2016 Blue Ribbon Bash

The blue ribbon is the international symbol for child abuse prevention and serves as a call to action for the role that we all must play to protect children from all forms of abuse and neglect.  All proceeds from the Blue Ribbon Bash support the child abuse treatment, prevention and education services that Family Nurturing Center provides to thousands of children and families in Greater Cincinnati.
