Guests will experience an exotic car exhibit, shop with local menswear designer Jonathan Mezibov, enjoy complimentary craft beers and bourbon, and can also schedule a service with the salon, as all proceeds from services at the event will benefit the charity. Cincinnati Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis will also be in attendance for a meet-and-greet and to raise awareness for the Marvin Lewis Community Fund.
The Marvin Lewis Community Fund was founded in 2003, and Barbara Dundee has been the Executive Director for six years. “We empower youth education in the Greater Cincinnati region through our outreach programs, the most significant of which are the Learning Is Cool academic rewards program, which engages over 30,000 urban public school students, and the Marvin Lewis Scholarship Fund which awards at least five $20,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors each year.”
The organization provides incentives to children to work hard to achieve their academic potential. Dundee continues, “The money raised from this event will help to fund an academic planner for each of the 30,000 students in Learning Is Cool. The planner contains a letter from Coach Lewis encouraging them to do their best so that they will get to meet him at the Cincinnati Zoo in June if they make the “A” Honor Roll (3.51+) twice during the school year.” To learn more about the Marvin Lewis Community Fund, visit www.marvinlewis.org.
The Oakley location of 18/8 Fine Men’s Salon is the first to open in Ohio. 18/8’s mission is to “help successful men transform themselves to look, feel and perform their best.”
The “Cuts, Cars & Coach for a Cause” event is free and open to the public. Meet-and-greet tickets are $20 and must be purchased prior to the event at cincinnatiprofile.com/
