Ride Richwood Railroad and help the NKY Children’s Advocacy Ctr.

-A A +A

On Sept. 22, from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m., families can enjoy a ride on the Richwood Tahoe Railroad while helping abused children. The half-scale steam locomotive will be open from 9:00 to 12:30 for the third annual event. In addition to the train ride, there will be food and child-centered games to enjoy, along with the magic of Chuck Arkin. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $5 for children and $25 for families (2 adults, 2 children), and can be purchased in advance or at the event.

The train ride winds through the scenic hilltop site overlooking Northern Kentucky and features railroad signals, crossings, a water tower and replica of an old Western town. The Richwood Tahoe Railroad is located on the grounds of the Columbia-Sussex Corp. 740 Centre View Boulevard, off Thomas More Parkway, in Crestview Hills, Ky.

Skyline Chili cheese coneys, cold drinks, old-fashioned popcorn and other treats will be available for purchase. All of the day’s proceeds will benefit the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center.

The Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center is a nonprofit organization that provides services to children that have been sexually abused, severely physically abused and children who have witnessed violent crimes. In addition, the NKCAC provides supportive services for non-offending parents, caregivers, siblings, family members and professionals.

Our multidisciplinary team includes social workers, law enforcement, prosecutors, therapists, advocates and health care providers. Our child-focused, welcoming environment ensures that children are protected and that children and the non-offending adults who care for them can begin to heal.

As the designated regional children’s advocacy center, we serve Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Gallatin, Grant, Kenton, Owen and Pendleton counties. More information is available on our website, www.nkycac.org.
