2015 Celebration of Philanthropy

Your Gift to the CAE is your ticket*


Kathy Hoch & Alan Strohschein
2015 Philanthropists of the Year

Our Community easily becomes your family when you “discover” the many ways to give back to it. This year we are honoring Kathy Hoch and Alan Strohschein as Columbus Area Endowment’s 2015 Philanthropists of the Year. Kathy and Alan embody the spirit of how to “discover” ways to make the Columbus Area a great place to live, learn, work, and play. They consider the Columbus Area community to be their family. Kathy and Alan have helped their family by numerous philanthropic efforts over the years and are thankful that the Columbus Area Endowment has established a permanent fund to help their "family."

The Columbus Area Endowment asks you to invest in the Columbus Area "family" by sponsoring the upcoming 2015 Celebration of Philanthropy to honor and celebrate Kathy & Alan for all of their good works.

With Kathy and Alan's encouragement and their personal commitment of $5,000, we have set a goal to raise $50,000 between the night of the event and the end of 2015. Your gift to the CAE is your ticket to the event* and your sponsorship in any amount will help the Columbus Area. Please join us:

Saturday, November 7th
6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Kestrel Ridge, 900 Avalon Road in Columbus

There will be music by the Columbus area band  “Convoy”, hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar at the event.  It is great for a night out on the town with friends and family. We hope to see you there!




*Tickets for the Philanthropist of the Year event are valued at $25.00 each. Federal law limits your charitable income tax deduction to the excess of your contribution over the value of goods and services received. Please consider this when determining the tax deductibility of your gift.
