Covington Ladies Home 2016

Anisa Willis and Michelle Krumpelman, committee member and Gold SponsoThe Metropolitan Club lent its glamour and the nearly 170 guests brought the glitz to the gala celebrating the 130th anniversary of the Covington Ladies Home.

The gathering saluted the Ladies Home’s legacy of caring for elderly women who can no longer live alone safely.

Guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner, dessert and dancing to live music by The Turkeys. The live auction awarded trips to Paris and the Biltmore Estate. A silent auction featured more than 40 packages. Local 12 anchor Sheila Gray was emcee.

Platinum-Elite sponsor was TriHealth; Gold sponsor was Andrew and Michelle Krumpelman/Biltmore Estate Wine Company; and Bronze sponsors were RiverPoint Capital Management and the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation.

The Ladies Home’s “130 Years & Counting” capital campaign, launched in August, is a three-year campaign aimed at raising $3.5 million for a new one-floor building attached to the main Victorian building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of Interior.
