Sleepy Bee Café in Oakley serves breakfast and lunch to a swarm of patrons seven days a week. Where does the restaurant get the energy? It’s girl power. On Sunday, indefatigable executive chef Frances Kroner will leave the lights on late for a dinner to support the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati and its programs for enriching women’s lives. Kroner is joining other female chefs including Suzanne Church (Metropole), Julie Francis (Nectar), Shalini Latour (Chocolats Latour) and Renee Schuler (eat well) to create a seven-course meal.
Sculptural centerpieces to be auctioned during the dinner come from women artists including Chelsea Borgman, Pam Kravetz and Sara Pearce.
