"At Johnson Investment Counsel, we wholeheartedly believe that involvement in our community is vital to our success. We were proud to co-sponsor the winter 2016 production of Native Gardens. It was gratifying to assist the Playhouse in bringing magnificent original work to the stage in Cincinnati. As a production sponsor, we were also able to provide entertainment opportunities to our employees.

Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park is an integral part of what makes Cincinnati a great place to live. We look forward to supporting its efforts for many years to come."
