Keynote Speaker: Cal Ripken Jr.
The real Ironman is coming to Cincinnati! Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. will be the keynote speaker at this year's Good Scout Award Luncheon. The annual fundraising event, hosted by the Dan Beard Council headquartered in Evendale, is planned for Feb. 26th at the Duke Energy Convention Center. It is one of the top 10 largest fundraisers in Cincinnati each year, and draws more than 1,400 attendees.
