Christmas in July Benefiting Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Ohio Valley Voices & the Loveland Initiative
With the motto “People helping People”, the Loveland Fraternal Order of Eagles #3006, 127 N. Karl Brown Way, is bringing holiday cheer to area youth a few months early with their 3rd annual “Christmas In July” fundraiser on Saturday, July 18, from Noon-11 PM.
Come and see how they “deck the halls” at this unique celebration! Guests are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Financial proceeds raised through sponsorship, games, silent auctions, raffles, etc., will benefit all three charities. Last year, this event raised over $15,000, as well as collected over 150 toys.
The day begins with breakfast being served by the Eagle Riders at 8 AM. The Eagle Riders will then host a Poker/Toy Run, with kickstands up at 10 AM. The riders will visit and collect toys and donations at 5 local FOE clubs and return to the Loveland FOE around 5 PM.
Beginning at noon, this event welcomes the entire community, and features live musical entertainment, silent auctions, raffles, children’s games and the Santa Band performs at 3:30 PM and welcomes Santa promptly at 4 PM.
