2018 Partners in Action Luncheon
 

Cincinnati (May 17, 2018) – Cincinnati business and community leaders united for an uplifting, one-hour event to support an extraordinary organization that is changing lives at the 15th Annual Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Partners in Action Luncheon. Over 50 advocates of the Sisters invited friends, family and coworkers to meet the Sisters, and to learn about the work they are doing all over the world, going where they are needed most, and ministering where others may not choose to go. Stories about the Sisters’ work in prisons, with refugees at the border of Brazil, and in Cincinnati to end human trafficking, were shared with over 500 attendees while helping to raise nearly $380,000 for Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur educational programs and ministries.
