At The Columbus Photo Booth Company, we believe in helping others and giving back to our community.
At the top of our list is donating a portion of all revenue to The Daniel J. Zwayer Brain Cancer Research Fund, also known as Dan’s Fund. Dan’s Fund is chartered to fund important and cutting edge cancer research at The Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and specifically supports the brain tumor research teams under the direction and guidance of two outstanding and respected doctors: Dr. Chiocca and Dr. Chakravarti. Through their efforts and our dollars, we hope to someday find a cure for cancerous brain tumors.

Daniel J. Zwayer was a highly successful, well-rounded man who enjoyed his many roles in life:  loving husband, nurturing father, happy grandparent, reliable brother and son, loyal sports fanatic, respected businessman, and to most everyone who enjoyed his company, a trusted friend.  Dan's life came to an end on November 8, 2006, after a very stubborn and courageous four-year-battle against Glioblastoma Multiforme, the most deadly among many categories of brain tumors.

He was unlike many of us in that he never thought that cancer could happen to him.  Many of his family and friends were deeply inspired by both his courage and tenacity throughout the unforeseen challenges of his disease.  He endured four brain surgeries and was a participant in multiple clinical trials  – trials that Dan himself strongly believed would help others if they didn't benefit him in the short term.

Dan's commitment to beat cancer was truly an inspiration to all who knew him. He had such a positive impact on the lives of his family and friends in his 55 years of life, that his legacy lives on in the name of charity  –  charity to commit funds specifically to battle brain tumors, through a wonderful endowment in conjunction with Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Thus far, we have raised well over $100,000 in benefit of Dan’s Fund and we continue to give back to many non-profit organizations alike.

At The Columbus Photo Booth Company, we believe that giving back to our community is the only real way to create smiling hearts. If you or someone you know has a non-profit organization that you’d like to have The Columbus Photo Booth at please reach out to us and we will try our best to donate what we can in the constant effort to give back. We serve non-profit events and organizations in the following areas: Columbus, Ohio | Dayton, Ohio | Cincinnati, Ohio | Indianapolis, Indiana | Cleveland, Ohio
