The newly renovated Transept event venue across from Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine will host ReSource’s annual fall fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 3. The historic 1868 structure is one of a number of abandoned local churches that have found new life in recent years.

“We are excited to be one of the first organizations to host an event in this remarkable space,” say ReSource event co-chairs, Gwen Barker and Stephanie McCall. “Not only will this event celebrate ReSource’s donors, volunteers and community partners, but it will give our guests a chance to experience a truly transformed part of Cincinnati’s history.”
 
ReSource supports the nonprofit community by distributing excess corporate donations such as office furniture, personal care items and other supplies.
 
At the Oct. 3 event, ReSource will present the Corporate Community Partner Award to RCF Group and the Non-Profit Community Partner Award to Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services.
 
“This is a nice networking party where sponsors can meet each other and be encouraged by each other … even though some of them are competitors,” says ReSource Development Director Martha Steier.
 
ReSource, which is privately supported, depends on funding from the community, Steier says, and has a goal of raising more than $125,000 at the fall event, which will feature a raffle, giveaways and a photo booth.
 
Do Good:

• "Like" ReSource on Facebook to learn more about how the organization serves the local nonprofit community.

• Volunteer your time at the Oct. 3 event; contact Martha Steier for more information.

• ReSource is always looking for gently used donations to redistribute to nonprofits in need.
