About The Point Arc of Northern Kentucky

“Our mission is to provide opportunities to people with special needs to reach their highest potential? educationally, residentially, socially and vocationally.”

Since 1972 The Point has offered inclusive programs via a fully integrated approach in community settings to those with special needs. Our approach is unique in that over 60% of our revenue comes from our own programs. Without the continued, loyal support of our business and supporter community we could not have touched as many lives as we have- thank you!

About The Presenter, The Smith Family Foundation

The mission of The Smith Family Foundation is to facilitate philanthropy, and it is committed to do just that by presenting The Greater Cincy Golf Ball Drop, on November, 1 2014, with the theme of "Together Together".

Did you know that over fifty percent of the 1.8 million charities in America and millions worldwide have budgets of under $2.5 million. In Greater Cincinnati alone there are more than 7,000 non-profits. Out of those, over a 5000 have no budget, spending as much as sixty percent of their time just keeping their doors open. This has to change.

TSFF has developed some outstanding programs that provide non-profits with fundraising opportunities to allow them more time to inspire, educate, motivate and celebrate.

And who is our pelican?

The pelican legend was first inspired in 1997 during a visit to Old St George Catholic Church on Calhoun Street. She has become the theme for The Celebration of Champions Annual Event which NOW is the signature event for TSFF and our celebration of philanthropy in 2010’s “The Secret of Living is Giving Award.”

Our pelican is named “Lucy” in honor of the events Founder Gale Smith’s deceased mother, Francis Lucille Smith. She will contain numbered WIFFLE golf balls to be dropped onto the field from a crane, as it hovers approximately 200 feet above mid-field. Prizes are awarded based on the winning numbered WIFFLE golf balls being closest to a targeted area. This cascading of thousands of numbered balls toward targets will be a spectacle to behold!

Corporate partners will provide an additional layer of funds through event sponsorship.

We anticipate a mass audience, entertainment, music and participating sponsors and charitable organizations. Funds raised will directly benefit The Point/Arc of Northern Kentucky.

Now is the time to be in on this transformational approach to charitable fundraising.

This year’s goal of $400,000 will increase to $1MM in 2015 and is anticipated to exponentially increase in the year’s ahead.
