The 27th Annual Angel Gala, “Shake, Rattle & Roll” benefiting Cancer Support Community Pasadena was held at the Annandale Golf Club. This fun-filled event featured a reception, dinner, entertainment, silent auction and a live auction. This year’s Angel Award Honorees were LeAnn & Michael O. Healy and Whittier Trust for their generous and consistent support throughout the years.

The sold-out crowd of approximately 350 guests came dressed in their best 50′s attire. With 50′s themed appetizers, attendees were busy bidding on the many silent auction items and enjoying tunes from that bygone era. During dinner, diners were able to bid on exclusive trips, sporting events and decedent dinners.

Angel Gala raises money for Cancer Support Community Pasadena which provides free services to cancer patients and their family members, including professionally led support groups, educational workshops and healthy lifestyle classes. Over 1000 people walked through CSCP’s doors in 2018, and the organization expects to serve more even more this year with expanding programs.

CSCP is located at 76 E. Del Mar Blvd, Suite 215 in Pasadena, on the second floor of the Pasadena Humane Society’s building. For more information, please call (626) 796-1083 or visit www.cscpasadena.org.
