Fourth Annual ‘Research Innovations’ Event Draws 500 Patrons

The fourth annual “Research Innovations for an Epilepsy Cure” drew some 500 guests to the glittering Mercedes-Benz of Cincinnati on Oct. 17. The indoor showroom, emptied of vehicles for the occasion, featured a dual silent auction, with gifts on the first floor and to-die-for wines above – including a 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild that sold for $970. The event benefits research at the Epilepsy Center at the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute.

Presenting sponsor was the Pamela and Charles L. Shor Foundation for Epilepsy Research. Diamond sponsors were Fifth Third Bank, Romiley and Thayer Jack, J.P. Morgan and the Shanahan Family. Platinum sponsor was the Schiff Family Foundation. Special guest was Hollywood screenwriter and vintner Robert Kamen. The organizing committee comprised Sally Lutz, Anne Shanahan, Pamela and Charles Shor, Michael Privitera, M.D., Susan Muth, Jameson Muth, Mendy Shaw, Jill Johnston and Jon Zipperstein.
