Mechanical Optimizers was a proud sponsor of this year’s Retrofittings in support of our neighbor St. Vincent De Paul. As SVDP’s signature fundraising event, RetroFittings is instrumental in raising crucial funds in support of SVDP’s local programs.

On Thursday, October 19th at Music Hall, we were among 450 guests on hand to watch the runway show featuring fashion designs created by the University of Cincinnati’s DAAP program. Each designer had the challenge of transforming their $25 SVDP Thrift Stores purchase to create a high fashion masterpiece. As St. Vincent’s CEO Brad McMonigle shared, it is a similar transformation of hope and beauty that occurs at St. Vincent everyday as they help our neighbors in need stay fed, housed and healthy.
