Cincinnati's Finest Finale at Bell Event Center

Last evening, the lovely Robin and I got to accompany our daughter Aubrey, son-in-law Kevin, and friends Corey and Jessica to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation event, Cincinnati's Finest Finale at the Bell Event Center.
The gorgeous venue was built in 1850 as St. Paul’s Church. The church was decommissioned in 1975 and stood empty for six years. In 1981, The Verdin Company, North America’s oldest bell and clock company, purchased and restored the structure, to the tune of one and a half million dollars. After the two-year-long work was completed, the beautiful building housed The Verdin Company corporate headquarters and the Verdin Bell and Clock Museum.
Cincinnati’s “Finest” Finale is an event where guests join to celebrate the “Finest” Young Professionals’ fundraising efforts while partaking in a delicious tasting and silent auction all under one roof. The guests sip and savor some of the finest wines, finest beer, finest cupcakes and sample by-the-bite foods from the finest local restaurants. All attendees vote on their favorites of each category; the finest wine, beer, cupcake, and restaurant are awarded at the end of the night, along with naming the young professional who has won the title of Cincinnati’s “Finest”.

It's an impressive event for a great cause, one that is near and dear to our hearts.
