There was big news afoot on Nov. 4 at the Northern California Cancer Center’s 35 Years: The Legacy Anniversary awards dinner.
NCCC CEO Sally Glaser announced that in early 2010 the center will change its name to the Cancer Prevention Institute of California.
Which caused a few pauses at the podium as speakers mentally scrambled to ascertain the correct initials to employ as they honored the research of Dr. Alice Whittemore and the fund-raising efforts of Hilary Newsom Callan and her husband, Geoff Callan.
No lobsters were served at the PlumpJack/LINK Golf Classic. But after a wind-whipped day on the greens at the Lake Merced Golf & Country Club, the face of many a golfer arriving for the awards dinner at the Clubhouse bore a bright lobster red hue.
Hosted by the the PlumpJack Group in support of the Northern California Cancer Center, this group of dedicated golfers (which includes a few duffers, too) raised $175K for the NCCC’s LINK Fund which provides research and education programs to breast cancer patients and their families.
