Grand Illusions Sauté – Toledo 2022
For 12 years, Ohio Cancer Research is proud to have honored and sizzled (ok, perhaps just singed, but never fully roasted), the most prominent and successful business and civic leaders in the Toledo area to raise funds for basic cancer research, public information and awareness.
This year is no exception as we honor Wade Kapszukiewicz, Mayor, City of Toledo on
Thursday, September 29 at 6 p.m. at the Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel.
Additionally, the 2022 Discover Award for Research will be presented to The University of Toledo’s Lirim Shemshedini, PhD. Dr. Shemshedini received a $50,000 seed money grant from OCR in 2001 that generated nearly $2 million from other sources based on his success.
OCR has provided over $1.2 million in seed money to Toledo area researchers at the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University that has generated more than $87 million from other sources to continue work based on initial success.
We look forward to your presence and encourage those of you who are unable to attend to donate to this very important cause!
