Stuff The Subaru for My Best Friend's Bowl
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
My Best Friend's Bowl Pet Food Bank has been helping families struggling to feed their pets in Lakewood and beyond since 2011. Every year on Super Bowl Sunday we ask the community to help us continue keeping the bowls full by donating dry dog and cat food and cat litter. You can also just drop of a cash donation with which we are able to purchase food from an Ohio manufacturer at a reduced price in bulk.

In past years we have help the drive at the High School, but this year we have changed the event venue to the Lake Erie Building where we store our food. You just drive in, we empty your vehicle, give you a tax receipt and you are on your way to enjoy the Super Bowl festivities.

My Best Friend's Bowl is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) non profit charity. Your donation is tax deductible and you will receive your tax receipt at the event. Please visit our facebook page for more detail. Help us help others keep their pets at home where they belong and to "Keep the bowls full."

Dr. Saul Hertz: Pioneer of Nuclear Medicine
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
In the 1930s and 40s, Dr. Saul Hertz revolutionized cancer treatment with his breakthrough research establishing the use of radioactive iodine (RAI) as the cornerstone of nuclear medicine. Today, RAI is the gold standard of targeted cancer therapy. The son of Jewish immigrants to Cleveland, Hertz graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1929 and performed his internship and residency at Cleveland’s Mount Sinai Hospital. As a Jew, Hertz faced many professional challenges that resulted in his contributions being falsely recorded, trivialized, or omitted from medical history. More than 80 years after his research began, his story, achievements, and legacy are now coming to light. Join Barbara Hertz, his daughter, for an illustrated talk on The Hertz family’s origins in Poland, the social biases that impeded Dr. Hertz’s due recognition, and how his medical legacy profoundly impacts current practices.
