Bless Our Children

Roger Bacon High School has partnered with Bless Our Children, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, to help our families earn money to help reduce the cost of a students' education.

Money is earned by family and friends working concession stands at various sporting and entertainment venues in Cincinnati. These funds are then sent to Roger Bacon and will be credited to the student's account. The venues include Great American Ball Park, Paul Brown Stadium, US Bank Arena, and The Greater Cincinnati Visitors and Convention Center.

Any family interested in participating in the Bless Our Children Program should email bocmembership1/at/gmail.com.

FAQ:

How are funds allocated?

BOC is paid per event, for each concession and portable manned by the group. The money is then allocated to Roger Bacon High School along with a statement showing who worked the events and how much each member has earned. The funds will then be credited to your students account. There is a minimum amount that each member is paid per event. If more than the minimum is made, a commission is paid and each member will receive a share of the commission earned for that event.

  • The USB event minimum is $35.00. The average earned is $40.00
  • The GABP minimum is $65.00, the average $75.00 - $80.00
  • The PBS minimum is $50.00
  • Any tips earned by the stand will be pooled and divided by the total number of people who have worked that event

Are there any out of pocket expenses?

No. A $25.00 membership fee is assessed per person for your initial year which covers your required hats and administrative costs (insurance, Ohio Attorney General Fees and general clerical costs). Each subsequent year the membership fee is $10.00 per person.

All fees will be deducted from your first earnings – there is no out of pocket expense for these fees.

Who can work for BOC on my student's behalf?

Anyone can be a “Sponsor”. A sponsor is a person or people who will be working on behalf of your student. You may have as many sponsors as you like (parents, aunts, uncles, older siblings, friends etc). All Sponsors must attend required Training as each venue stipulates. Each venue does have a minimum age requirement. They are as follows:

  • USB / PBS – minimum age is 18
  • GABP – minimum age is 16
  • DECC – minimum age depends on the area and type of work
