(Cleveland) - Cleveland Clinic celebrated its 100th birthday by receiving a very generous gift. Cincinnati businessman Charles Shor donated $15.5 million to Cleveland Clinic, to support its future Neurological Institute building, and epilepsy research.
The "Charles Shor Epilepsy Center" will be created with $10 million of Shor's gift, with the remaining $5.5 million supporting an epilepsy study that will look into the link between stress and seizures.
Shor is the head of his family's Duro Bag Manufacturing, the world's largest paper bag maker. He was diagnosed with epilepsy in his 20s.
Cleveland Clinic made the announcement during its Founders Day event, kicking off Cleveland Clinic's Centennial Celebration..
