Cancer Support Community’s Virtual Gala a World Class Succes


Cancer Support Community Pasadena held its second virtual gala, “Around the World,” on May 15 and raised nearly $250,000 to support the programs the organization provides to families facing cancer.  

“Our globe-trotting virtual gala was everything we hoped it would be,” said Patricia Ostiller, CSCP’s executive director. “It was an entertaining event for viewers who visited beautiful destinations, education about our free resources for anyone impacted by cancer, and generous funds raised to support our operations. Thank you to everyone who traveled with us.” Special thanks to Angel Gala co-chairs Rita Gooch, Ruben Marquez and Stephanie Poole and their committee; emcee Chris Erskine; honorees Melissa Alcorn and Anderson & Murison; and the event sponsors, hospital partners, underwriters, donors, and Benefactors Society members.
