Held on Saturday, April 23rd at the Brandview Ballroom, An Evening in Capri was a magical evening of Mediterranean delights and giving back. Funds raised from CSCP’s 32nd annual Angel Gala will support the organization’s efforts in sustaining and expanding programs offered free of charge to those facing cancer in Pasadena, East Los Angeles, the San Gabriel Valley and surrounding areas.
Chris Erskine, author and retired LA Times columnist, returned as Master of Ceremonies for the occasion. Co-Chairs Kal Balian Antoun, Elizabeth Arnett and Jeanne Naples Thompson chose a warm Mediterranean theme. The Co-Chairs and passionate committee created a touching program, exciting live and silent auctions, can’t-miss raffle full of unique prizes – and, of course, dancing.
This year’s Angel Gala honorees, Dana and Mike Naples and UBS Pasadena, are dedicated supporters of CSCP’s mission for over a decade. “Dana and Mike are among the organization’s most generous patrons and are current and past CSCP Directors, respectively,” said Patricia Ostiller, CSCP’s Executive Director. “Dana also chairs our Guild, a group of volunteers dedicated to the mission of CSCP with a common goal to execute CSCP’s outstanding fundraising events. Also, we’re grateful to UBS Pasadena for caring about the local community and generously supporting CSCP through its charitable giving program.”
Cancer Support Community Pasadena provides free support groups, educational workshops, and healthy lifestyle classes to cancer patients, their families/caregivers, cancer survivors, and those bereaved in the greater San Gabriel Valley. Services are available in English, Spanish and (soon) Armenian. For more information, go to cscpasadena.org or call 626-796-1083.
