Annunciation School’s 100th Birthday Celebration on Saturday!

AnnunciationThis Saturday, March 1 Annunciation School will host its 100th Birthday Dinner/Silent Auction. The event will take place at the Clovernook Country Club from 6:30 – 11:00 pm and will include cocktails, a sit down dinner and a silent auction. Musically the evening will be a treat as well, with the Steve Schmidt Jazz Ensemble performing. Steve has been a fixture of the Cincinnati jazz scene for decades, and it’s cool that this member of Annunciation’s 1970 graduating class can show the alma mater some of what he’s learned since graduating! Also, Claudia Taylor has put together a PHENOMENAL SILENT AUCTION for the event; there’s more information on that here.

Culinarily speaking, the evening starts with cocktails and hot hors d’oeurves being passed. The sit down dinner is: Mixed Greens Salad with Cranberry & Feta, Both Chicken Alouette & Beef Tenderloin, Medley of Mixed Vegetables, Custard Potatoes, fabulous rolls & butter, and ending with Dark Chocolate Mousse w/Raspberry Sauce.

Reservations AND Payments MUST BE IN by Thursday 2/27. $75/Person or $600/Table of 8. Mail your Payment to Lynn Overbeck Hughes, 583 Wirham Pl., Cincinnati, Ohio, 45220. Call Lynn @ 513-961-3034 for more details.  SCHOOL PARENTS: feel comfortable giving your reservation and payment to fellow Event Chairs, Claudia Taylor & Chris Morsch.

Finally, here’s footage of Steve Schmidt performing the very beautiful Miles Davis composition, “Nardis:”

Where to Be on April 28: The 5th Annual Annunciation Gaslight Gala

Rarely in this blog do we announce events more than a month in advance, but there’s one event that readers need to mark on their calendars now. Located in the heart of the Gaslight District, Annunciation Church has been a centerpiece in Clifton since it was built in 1910. Right next to the church, at 3545 Clifton Avenue, is the Annunciation School, which is nearing its 100-year anniversary (it opened in 1914). All the proceeds from the 5thAnnual Annunciation Gaslight Gala benefits this preschool and K-8 school. The Gala gets bigger every year, and although I rarely make predictions, I’m just going to come out and say that this one will break all previous records. You’ll be hearing more about this event, but for right now here’s some information so you can mark your calendar:
