About Us

ALH Publications and metroMAGAZINE

Nearly 30 years ago, Publisher Andrea L. Hoig had a vision for serving Omaha's philanthropic community and the individuals, organizations and businesses that make Omaha the unique and special place it is.

SpiritofOmaha.com is another step towards fulfilling her overall vision, having added a powerful resource to the area’s original, trendsetting lifestyle, cultural and philanthropic magazine, metroMAGAZINE. This  website adds considerable muscle to a highly regarded stable of print and web media products created through Ms. Hoig's vision and leadership. The award winning area bi-monthly, metroMAGAZINE, shares well earned honors with the award winning annual publication, The Giving Guide & Event Book, and 101 Things to Love about the metro™.

The mission of ALH Publications is to recognize the ongoing efforts of Omaha-area businesses, organizations and individuals to better the community through their support of charitable and civic causes. alh Publications also encourages people’s desire to give something back to the community through volunteerism and philanthropy.

For nearly 30 years, metroMAGAZINE has been the magazine readers rely on for dynamic, award-winning coverage of charity events, the local fashion scene, inspiring human interest features and profiles, informative columns, educational awareness sections and coverage of regional culture and fine arts.

In the past three decades, metroMAGAZINE and ALH Publications have become renowned for introducing an upscale format and placing a premium on outstanding journalism, design and photography. metroMAGAZINE is also recognized as one of the metro area’s leading authorities on restaurants, arts and entertainment and trends in fashion and décor, as featured annually in 101 Things to Love about the metro.

Since metroMAGAZINE first published in 1990, it has paved the way for coverage and promotion of Omaha’s philanthropic community. As the magazine begins celebrating its 30th anniversary in late 2020, it also celebrates being widely regarded as the definitive local market leader and the standard against which all others are measured.

With the additional resources of SpiritofOmaha.com, ALH Publications is pleased to provide leaders and supporters in Omaha's charitable and cultural community a package of very powerful and flexible tools for connecting and communicating on a level never before possible, and we are genuinely excited about the opportunity to help "Make a Difference" in powerful new ways. We look forward with great anticipation, to introducing the public and local businesses to the dynamic array of features this new website offers our community. Omaha is a city unlike any in the country, and her many local charitable organizations and agencies, and progressive local business owners deserve a site like non other in the country… and now such a site exists.
