The Cincinnati Cancer Foundation will host a unique fundraising event on February 10th, 2022, at the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame featuring baseball legend and Cincinnati native Pete Rose. The event will benefit the mission of Cincinnati Cancer Advisors, a free, one-of-its-kind, second-opinion oncology clinic providing platinum-level consultative and financial navigation services to more than 300 Greater Cincinnati cancer patients each year.
The evening will commence at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring heavy appetizers and open bar and will continue with a seated dinner at 7:00 p.m. Pete’s conversation with local attorney and avid sports aficionado Fran Barrett will begin at 7:30 p.m. and conclude at approximately 9:00 p.m. (all times Eastern Standard Time). Prudent COVID-19 protocols in effect at the time (including optional face masking and social distancing to the extent practicable) will be observed throughout the evening and individuals unvaccinated against COVID-19 are kindly requested not to attend the event.
Sponsorships including a table for eight (8) persons, signage and social media recognition, and premium seating are available for $5,000. Individual tickets to the event are available at $250 per person and attendance will be limited to 200 persons in total. To inquire about sponsorships, individual tickets or a very limited number of VIP-level sponsorships that include a private “meet and greet” opportunity with Pete, please contact Steve Abbott at email@example.com or (859) 653-4686
We are very excited about bringing a Cincinnati icon back to town to not only help us remember a magical time in Cincinnati sports history, but also to combat an adversary that still takes more than 600,000 American lives each year. On the field, Pete demonstrated a work ethic and tenacity that inspired a generation of Cincinnatians to achieve great things in their lives. A true gift to our city. People with cancer must call on this same tenacity on a daily basis in their difficult fight against cancer. Like nearly all of us, Pete has lost loved ones to cancer and is eager to come back home to help us combat this unforgiving disease.
