Ohio 529 Celebrates 2022 Cincinnati Reds College Savings Grand Slam Winners

The Cincinnati Reds and Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, teamed up again in 2022 to help Reds fans hit it out of Great American Ball Park for their higher education goals.

One lucky Reds fan received a grand prize of a $10,000 college savings award to load the bases for their Ohio Direct 529 account. The winner, Timothy Dillow, applied the college savings award to his granddaughter’s Ohio 529 account.

Timothy, his wife, Mary; and their son, Brandon; daughter-in-law, Andress, and granddaughter, Joanna; and family friends Hanna Irwin and Nick Sentelle joined Ohio’s 529 Plan and the Reds for the award presentation for the Saturday, Sept. 4 Colorado Rockies. While the game was postponed, the award presentation didn’t miss a beat. The second-place winner, Amanda Moss, and third-place winner, Patrick Burke, also won tickets to this game. Here's a video of the check presentation.
