The fifth annual Rusty Ball, hosted by the Rusty Griswolds, will be held Nov. 10, 2012.
The group awarded its first pilot grant in 2012 to Vladimir Bogdanov, PhD, a pancreatic cancer researcher affiliated with the UC Cancer Institute and UC College of Medicine.
Last year this event helped 119 local charities. GIVEHOPE was a beneficiary in 2011 and has been selected again for 2012.
The nonprofit will receive a portion of ticket proceeds and certain auction items. GIVEHOPE will be auctioning two autographed guitars—one signed by the Doobie Brothers, the other by the band Chicago—two trips to Chicago and a two-flight glider package from the Caesar Creek Soaring Club.
