The Triple Crown Country Club was the setting for our Annual Spring Luncheon.

We had over one hundred and twenty-five attendees for this great event. With speakers Matthew Schumann, Development Manager of the American Cancer Society, and Kathrine Nero, WCPO TV News Anchor, our luncheon meeting discussions focused on Cancer and taking aim for the cure. Our event featured a Derby theme - hats galore and spring was in the air. Pink balloons commemorating the cure for cancer floated in the room. Live Auctions, Silent Auctions and the Bling Table were part of the wonderful agenda that helped make our meeting such a great success. Thank you to everyone who made this an event to remember.
