A longtime tradition continued this year as the Salvation Army received $36,600 from Western & Southern Financial Group. That sum included $18,300 from visitor donations at the Crib of the Nativity display at Eden Park’s Krohn Conservatory.
Western & Southern has sponsored the nativity display since 1939 and for many years has matched the monetary gifts left by visitors. Since 1994, donations and Western & Southern’s match have resulted in more than $250,000 for the Salvation Army.
“The Crib of the Nativity display is a true Cincinnati tradition,” said John F. Barrett, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Western & Southern.
