Ronald C. Renaud Jr., president and CEO of Cambridge-based Idenix Pharmaceuticals, will be recognized Sept. 20 at the foundation's annual "Flavors of Boston" charity event for his contribution and support of the organization, according to foundation representatives.

Renaud, who also serves on the foundation's board, has personally run the 7-mile New Balance Falmouth Road Race to raise funds for the organization. He also leads a team from his company for the Boston-area Liver Life Walk, and Idenix "continuously supports ALF tremendously," representatives said.

Proceeds from the sold-out culinary event -- which cost $250 per ticket -- will help fund the research, education and advocacy efforts of the American Liver Foundation, officials said.
