Cruzin' for Life made the largest donation in the group’s history to Mission Hope Cancer Center during a special ceremony Wednesday.
Marian Regional Medical Center leaders received a check for $150,000, which was raised during the 14th annual Car Show and Cruise event in September.
This year’s gift brings Cruzin' for Life's total overall donation to $1,081,300 to Mission Hope Cancer Center, making it the largest third-party event donor.
The donation will benefit local cancer patients during the course of their treatment, such as assistance with transportation and housing.
Marian Cancer Care, at Mission Hope Cancer Center, is one of only three accredited Comprehensive Community Cancer Center programs between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
