The black-tie Cincinnatians of the Year Gala draws more than 850 community and business leaders each year. Last year’s event raised a record of nearly $4 million. 

David Cramer, with Molly and other family members, has participated JDRF bike-a-thons and has served on the JDRF Southwest Ohio board. Laura Cramer is a member and has chaired the JDRF Cincinnatian of the Year Gala three times. 

Vester is an integral part of the chapter’s volunteer team. She is overall gala co-chair and she is also a long-term coach of the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes program. She will join the JDRF Southwest Ohio board of directors July 1. 

Susan Mustian and Carla Palmore are joining Vester as overall co-chairs of the event. 

Tickets are $250.
