The Cincinnati Ben-Gals have played a major role in the Bengals organization year after year since 1968. On the field, these ladies perform in front of more than 64,000 fans at Paul Brown Stadium.

The Ben-Gals have appeared at charity functions, conventions, grand openings, trade shows, and other charitable and civic causes each year. These ladies are young professionals who not only are involved in their own careers, but they are also involved in events throughout the community.

The Ben-Gals can add excitement to any occasion. Whether it be signing autographs, mingling with guests or performing their many dance routines, they are sure to add a special element to any event. If you are interested booking a cheerleader for your event please contact Charlotte Simons Char1cheer@yahoo.com.
