One Human Family's Founders Dinner



One Human Family's Founders Dinner at the Banker's Club wasn't so much a fund-raiser as it was an appreciation and awards dinner celebrating diversity.

The 1-year-old human rights organization dedicated to ending discrimination based on age, race, disability and sexual orientation honored the founders who paid $100 to seed the organization, as well as corporations and individuals who have distinguished themselves battling discrimination.

The sold-out dinner attracted 120 and handed out Commitment to Diversity Awards to WCPO-TV (Channel 9); Mo Rouse; her husband, Jack, and his Jack Rouse Associates; and lawyer Bob Laufman for a lifetime in the diversity trenches.

While the event wasn't strictly a fund-raiser, it still made about $3,000 for future One Human Family projects.
