OACA Past President Kevin Clark and his wife, Jane, are opening a home for those undergoing cancer treatments in Columbus hospitals. This special social event will be held at their beautiful home, called Hope Hollow, and will feature a casual dinner, drinks and a silent auction. The evening will also include musical entertainment and special Ambassadors from the Columbus area.

Hope Hollow is ever so grateful for the past and current support of the members of the Columbus Landscape Association. Through their support they have fulfilled the landscape design intent to compliment the historical spirit of the site and enhance the views from every window of the home. Every effort has been made to design a landscape for Hope Hollow that is warm, inviting and relaxed.  After spending a day navigating the hospital environment, the hope is, when visitors arrive, they will feel they have come home.

We stepped back in history to learn about the summer/weekend home for the Meeks family of Bryden Road who made their wealth in the saddle and harness business. They enjoyed their summer home “in the country” north of town. By the 1930’s, the son was managing the property and hired noted Columbus architect Thomas J. Tully to build a permanent home in the style of a Pennsylvania farmhouse. Eventually the property would be incorporated into Columbus and Meek Road was renamed Olentangy River Road. The evening consisted of a cocktail party, live music, a lecture about the home, and a live auction.


“Though I have yet to meet Kevin face to face, I was blessed to have him become the caring person to help me find a place to stay while my husband Mike, a 6-time cancer survivor, was going to be at The James for his 2nd bone marrow transplant. Kevin was so kind and caring. He eased my worries with arrangements for housing while my husband was a patient. With us living just short of 2 hours from Columbus, I was in need of someplace close to stay. His kindness to others is so genuine and pure. I can’t express how fortunate I was to have come into contact with Kevin. Before I leave Columbus to go home, I will make it my goal to meet Kevin and Jane. God bless.”
