Families Flourish’s Power of Opportunity fundraiser is planned for Thursday, December 7 from 5:30-7 p.m. This year's theme is "Access. Equity. Opportunity. "

Join NBC4’s Colleen Marshall as she emcees the 8th annual Power of Opportunity event, where you’ll hear from keynote Cameron Mitchell.

Mitchell put Columbus restaurants on the map and continues to bring Central Ohio hospitality to new locales. But did you know that for 14 months in 1993, he had no income and no consistent roof over his head?

Join us to hear how Mitchell overcame hard times to create a worldwide restaurant group, and why he feels he has stood in the shoes of our families.

And plan to join our VIP book signing with Mitchell - bring your own book, or let us supply you one that night! The VIP experience includes a specialty cocktail from High Banks Distillery while you wait for your book signing.

Cocktail: Maple Old Fashioned  


Maple Infused Demerara Simple Syrup, High Bank Whiskey War, angostura bitters, orange bitters, orange peel 

We will start the evening with the first-ever Steve Heiser Awards, honoring the Kelley Family, CASTO Communities, and Mrs. Fran DeWine.

Eat, drink, DONATE, and meet some members of our new families and our pilot families.  Colleen Marshall will lead a panel discussion with current moms.

The mission of Families Flourish is to create a more equitable community for families by empowering them to achieve and succeed through a holistic support initiative.  

Be part of our growth! Tickets fuel our invitation for the next families to enter our unique program. The family you help may very well be a family living around the corner.
