Ohio Cancer Research Associates
“Grand Illusions Sauté”



        The “Grand Illusions” events for Ohio Cancer Research Associates serve as fund- and awareness-raisers that engage individuals and corporations in the pursuit of seed money for studies right here in the Buckeye State. For example, a breakthrough was announced not long ago in the discovery of a colon-cancer producing gene; the primary researcher was backed.
    This “sauté” began with Bill Boggess, OCRA Development Director telling the 300 guests that more than $16 million has been spent on cancer detection and prevention awareness activities, as well as research projects. This evening’s $115,000 will be given to investigators in hospitals and universities throughout Ohio, remarked Dennis Zack, founder of Ohio Cancer Research Associates, who praised the many “great CEOs and corporate, civic and academic leaders” who have allowed OCRA to honor them.
    Ronald Leder, President/CEO of Middough, graciously allowed himself to be to verbally poked and prodded by his co-workers, daughter and niece, and clearly came through as a hard-working, admired individual…who, according to the four “sauté chefs,” is known for long meetings, a passion for checklists and formal business attire, right down to his supposed “ironed” shoelaces. All in good fun to support a very worthy cause. STORY BY LINDA McMULLEN/PHOTOGRAPHS BY JEFF FARR
