The 20th annual Up on the Roof was held Saturday, October 12, 2013, on the beautiful grounds of Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS).
This highly anticipated evening welcomed a sold-out crowd of nearly 900 guests joining together to raise significant funds in support of the The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.
Guests ventured up to the roof of the CAS parking garage for the cocktail hour, which boasted fantastic views of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute in the distance. Three musicians from the Chicago-based Ken Arlen Orchestra joined guests on the roof to kick off this vibrant and celebratory evening. Guests were then escorted across the lawn to the main tent for the remainder of the evening.
Steven Gabbe, MD, Michael Caligiuri, MD, and David Schuller, MD, offered motivating words on the future of medicine and the impact the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute will have on patients and their families. Robert Massie, president, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), and president, The James Operating Board, was the 2013 Up on the Roof Honorary Chair. Up on the Roof founder, Janis Bloch, remarked on the twenty year history of this great event, which supports Ohio State’s cancer program.
As Up on the Roof came to a close, guests departed having enjoyed a fantastic night out with the acknowledgment that they have made an impact in the fight for a cancer-free world.
