For its first fully sponsored gathering since the onset of the pandemic, Cancer Support Community held a dinner honoring its benefactors.
About 40 donors, partners and Cancer Support staff attended the dinner at Bistro 45 restaurant in Pasadena to thank donors for their contributions and support to the organization.
The event was led by Patricia Ostiller, the organization’s executive director. “The last in-person appreciation dinner we had for our benefactors and patrons was in February 2019,” Ostiller said.
“Now, in 2022, we couldn’t wait to see these exceptionally generous donors and thank them — face to face — for their continuing support of our mission. We appreciate our benefactors and patrons who give from their hearts and provide significant resources for our work,” she added.
