Cancer Support Community Pasadena (CSCP) recently received a charitable gift in the amount of $65,000 from the San Marino Motor Classic (SMMC). Since 2018, Aaron Weiss, founder of the San Marino Motor Classic, has included CSCP among the charitable recipients of the annual event.
Nearly 100% of CSCP’s operating expenses are covered by private donations, so community partners like the San Marino Motor Classic is critical to the organization’s operations. “No one impacted by cancer should face an additional financial burden to receive essential support,” said CSCP Executive Director Patricia Ostiller. “This tremendous gift will help to underwrite the programs we provide free of charge to people impacted by cancer in our community.”
Founded in 1990, Cancer Support Community Pasadena is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing professionally facilitated support groups, educational workshops, and healthy lifestyle classes for cancer patients and their families, survivors and those bereaved having lost someone to cancer. All of its programs are offered free of charge. For more information, visit cscpasadena.org or call 626-796-1083.
