Finalist Announced For Uptown Celebration May 31st
Uptown is excited to announce the finalists for the upcoming Uptown Business Celebration.
Uptown Consortium is experiencing a surge of interest in its first Uptown Business Celebration, an event designed to recognize successful businesses and nonprofits throughout Uptown's five neighborhoods: Avondale, Clifton, Mt. Auburn, Corryville and Clifton Heights/University Heights/Fairview (CUF).
"Sponsorships and tickets are moving quickly," said Janelle Lee, director of Business and Community Affairs at Uptown Consortium. "We have exceeded our original goals, but are still promoting ticket sales to celebrate with as many friends, fans, and business and community partners as possible."
The inaugural event to be held May 31 revolves around two features. The first is the keynote speaker, recently hired University of Cincinnati Athletic Director Whit Babcock. Babcock also serves as the 2011-12 president of the National Association of Athletic Development Directors.
