Dennis Cuneo has been humbled by the announcement that he has been named a United Way of Greater Cincinnati ‘Hero’.
Dennis’ work in the community of Greater Cincinnati began in 2000, when he chaired his second United Way campaign. Following this rewarding experience, he served on the Board of Directors until 2004. During this time, he was on the Board of Directors for the Cincinnati Fine Arts Fund (2001-2003). He also sat on the Board of the Greater Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, served on the executive committee of the Commercial Club of Cincinnati, and was a member of the Cincinnati Business Committee. In 2003, he served as the appointed Chair of the Cincinnati Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. In 2004, he joined a task force to advise on replacing a major arterial bridge between Ohio and Kentucky.
While Dennis was the senior vice president at Toyota during that time, he had a strong focus on supporting community health and education. He helped launch Toyota literacy centers in Kentucky and Detroit and supported K-12 education as a member of the Cincinnati Business Committee. He also chaired the first ever Northern Kentucky Walk to Cure Diabetes.
The United Way’s Centennial Dinner, the Gathering of Heroes, will be held at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio on Aril 21st to commemorate 100 years of civic engagement and the leaders who exemplified the spirit of civic engagement.
