Grand Illusions Sauté – Ohio Valley 2021

Grand Illusions Sauté – Ohio Valley 2021

In more than 30 years of Ohio Cancer Research events around the State of Ohio, none have been more consistently successful in raising important seed funding for new ideas in cancer research than the 26 years of the Ohio Valley Grand Illusions Sauté.

Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, OCR is currently funding four new, groundbreaking ideas in cancer research and are asking for your help in doing so.

While we are planning the next live Grand Illusions Sauté at Undo’s in St. Clairsville for Spring of 2022, we are also busy working on a commemorative video history of the event for your enjoyment. You will be notified when it is available to view on the OCR website.

In lieu of the live event this year, we are asking you to help us reach our collective goal of funding one entire, two-year research project for $60,000.

Together, I am confident that we can get there so please consider help putting us “over the top” as we continue our fight to save, improve and extend lives in the battle against cancer!
