Hats Off Luncheon

Presented by the Women’s Committee of Cincinnati Parks

The 14th annual Hats Off Luncheon was a celebration of our diverse and resilient community across your many parks.

Many of our Cincinnati Parks are the backyards for families, as well as gathering places for our communities. As we navigated this year’s uncertainty, we asked our supporters to stand with us to help us fulfill our mission. The Hats Off Luncheon helps raise critical funds for preservation and programming initiatives that benefit all of us today, as well as future generations. Cincinnati’s Parks are for everyone—now more than ever.


On October 2nd, we invited you to take a small group of friends or family to your favorite neighborhood Cincinnati Park to partake in a community picnic. 

Donors received a collapsible, insulated picnic basket which included:
  • A curated lunch for two by Eat Well Celebrations
  • Prosecco splits with flutes
  • A multi-cultural decoration from milliner Abby Langdon
  • Other picnic essentials
  • Access to the Hats Off Luncheon video “special” featuring entertainment, music, a message from Parks leadership and sponsors, and a celebration of posthumous Phyllis W. Smale award winners, Donald and Marian Spencer
  • NEW THIS YEAR: For every picnic basket purchased, in addition to supporting our mission, a donation was made  to the Cincinnati Recreation Commission, to provide meals for children experiencing food insecurity.
