On Saturday, November 13 Learning Grove will host its annual Gala in the Grove at Paul Brown Stadium 6-11 p.m.
This event will allow supporters to receive an update on the organization and mingle with other guests while enjoying an evening in downtown Cincinnati.
After a year’s hiatus due to COVID-19, the nonprofit organization is returning to an in-person event.
One highlight of the event is Shannon Jones, Executive Director of Groundwork Ohio, receiving Learning Grove’s Charity in Action Award. Jones’ leadership has grown Groundwork Ohio’s statewide advocacy efforts into a national model for coalition-building and policy success.
“Learning Grove is a proud partner of Groundwork Ohio. We value the commitment and dedication Shannon has devoted to providing access to high-quality childcare for children and families throughout Ohio,” said Learning Grove CEO, Shannon Starkey-Taylor. “We are honored Shannon has agreed to accept this award and we look forward to celebrating with her on November 13th.”
Shannon Jones said, “It’s an honor to receive Learning Grove’s Charity in Action Award. Learning Grove is an incredible organization that is improving the lives of children and families. I value their expertise and creativity as an advocacy partner and look forward to continuing to advance our shared vision and mission. I know our strong partnership to improve early care and education for children in Ohio will flourish well into the future.”
