Cancer Support Community Pasadena Launches “Be the Key” Capital Campaign to Fund Permanent Facility

Published on Monday, October 24, 2022 | 7:04 pm

After 32 years of providing support, education and hope to families facing cancer – in three different leased facilities – Cancer Support Community Pasadena has purchased a permanent facility in Sierra Madre. Having concluded the ‘quiet phase’ of a $3.75 million capital campaign to fund the purchase, the organization marked the launch of the public phase of the campaign with an event called “Be the Key.”

On Sunday evening, over 60 guests kicked off the new “Be the Key” Capital Campaign at the home of Jim and Gail Ellis. Board Members, donors, program participants, and friends were all invited to come out and enjoy delicious bites from Rustic Gourmet, enjoy the beautiful view, and connect with friends old and new in celebration.  

“We plan to move our operations to our wonderful new home in Spring 2023,” said Patricia Ostiller, Executive Director. “Thanks to the transformative generosity of Ellen and Harvey Knell, along with three additional lead donors, we have achieved our first goal – purchasing the property. We look forward to joining hands with our entire community to help us ensure a successful campaign and a seamless transition to our new home.”

Board member and lead donor Ellen Knell spoke to guests about the importance of this forever home for Cancer Support Community’s participants, staff, and the community. Knell said that “this is a dream come true for so many.”

Board members Brad Talt and Steve Ralph also took to the stage to thank the campaign’s generous donors to date, and speak to the need for CSC’s entire community to become a part of this important campaign.

The group said those who would like to “Be the Key” for those facing cancer in our community, visit or call (626) 796-1083.
