Sept. 10--The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation will honor Southern California Edison'sVentura District for its charity efforts on behalf of the nonprofit foundation.
Foundation Executive Director Lindsey Leonard will present a Helping Hands Award at the organization's upcoming annual Gold Ribbon Luncheon, to be held at Coral Casino at the Biltmore Four Seasons Resort Santa Barbara. The award recognizes people, organizations and businesses that have been extremely active in their heartfelt volunteer work to benefit the foundation.
Commemorating its first 15 years, the foundation is dedicated to helping families in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties that have a child, up to age 21 years, with cancer. Founded in 2002, it has donated more than $1.7 million to families in need.
The Edison office has been a major foundation supporter since 2010. Led by regional administrator Angela King, a team of six staffers at Edison's Ventura service center has spent long hours every year volunteering, fundraising and otherwise providing vital assistance to the foundation. The group's efforts have included office-wide employee fundraising drives and events including golf tournaments, food fests and apparel sales.
For more information on the foundation, including how to become involved by volunteering or making a donation, attending its annual Gold Ribbon Luncheon on Oct. 5 or otherwise support kids with cancer, email [email protected] or call 563-4740.
