The Association of Voluneers was formed in 1964 to provide tender loving care for children with chronic conditions requiring long-term hospital care.

It remains steadfast in its mission to provide funds for innovative programs, research and equipment to improve the quality of care given to patients. This year the auxiliary celebrates the 50th anniversary of their premiere fundraising event, the Cincinnati Art & Antiques Festival. Proceeds from the event have provided more than $4 million of support to improve the health and lives of children.
