Join Us (Not Really) for the 2023 No-Show Ball!

November 16, 2023

Now, we understand that you have a busy schedule, and the thought of attending another holiday-season function might not be at the top of your list. Well, fear not! The No-Show Ball is the perfect event for individuals who appreciate the finer things in life, like staying in the comfort of their own homes.

You see, at the No-Show Ball, there’s no need to find the perfect gown or dust off that tuxedo. Instead, we invite you to kick back, relax, and support the Ohio Genealogical Society from the comfort of your favorite chair.

“But how can I make a difference without attending?” you might ask. The answer is simple: by making a generous donation to our cause! Your support ensures that we can continue our mission of preserving Ohio’s rich genealogical history.

In the past year, the Ohio Genealogical Society has achieved remarkable milestones. We’ve successfully launched a captivating webinar series, made significant additions and improvements to our website, premiered the Ohio Roots podcast, and hosted a highly successful OGS Conference and OGS Fall Retreat – all thanks to supporters like you.

Your contribution to the No-Show Ball will directly fund these initiatives and allow us to reach even greater heights in the coming year. Whether it’s $25, $50, or a sum as extravagant as a ballroom gala, every dollar brings us one step closer to unlocking the secrets of Ohio’s ancestral past.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Ohio Genealogical Society. With your help, we can continue to build a legacy for future generations without the hassle of a bow tie.
