28th Annual Tour
Sunday, September 14, 2015

Now in its 28th year of supporting cancer services programs at OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital, Kitchen Kapers continues its mission to improve the lives of those living with cancer. This year, the group of volunteers raised funds for the Artist in Residence program by showcasing newly-remodeled homes in the Upper Arlington community.

Recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts as a “Best Practice,” the Artist in Residence program brings artistry to the bedside of cancer patients to enhance healing and improve quality of life.

Special thanks to the 2015 Tour Sponsor Erie Insurance and the many restaurant and floral partners, the home sponsors, our media partners, committee members and advertisers.
