Ambassador Appreciation Night

Evening October 16

The Reserve (4thand Race)

The Downtown Residents Council is planning its second annual Ambassador Appreciation this Fall. The evening will include a non-alcoholic reception and buffet, a raffle and a Cincinnati Gift Card for each Ambassador. To be hosted at The Reserve (4thand Race) this year, the event provides a great opportunity for the Ambassadors, who keep our city clean and safe, to see the inside of the buildings they work in front of everyday.


Do you have a relationship with any Downtown restaurant owners/managers who might donate restaurant gift cards or food for the buffet?
Can you make a donation to DRC for the purchase of the Cincinnati Gift Cards for each Ambassador—our goal is a $40 card for each Ambassador, who number approximately 35-37 people, roughly $1,500.
Do you have any UNUSED gift cards or other appropriate items that would fit into the Ambassador Raffle?
The DRC HOSTS for this event are:

Mary Heimert DRCsocialscincy@yahoo.com 847-921-1469
Roz Florez rozflorez@yahoo.com 513-646- 9958
Jackie Brysonjsbryson@yahoo.com 513-604-4637

Please contact any of the hosts for more information and to make donations. Donations via check are preferred, made out to DRC (Downtown Residents Council).

Our first Ambassador gathering was in June 2016 and the Ambassadors still talk about the event! They are so important to Downtowners and we want to assure our 2018 event is as memorable!

Unfortunately, because of space limitations, this isn't an event that we can make it open to all. With 40 Ambassadors plus servers, food deliverers etc., we are only able to invite a few members to keep things tidy and moving!
