CBCC Gala Benefits Children with Cancer



BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — The Annual Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center Foundation Gala featured a Mardi Gras-inspired theme with gourmet foods and wine tasting to benefit children with cancer in Kern County.

The event Saturday at the home of doctors Naina and Ravi Patel was a precursor to Monday's golf tournament at the Seven Oaks Country Club.

Money raised from the two events provides transportation for local cancer patients.

"In 2013, we provided complete transportation for more than 1,000 visits to hospitals, including Children's Hospital Central California in Madera, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, City of Hope, and many more," said Dr. Patel.
