The Spirit of Construction Foundation earnestly prepares for the Celebration of Construction Gala.

The first event is the 4th annual Spring Fling Meeting. This event serves as a membership meeting. SOC grants will be awarded to its deserving recipients, and this year's Lifetime Achievement Honorees will be announced, to be celebrated at the gala event at the end of the year.

The Spring Fling Meeting is on May 7th, at the Maketewah Country Club. For more event information and RSVP information, click here. The last day to RSVP is Tuesday, April 29th.

Earl K. Messer, Esq., chair of Taft Law’s Construction Law Practice Group, leads the Spirit of Construction Foundation’s 2014 Celebration of Construction Gala as this year's chair.

On what to expect at this year's gala, Messer explains, "This year's celebration will be much better than last year's, with new twists, new honors, and overall more to look forward to. We have several great ideas for the coming gala, and I cannot wait to see how they unfold."

The 19th annual banquet dinner will take place on Saturday, October 18th at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati. It will celebrate the year’s Spirit of Construction programs and will honor life time achievers in the construction industry.  

For gala ticket and table information, contact Tony Brunsman at tbrunsman@spiritofconstruction.org or (513)382-4315. Last year's event sold out.

The principal purpose of the Spirit of Construction Foundation is to recognize, celebrate, and elevate the construction industry and its contributions to the civic, aesthetic, and economic well-being of the Greater Cincinnati region. This includes activities such as honoring eminent constructors for their achievements, and promoting and funding civic, educational, and training initiatives that benefit the construction industry.
