You Outdid Yourselves at Fall Fiesta 2017!

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Have you recovered from Fall Fiesta yet? We’re still reeling from the generosity and fun-loving spirit you showed at this event. Let’s reminisce about the top six highlights together, shall we?


The venue, food, drink, prizes, and games were superb this year, as always. Cincinnati’s skyline glittered outside the Great American Ball Park as you laughed with friends old and new, sipped some spirits, won everything from bottles of wine to trips to Africa and the Cayman Islands, and dined sumptuously on a full dinner.

We love it when you laugh with us.


Win a Luxury African Safari for Only $20

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Who doesn’t remember being six years old, face to face with a huge, gorgeous elephant? The elephant takes giant step after giant step towards you, all before opening its mouth to enormous dimensions to take in some well-earned grass from the savanna. The sun glows brightly overhead while the herd’s baby elephants spend some playtime in the nearby watering hole. Then, suddenly, your mom calls your name, the herd scatters, and poof! You’re startled out of your daydream.

Around here, most of us aren’t lucky enough to actually get to see an elephant in the wild. But YOU may get to live out your wildest childhood daydreams because…

This year’s luxury raffle winner will enjoy a six-day, six-night South African Safari for two!

Fall Fiesta: Ready for another Record-Breaking Year?

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Nonprofit event invitation

You blew us all away at last year’s Fall Fiesta by raising nearly $170,000 for CoEd’s educational programs in Guatemala. That’s right, $170,000. And we know that we can do it again this year! (more…)

Small Business Spotlight

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

CoEd supporters are the greatest. You’re generous, kind, silly, adventurous, compassionate, and a little competitive, too. (We’re talking about you, Rick and Rich!) Each of you has a story of what motivates you to help students in Guatemala and it gives us great pleasure to learn them. As we reflect (and celebrate you!) during Supporter Appreciation Month, we’ve been struck at how many among you are small business owners.

Owning your own business has always been part of the proverbial “American Dream”. And what often happens when that business begins to see success? Greed takes over and profit becomes king, right? Not for these businesses. They are using their success and entrepreneurial spirit to make a positive impact in the world.  We’re continually surprised by the out-of-the-box ways that you find to help children in Guatemala get a better education and overcome poverty, and we want to highlight a few business owners who inspire us.

Let’s get straight to it and review the night (and the results), shall we?

Well folks, that’s a wrap on another Fall Fiesta! We are beyond grateful and honored to have shared the night with so many wonderfully generous supporters (some of whom even flew in from across the country!).

In case you were in the most unfortunate position of missing out on this year’s Fall Fiesta, let us break down the magical evening for you…

Just when you thought Fall Fiesta couldn’t get any better, we’ve gone and amped up the fun factor another hundred notches. We’ve got some major changes in store for you that will make this Fall Fiesta more entertaining than ever before (no, that is not an exaggeration. It will be better than the very best day of your life. Better than the day your first child was born. Better than the day you learned how to dream. Better than the day your ragtag ice hockey team defied the odds and beat Russia in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Better than… okay, you get the point. It’s going to be a great event).

You are NOT going to want to miss this one, folks, and here’s why (drum roll, please):

1. Piñata Raffle: Piñatas. At. Fall. Fiesta. Need we say more? We will anyway: You will have the chance to bid on and hit piñatas at Fall Fiesta. Yes, HIT piñatas! Take out all of your pent-up aggression on some papier-mâché monstrosities and win awesome prizes at the same time. That’s what we in the biz call a “win-win”. (more…)
