How We Give Back
The Village of Mariemont Luminaria event is our annual fundraiser. The money raised is used to fund a project in the community voted on by members of our group. Most recently our money has been used to help fund new playground equipment, fencing and bathroom facilities at Dogwood Park “TOT LOT” (located at the corner of Wooster Pike and Pleasant Street in Mariemont).
In addition to giving back to the village, each year we also donate 10% of our Luminaria proceeds to a charitable cause voted on by members of our group. In 2014, our donation was given to the backpack ministry at Mariemont Schools. This program provides weekend breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks to approximately 30 children in our school district. In 2012, 2013, and 2015, our donation was used to update the young children’s area at the Mariemont Branch of the Hamilton County Public Library and to enhance the “Movers and Shakers” preschool library program at this branch.
