The Columbus Mac & Cheese Festival is returning for its sixth year to benefit the Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer program at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).
Please plan to join us in person:
- Date: Friday, October 6, 2023
- Time: 4:00 - 7:30 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
Cancer has become the No. 1 disease in young adults (ages 15-39), with approximately 89,000 cases diagnosed every year in the United States. AYA cancer patients and survivors face a unique array of challenges. Major life milestones that commonly occur at this age, like finishing college, starting a career or family planning, can feel impossible when cancer enters the mix.
To date, the Mac & Cheese Festival has raised over $350,000. These funds have supported targeted research studies and enhanced the spaces for AYA patients at the OSUCCC – James with artwork and entertainment options that help them feel more at ease. The need for cancer research still exists, and we invite you to continue your support of the Columbus Mac and Cheese Festival. Please note that any donations made after Friday, 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.
