Sundaes benefit micro-grants for innovative ideas

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Dozens of individuals gathered at Rhinegeist Brewery on Sunday afternoon for an ice cream social that funds micro-grants for innovative ideas in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.

For $5, attendees receive one sundae and one vote. At each event, four presenters will have four minutes to share their idea and the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions.

After the presentations, attendees will vote for their favorite idea and 100 percent of the money collected at the door will go directly to the idea that receives the most votes.

The first event kicked off on Sunday.

"There's five more events throughout this year. We are transferring the events from Cincinnati to Northern Kentucky, said Kristine Frech, a Cincy Sundae co-organizer. "We really want this to be a regional organization. We want people from both sides of the river to come together and do community presentations."

Upcoming events include:

The event is BYOB- Bring your own bowl.
