On October 16th, the popular Think Pink fundraiser returned to Altadena Town and Country Club, once again benefiting Cancer Support Community Pasadena (CSCP). The cloudy skies and fall weather didn’t deter club members from dressing in every shade of pink in honor of the event and its beneficiary. This year’s fundraiser included tennis, cornhole, delicious food, and creative pink drinks. There was also a fun silent auction with 100% of the proceeds going to CSCP. Attendees included Jaclin Ostoforoff, Tennis Director and “Think Pink” founding member Fred Guerra and Jaclin Ostoforoff, member of the club’s Board of Governors once again took the lead in producing this crowd-favorite annual event. CSCP Director of Events Kim Burbank Ferreira, and CSCP Board Member Alison Gamble attended, as did club members Ian Wong and Matt Nix. Mr. Nix served as Master of Ceremonies, and Ian shared a personal story of how his family has been touched by cancer. To close out the event, Alison Gamble took to the stage, emphasizing Cancer Support Community’s commitment to expanding its reach across our community…so that no one faces cancer alone. She also announced that the organization will move to its “forever home” in Sierra Madre in Spring 2023.
Altadena Town and Country Club is extending the donation period through the end of October. To make a gift to this year’s “Think Pink”, visit CSCP.link/thinkpink.
