Six Courses for a Cure:
Six Courses for a Cure is the result of the creative genius of Roger Thomas, Executive Chef at the Sheraton Suites, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio and Pete Olsen, a partner in Purple Feet Distributing, located in Macedonia, Ohio.
After meeting Gerry and Marti Cowden at a family celebration and hearing the story of their daughter Meredith and her courageous battle against leukemia, Roger and Pete suggested the idea of a wine dinner to benefit the Meredith A. Cowden Foundation.
Both Pete and Roger have hosted and participated in many wine dinners to raise funding for charities and worthwhile causes in northeast Ohio, specifically the Akron area where they are located and the Cowden’s live.
Six Courses for a Cure with Roger Thomas at the helm as the coordinating chef will be the second scheduled fundraiser of the year for the Cowden Foundation. This exciting event will be held in the beautiful 300 seat capacity ballroom at The Sheraton Suites Akron/Cuyahoga Falls on Friday, August 9th, 2013.
