The annual Buckeye Boy's Cruisin' for a Cure event aboard the Valley Gem Sternwheeler is scheduled for 6-9 p.m. Saturday, July 29. This year's "Tropical Island Evening" will feature Ohio State University's 1974 Rose Bowl MVP Cornelius Green, along with former OSU athletes Jimmie Bell, Jamal Luke, Nate Oliver and Kenny Coleman. The cost is $75 per person and there will be food, music and a live auction. The event is a fundraiser for Buckeye Bob's Chris Custer Foundation, which raises money for childhood cancer. The foundation was formed after Robert Kyer's wife's son, Chris Custer, was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma and underwent months of treatments at Nationwide Children's Hospital and The James Cancer Center in Columbus. The foundation was formed to help local families who have a child battling cancer; to provide fun supplies for children at the hospital; and to help with research. For more information about the foundation, contact the Marietta Community Foundation at 740-373-3286.
