Up on the Roof is an annual black tie gala fundraising event, founded by Janis Bloch, in support of the OSUCCC – James’ world-class leadership in fighting cancer.
Up on the Roof is traditionally held on the beautiful grounds of Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), and each year more than 900 guests venture up to the roof of the CAS parking garage, which boasts fantastic views of the new OSUCCC – James campus in the distance, for the cocktail hour.
While orchestral musicians provide accompaniment, guests are then escorted across the lawn to the main tent to enjoy gourmet food, libations and remarks from leaders on the front lines of cancer research and treatment.
As the evening comes to a close, guests depart, having enjoyed a fantastic night out with the acknowledgment that they have made an impact in the fight for a cancer-free world.
