What would you do if your child or someone you care for were diagnosed with cancer?

Lavender Ribbons, Inc. is a non-profit organization created "because cancer hurts mind, body and soul. "


We are an all volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds for cancer support services in Central Ohio. Since its inception in 2003, we have raised over $150,000 for area cancer support services.


We are always looking for new ideas for projects and fundraising suggestions. If you know of a project that needs funding contact us with the idea and the projected budget. Our volunteer board will make a decision based on available funds.


Volunteer positions are open for enthusiastic people willing to put in a few hours to help someone in need.

This year's proceeds will again maintain the Cancer Coping Kits Program we started in 2006 for newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patients at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Each kit is customized for a specific age range and costs an average of $35 per kit, there are over 200 new patients every year that receive them. Please help us help them.


The wine tasting will feature premium wines, microbrews and an array of elegant appetizers. Silent and live auctions will high light the evening making this an event you won't want to miss.


You can help by:

We are anticipating a crowd exceeding 150 people including business and community leaders, medical specialists, wine enthusiasts and volunteers. This is an excellent way for you and your business to show support for children and adults coping with cancer in our community.
