Cancer Support Community Pasadena’s Virtual Angel Gala Is July 11

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cancer Support Community Pasadena has successfully gone virtual with its programs — offering online support groups, virtual educational workshops and healthy lifestyle classes to reach more women and men in the community who are facing cancer.
Now CSCP is going virtual with its fundraising, launching its first virtual gala on Saturday, July 11.
“Everyone is invited,” says Kim Ferreira, CSCP’s events manager. “The community’s participation in our virtual Angel Gala will allow CSCP to continue to be a community of support for its members, so that no one faces cancer alone.”
Gala co-chairs Ellen Driscoll, Sandy Kobeissi and Bill Ukropina, along with their dedicated committee, have been working hard to ensure that passion, excitement and fun will shine through in this new format. And although guests won’t be gathering in person on July 11, the event will gather the community together in spirit, celebrating 30 years of CSCP providing free support, education and hope to families facing cancer.
“Our gala honorees are Rosemari Annear, Bistro 45, City of Hope, Sharp Seating, and Charlotte Streng and the late Joel Streng,” said CSCP Executive Director Patricia Ostiller. “Their steadfast support and enthusiasm for this virtual format have been incredible — just another reason why this group of amazing individuals, businesses and hospital are so deserving of recognition and celebration.”
Sponsors from across the region have committed their support to the format and to the mission of CSCP. Anyone wishing to join this list may visit cscpasadena.org/fundraisingevents, email Kim Ferreira at k.ferreira@cscpasadena.org or call (626) 796-1083.
CSCP invites the community to participate in its virtual gala by:
• Joining CSCP in thanking honorees, sponsors and donors who are supporting the event, and considering becoming a sponsor or donor as well.

“Families facing cancer rely on CSCP now more than ever. We can’t thank our honorees, sponsors and donors enough for their dedication to people in our community who are facing cancer in the midst of a pandemic,” Ostiller said.
