1 Night, 12 Kitchens

1 Night, 12 Kitchens is one of the premier culinary events of the region.

In 2017, 1 Night, 12 Kitchens will take place Sunday, April 30, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.


This unforgettable culinary experience helps meet our region’s culinary and hospitality employment needs and has raised over $700,000 in scholarships. Limited tickets are sold for this event that offers our guests the opportunity to:

  • Mingle with the region’s top chefs
  • Sample amazing and creative gourmet fare & taste select wines and beers from more than 35 participating restaurants and distributors
  • Explore 12 state-of-the-art kitchens at The Midwest Culinary Institute
  • Change lives, with the proceeds going directly to scholarship support for deserving culinary students

Community support for 1 Night, 12 Kitchens helps attract a sell-out crowd year after year, and allows people throughout the region to learn more about Cincinnati State's amazing culinary programs and our partners and supporters.

President’s Gala

Cincinnati State launched a new event, the President's Gala, in 2014 in recognition of our 45 years of service to the community. This black tie event honored organizations and individuals who have made significant contributions of time, talent, and treasure to Cincinnati’s State mission.

Scholarship Golf Classic

The Cincinnati State Foundation Scholarship Golf Classic is the Foundation’s largest source of unrestricted scholarship dollars, so participants have a great time, while helping a great cause. Play is limited to the first 120 golfers. Each participant enjoys 18 holes of golf with a cart, lunch, drinks on the course, a player's gift valued over $100, a nineteenth hole reception, buffet dinner, and special awards.

All proceeds from the Scholarship Golf Classic are directed to the Foundation’s unrestricted scholarship fund. Over the past 15 years, nearly 600 students have received financial assistance from the proceeds of this event.

As a Scholarship Golf Classic participant or sponsor, you immediately further the College’s efforts to assist students with financial needs.

Please remember: 100% of your sponsorship donation directly supports scholarships for our students.

Scholarship Recognition Event

Each year in November, Cincinnati State offers thanks to donors who support scholarships at our Scholarship Recognition Event. Donors meet the student recipients whose lives and educational goals are assisted through the generosity of community donors. The Scholarship Recognition Event is an invitation-only event.
