CINCINNATI— Greater Cincinnati families celebrated Father’s Day at Sawyer Point during Talbert House’s Eighth Annual Fatherhood Community Celebration. Thousands attended the free event featuring games and entertainment, arts and crafts, food and beverages, sports activities, and live music from local bands.

Talbert House thanks the many volunteers and generous sponsors who made the celebration possible and a great success, including Performance Lexus and Midland Atlantic Properties. Food and beverages were supplied by Borden Dairy, Cincinnati Vending, Home City Ice, Klosterman, Kroger, LaRosa’s Pizzeria, Mailender, Reinhart Foodservice, Skyline Chili, and United Dairy Farmers. The Home Depot provided crafts for children, and Shining Star AAU played basketball with the whole family.

Live music was performed by the Latitudes House Band, Turned Up, and Deuces Musik. Signing autographs was former Cincinnati Reds players Ron Oester. Special guest appearances were also made by Mr. Redlegs, the UC Bearcat, Who Dey and the Ben-Gals, and Xavier’s D’Artagnan the Musketeer.

Talbert House is one of the leading advocates for promoting fatherhood. Talbert House’s Fatherhood Project assists men in their efforts to be responsible, committed, and nurturing fathers and is funded in part by the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood and United Way of Greater Cincinnati. The event was co-chaired by John Silverman, Andrew Limke, and Savon Gibson.
