Background on Santa Cruz Cancer Benefit Group:
SCCBG has funded cancer research and local groups -- including many that support people living with cancer -- since 1995. SCCBG was started by a small group of friends who used to play tennis together once a week; they had each lost a relative or friend to cancer and wanted to do something to make a difference. The first event the organization hosted was a Spring Forward Against Cancer Tennis Tournament and Celebration; these tournaments are still held each year. Proceeds from this year's Gourmet Grazing benefit these local cancer support and research organizations: Hospice of Santa Cruz County, Jacob's Heart Children's Cancer Support and Services, The Katz Cancer Resource Center, UC Santa Cruz Cancer Research, and WomenCARE.
