At its Dinner of Champions, the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society honored Robert Castellini, chairman of Castellini Co., for his outstanding leadership and service to the community, and Beth Rauh for her example in facing the day-to-day challenges of living with MS.
This year's event, at the Cincinnati Netherland Hilton, downtown, featured a cocktail reception and dinner. Some 300 helped to raise more than $140,000 for MS.
The Dinner of Champions is the premiere event of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Howard Cosell and Frank Gifford founded the dinner in 1972. Today, the fund-raiser occurs in more than 70 of the nation's largest communities. Local sponsors were Time Warner Cable and Western & Southern Financial Group.
