Mike Valentine with others

Valentine Research, the manufacturer of the Valentine One radar locator, has been a client of Upright Communications since 2000. In our years of partnership, we have performed search engine optimization, pay per click marketing, and website development services. It was such a joy to see a recent Cincinnati Enquirer article spotlighting an extremely generous donation that Valentine Research CEO, Mike Valentine and his wife Margaret have made to the Cincinnati Ballet. You make us proud!

Just a few weeks ago, Mike and Margaret contributed $10 million towards Cincinnati Ballet’s much-needed move to a bigger facility in Walnut Hills. Having been a resident of Cincinnati for quite a number of years now, the Valentines want to ensure that Cincinnati grows and flourishes. The best way they can do this is by investing in programs and businesses right here in Cincinnati. Coupled with Cincinnati Ballet’s recent growth and Margaret’s love for ballet, this donation just made sense. The CEO and president of Cincinnati Ballet, Scott Altman, went as far as to say that “[the new facility] will exponentially advance our mission to enrich, expand, and excel in the art of dance…” What great words about the future of Cincinnati Ballet!

The new ballet center will be named the Cincinnati Ballet Margaret and Michael Valentine Center for Dance. The move is estimated to cost about $30 million dollars so the contribution that the Valentines made is quite substantial. In fact, their contribution has been the largest gift Cincinnati Ballet has received to date. It has been one of the final pushes that the center needed in order to move.

Mike and Margaret, everyone at Upright and the City of Cincinnati thanks you for your generosity!
