Saturday, Nov. 17, 6 p.m., Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza
This year’s 65 Roses Gala, presented by the Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, will take on a Motown theme.
A cocktail hour accompanied by a silent auction will kick off the party, followed by a gourmet dinner with wine pairings from Tramonte & Sons and a live auction. After dinner, guests will dance to the music of The Mistics.
Over the past five years, the 65 Roses Gala has raised nearly $400,000 to help fight cystic fibrosis, a genetic, life-shortening disease. Sixty years ago, most children with CF did not live long enough to attend school, but research and health care innovations have brought the median survival age to approximately 47 years.
