Event description

Description

Did you know that approximately 50,000 men and women are incarcerated in the state of Ohio? Perhaps you, or someone you love, has been affected by incarceration. For the past 17 years, The RIDGE Project has been working to stop generational cycles of incarceration by offering it's nationally recognized, award-winning program inside prisons, county jails, juvenile detention centers, and reentry facilities in Ohio and across the nation. The program, called TYRO, focuses on keeping families intact and preparing men and women to lead their children into a future defined by hope.

By attending our 2018 fundraising gala, you have an opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself and to help support a change that can impact generations to come! Your ticket includes a buffet dinner and powerful keynote address by Hill Harper, best-selling author and co-star of ABC's "The Good Doctor." Harper also starred in the CBS hit drama "CSI:NY" and Showtime's award-winning series "Homeland."

Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz says, "I want to thank The RIDGE Project for the work it does to make Ohio a better place and thank them for choosing the Toledo Zoo, which has been recognized as the best zoo in the nation..."

The RIDGE Project has been fortunate in receiving multiple state and federal grants, but still, hundreds of men, women and youth are on waiting lists, hoping for a chance to participate. Your ticket purchase, and additional support, will help us to expand services into institutions and communities that have a desperate need, and desire, to create positive change through the TYRO program.

Don't stand on the sidelines. This is your time to help the "forgotten victims of crime," the families of the incarcerated. Get your tickets today!

Doors open at 5pm. Program begins promptly at 5:30pm.

Business attire is requested. High heels not recommended.

Event is open to adults 18 years and older.
