In 2018, Cincinnati’s premier sneaker boutique, Corporate, and Bigger Than Sneakers (BTS) created the Annual Cincinnati Sneaker Ball, a fundraising event which features a picturesque evening of entertainment, tuxedos, ball gowns, and of course, sneakers. 

Each year, a different beneficiary is chosen for the event to support local youth-focused charitable organizations. Our beneficiaries for Sneaker ball have included the Ohio’s division of Cleats for Kids to gather funds to purchase 600 pairs of new shoes for local youth as part of their Ready to Run initiative and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Charitable Care Fund, which addresses financial distress associated with significant out-of-pocket medical costs faced by families of children suffering from chronic illnesses or disabling conditions. 

Special thanks to the following groups and individuals who have supported the event as sponsors over the years: Mercedes Benz of Fort Mitchell, Cincy Magazine, Batterii, Corporate, My Black is Beautiful (P&G), Jason Markk, Stance Socks, First Financial Bank, LuxCincy Real Estate, Mohamed Sanu (Atlanta Falcons), Darqueze Dennard (Cincinnati Bengals), Shawin Williams (Cincinnati Bengals), and John Ross III (Cincinnati Bengals).
