reasons to attend Fall Fiesta

Ahh, fall. That magical time of year when the leaves turn brilliant shades of orange, red, and burnt sienna (yeah, I had the expansion pack of Crayola crayons as a child), and everyone agrees that pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING is like sooooo delicious.  But that’s not all autumn has to offer. It’s also time for Cincinnati’s favorite party of the year: Fall Fiesta. Here are five reasons you need to buy your ticket to this fun-filled event RIGHT NOW.

Bob Herzog is our emcee extraordinaire for the evening. Of Channel 12 “Dance Party Friday” fame, Bob is the most hilarious news anchor you’re likely to ever meet, and he’s all ours for the evening of October 18th! Check out his song parody from the movie “Frozen”. You won’t be sorry.

We have an astounding array of great live auction packages this year, including two tickets to the 2015 MLB All Star Game and Home Run Derby held right here in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is not a typo. You will actually have the chance to bid on these incredibly difficult to procure tickets. Click here to view the entire list of live auction items.

VIP Fall Fiesta Guests (besides you, of course)

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

In June, we announced the date of Fall Fiesta 2014: A Stroll through the Markets of Guatemala (Saturday, October 18, 2014, in case you need a refresher). Get ready for Big Announcement Part Deux…

Two VIPs will be attending Fall Fiesta to share their special story with YOU.

Juan and Maria Tacaxoy

Juan and Maria Tacaxoy want to meet you at Fall Fiesta!

Some of you have met the Tacaxoy family. Many of you have heard of them. All of you now have the chance to meet Maria and Juan Tacaxoy at Fall Fiesta. That’s right; this sibling duo is traveling all the way from Guatemala to Cincinnati to meet you.

Maria Tacaxoy (6)

Here’s little Maria when we first met her over a decade ago.

Maria Tacaxoy is the oldest of four children. We met when a group of volunteers spent the morning at her elementary school on the shores of Lake Atitlan in Santiago Atitlan. Maria was on the verge of dropping out of school when she met Joe and Rebecca Berninger (you may have heard of  them…) when they visited her school in Santiago Atitlan. Fortuitously, bright, young Maria was accepted into CoEd’s Scholarship & Youth Development program so she could continue her education! (more…)

Friday Photo Fiesta: Donor Thank You Events

Friday, April 25th, 2014

As we near the end of Donor Appreciation Month at CoEd we wanted one last hurrah to celebrate those who are in the “inner circle” of CoEd supporters —members of the Literacy and Learning Society, Legacy Society, on the Board of Trustees and those who have traveled with us to Guatemala.  Here is a glimpse of the fun events they enjoyed this week!

Sad you didn’t get an invite? Join us on the next Snapshot Tour and you can be invited to next event for Tour Veterans! Or consider joining our Literacy and Learning Society or Legacy Society to ensure that children in Guatemala will continue to break the cycle of poverty for many years to come.
