr. Susan L. McElroy, Lindner Center of HOPE Chief Research Officer.
