The Columbus Mac & Cheese Festival

The Columbus Mac & Cheese Festival, benefiting the Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer program at the OSUCCC – James, is turning 5 this year! 

Please plan to join us in person:

  • Date: Friday, October 7, 2022
  • Time: 4:00 - 8:00 p.m.
  • Location: The Yard at Easton Town Center
    • The Yard is Easton's newest district, located north of Macy's and east of Nordstrom, close to the Worth Ave. Parking Garage

The James, with support from Teen Cancer America, is partnering with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to create a joint Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Program. This collaboration will ensure every person in Ohio between the ages of 15-39 diagnosed with cancer has the most up to date treatment for their disease, the opportunity to participate in cutting edge research for their diagnosis and have access to comprehensive AYA-specific support programs and services.

In the past four years we have raised over $300,000 to help make a difference in the lives of adolescents and young adults who are battling cancer. The need for cancer research still exists, and we invite you to continue your support of the Columbus Mac and Cheese Festival if you are able. Please note that any donations made after Thursday, September 1st, will not be acknowledged on any printed sponsor materials.

Your support of events like the Mac & Cheese Festival truly make an impact. Investing in the cancer experts at the OSUCCC – James fuels groundbreaking discoveries that will lead to our ultimate goal of a cancer-free world. Please join the NextGen James Ambassadors by making a gift. On behalf of the world-class doctors, researchers, friends and caregivers at the OSUCCC – James, we greatly appreciate any support you are able to provide. We thank you for your consideration in joining us in this important cause. 

If you have any event specific questions, please reach out to Zoe Van Dyke at fundraising.events@osumc.edu or call (614) 247-9418.

If you are unable to attend the event but would like to make a gift, please do so here.
