Mark Puskarich
We then called Mark Puskarich, our cruise musical director, CEO and founder of "A Christmas to Cure Cancer," who has a lot of experience with this kind of project. Without Mark, none of this would be possible. His put in many hours in the recording studio encouraging our stars in their singing and playing. Then he spent endless hours editing the CD to get it ready for you in time for the cruise.
We had a meeting in late October that Chris and Stefanie attended at which Mark and I jokingly asked Chris and Stefanie to sing a duet.
When Lisa and Mark approached Chris and I about singing on the CD, we laughed.
Lisa and Mark, thank you for your vision and for your commitment to helping us find a cure for cancer.

Mark Puskarich Mark Puskarich, a 1986 graduate of Otterbein College and Columbus resident, has been awarded the Community Service Award by the Otterbein College Alumni Association. He will be honored at a luncheon on June 9, 2007.
After graduating from Otterbein, Puskarich began his 21-year career at Worthington Industries, where he is currently the Manager of IT Shared Services.
Outside of work, Puskarich found a special way to support cancer research through music. In 1997, Puskarich and three of his former high school friends reunited their band, along with the wife of one, to record a Christmas music CD. Their pursuit was halted when one of band members was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer. Four years later, he overcame the cancer and is currently in remission. The group decided to use their love of music as a way to give back, celebrate their bandmates survival and help raise money for cancer research and treatment.
Puskarich is the president and founder of A Christmas to Cure Cancer, Inc., a non-profit entity to raise money for cancer research and donate the net proceeds to organizations engaged in cancer research. In 2002, the group released their first Christmas CD and held their first benefit concert. Five years later, Mark and his friends have raised a total of $440,000 through their "A Christmas to Cure Cancer" benefit concerts and their Christmas CD releases. Locally, their contributions have benefited cancer research efforts through the American Cancer Society, James Cancer Hospital, the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research and the Ohio Cancer Research Associates. In 2006, Mark was honored as one of ten Jefferson Award recipients for his service to the community.
Mark said, "The most meaningful memories I have of Otterbein center around the people and the relationships I developed there.
Mark Puskarich is a finalist for the Jefferson Award for Public Service in Central Ohio.

When Mark Puskarich '86 first proposed that he and his friends record a Christmas CD, it began as a fun project to share with their friends and family. Four years later, the group's efforts have raised nearly $35,000 for The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Click to view original article.
Mark came to Otterbein from his hometown of Cadiz, Ohio. He was very active on campus, graduating with a double major in business administration and computer science. He was president of Zeta Phie during his senior year, and remaing their advisor until 1997. As a student, he also was a member of the Torch & Key and letter in track in 1985.
After graduating, he began working for Worthington Industries, where he is now application management director in the Information Systems depertment.
Before entering Otterbein, Mark was in a band during his teenage years in the 1980s.
Mark presented to Cody at a Christmas party the idea to proceed with making the CD, but using it to raise funds for the cancer research.
Mark said that the childhood friends have made future plans for the fundraising efforts.
Mark asks that checks should be made out to The James, and may qualify as a tax deductable donation.
