Guiding Light Stars Shine On Cincinnati

Caitlin Van-Zandt and John Driscoll from the "Guiding Light" -- a Procter & Gamble production airing on CBS for 70 years -- will be here Friday to promote volunteerism and meet fans on Fountain Square at noon.

Van-Zandt, who plays Ashlee Wolfe, and Driscoll, who plays Henry "Coop" Bradshaw," will start their day Friday planting trees in Laurel Park in the West End 8-11 a.m. They'll be joined by Mayor Mark Mallory, P&G employees and Cincinnati Parks Foundation trustees. The TV stars are coming here as part of the show's "Find Your Light" program, in which cast members volunteer at events across the country.

At noon, the "Guiding Light" duo will be at the P&G/ Volunteer Fair on Fountain Square. At the fair, which starts at 10 a.m., information will be distributed by many local groups: March of Dimes, Dress for Success, the Reds Community Fund, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, Give Back Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, YMCA, United Way and others.

"Guiding Light" is the longest-runnig show in broadcasting history. It began on radio in 1937, and moved to TV in 1952 (3 p.m. weekdays on Ch 12 and 7).

That was a fantastic event on Fountain Square. The Downtown area, the people of Cincinnati, and the weather really put Cincinnati is a wonderful light in front of the millions that the Guiding Light can and will touch - kudos to all involved from the Tourism Network to P&G, I will say it again; FANTASTIC.
