Mac and Cheese Festival

Save the Date!

Friday, October 6   |   Easton Town Center

It's time to get cheesy! Plan to join us on Friday, Oct. 6 from 4-8 p.m. for the 2017 Columbus Mac & Cheese Festival.

Money raised from the event will go directly to support the adolescent and young adult cancer program at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James), an area that desperately needs our help: More than 70,000 young people from the ages of 15 to 29 are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. These types of cancers are diagnosed six times more often than childhood cancers, and we need to find ways to stop them.

Thank you Event Sponsors
