Ohio Cancer Research to roast Main Street Bank CEO for charity

ST. CLAIRSVILLE — Ohio Cancer Research will be holding its 28th annual Grand Illusions Saute — a yearly fundraising event to raise money for the charitable organization.

The event will be held at Undo’s West at 6 p.m. May 22. President and CEO of Main Street Bank Richard Lucas is slated to be the guest of honor. The fundraiser aims to honor and roast Lucas and Main Street Bank. The funds raised at this event will go toward basic cancer research, public information and awareness. Individual tickets range from $125 and $200 and tables range from $1,250-$50,000. Sponsors for the fundraiser are Encovs Insurance, Kimball Midwest, and Medical Mutual.

Last year’s guests of honor were founders of Joe’s Tires LLC, Roy and Martha Hershberger. Other past guests of honor included St. Clairsville attorney Michael Shaheen and Richard L. Riesbeck, president and CEO of Riesbeck Food Markets LLC.

“For 27 years, Ohio Cancer Research is proud to have honored and sizzled (OK, just singed, but never fully roasted), the most prominent and successful business and civic leaders in the Ohio Valley to raise funds for basic cancer research, public information, and awareness,” the OCR states in a press release. “Formed in 1982, Ohio Cancer Research is dedicated to finding a cure and improving the quality of life for those going through treatment. Talented researchers have been or are being funded at many of Ohio’s world-class institutions.”
