California Bank & Trust has raised more than $35,000 through this year’s Together4Hope Walk, contributing to the total $100,000 raised for City of Hope.
Nearly 50 CB&T walkers participated in the Sept. 27 5K walk through De Anza Cove in Mission Bay, one of 23 teams that hosted more than 50 fundraising events.
CB&T hosted a series of events including Jeans Day, raffles and online fundraising that allowed customers and employees to participate and donate. The top fundraising branch was La Mesa, which raised more than $7,700.
City of Hope focuses on transforming scientific discoveries into better treatments and better prevention strategies for cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. City of Hope brings together businesses and individuals every year for its “Together4Hope” event to help deliver on its mission of curing cancer. The annual fundraising event’s mantra is “Together we walk, together for hope, together for a cure.”
In addition to CB&T, sponsors included Jerome's Furniture, General Dynamics NASSCO, San Diego 6/The CW, Anar Party Rentals, Sigma-Aldrich and The SUP Connection.
Two-day/40-mile walkers raised over $40,000 for City of Hope.
