More than 170 donors and friends gathered at Smith & Wollensky Restaurant in Easton Town Center on May 12 for the 17th annual Celebration for Life dinner to benefit The James Fund for Life, an annual fund at Ohio State that is chaired by Abigail and Les Wexner and raises money to buy leading-edge technology for studying and treating cancer.

This year’s event generated $1,232,986, bringing the total dollars raised for The James Fund for Life to $18.9 million since the fund was established in 2002. Funds from this year’s event will support the purchases of a new prone biopsy table, an automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) system and two mammography units for new satellite locations.

OSUCCC Director Raphael Pollock, MD, PhD, and James Interim CEO William Farrar, MD, extended their deep gratitude to the Easton Community Foundation and to Smith & Wollensky for their generous support over the years.
