The Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery presented a check this week to Cancer Support Community Pasadena after its social media campaign on Stella Rosa’s Instagram account during the breast cancer awareness month of October garnered almost 2,000 likes. As posted, for each like the photo received, the Riboli family would donate $1 to CSC Pasadena. Within a few days, the campaign raised $5000, after the Riboli family added to the total amount.
“We chose to donate to Cancer Support Community Pasadena, because they are such a great organization that not only helps cancer patients fight the fight, but helps bring hope and healing to patients and their families,” said Lisa Riboli, SAW Sponsorship & Events Director. “Whether it is the cancer patient taking yoga or meditation classes to cope, or a family member who benefits from hearing others talk about their situation in a weekly group session, CSCP is there with a warm smile and a cozy, safe place to help heal.”
“Cancer Support Community Pasadena is so grateful to the Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery for its tremendous donation of $5,000 to our organization” said Patricia Ostiller,
CSCP Director of Development. Through its thoughtful Stella Rosa social media campaign, the Ribolis raised awareness about breast cancer and the free services CSCP provides to cancer patients and their families. Thank you to this amazing family and incredible staff at the winery for making such a positive difference in the lives of people facing cancer.”
