Loveland, Ohio – “Loveland Legacy Foundation’s Dinner en Rouge continues to get bigger and better. We appreciate all those who participated and made it such a great event. The money we raised will go a long way to help our neighbors in need. As usual, we experienced outstanding support from the Loveland community. Time and time again it’s proven that Loveland is a special place,” said Sue Peterson the Chair of the 2023 Dinner en Rouge. “We are still putting together final receipts, but we will be somewhere between $20,000 and $21,000. A big jump from last year when we raised $13,600.”

The event was the Loveland Legacy Foundation’s Dinner en Rouge last Saturday at The Landing Event Center in Historic Downtown Loveland. It was, “An evening of fellowship, fundraising, and community!” Guests were invited to wear their best “Loveland red couture”, enjoy a fabulous meal, and dance.

For five years the Loveland Legacy Foundation has provided support to those in crisis, area organizations, and businesses in need with the mission to “Improve the community through an action-based culture, engaging with organizations sharing a common vision, connecting needs to solutions.”

In other words, to “Keep Our Communities STRONG”.

Twenty-four-year-old Loveland resident, Maddie Fedder was given special recognition for her contribution to the Dinner en Rouge and her personal fundraising to provide the complete companion dog training that is so absolutely necessary for Maddie’s health.
