(January 6, 2020) For the past 14 years, OCRA has hosted Turn Up the Heat: Celebrating Female Superstars, a fabulous foodie fest packed full of tantalizing treats and eats from the most exciting female chefs, mixologists and restaurateurs, all for a good cause. And it is with profound gratitude for the opportunity to host this incredible event, that we’ve decided it is time for us to reimagine our fundraising efforts in the DC and Boston areas.
Since Turn Up the Heat first sizzled onto the scene, the event has raised over $2.6 million to help end ovarian cancer through funding life-saving ovarian cancer research, advocacy, and programs that support survivors and their families.
We are very proud of that accomplishment and grateful that we had the opportunity to work with the best female chefs, mixologists and restaurateurs in DC and Boston. It was because of their talent and your generous support that we were able to do so much good. Thank you!
