On March 18, the 50-member team at AGWorld headquarters in South San Francisco gathered for a happy hour dedicated to raising money and awareness for the American Cancer Society. Over food and wine donated by team members at AGWorld, Victoria Sciacqua, administrative assistant, told the story of her father’s longtime battle with cancer, which ignited a personal passion for fundraising for cancer research.
“I truly believe that the American Cancer Society helps take one of the loneliest moments in a person life – when they or their loved ones have been diagnosed with cancer - and makes them feel like they are a part of something much bigger, much greater,” Sciacqua said. “The American Cancer Society and all of its volunteers make cancer patients feel that they are not fighting this all on their own - because they’re not.”
The happy hour and continued fundraising over two weeks raised $3360 for the American Cancer Society. The donations will go towards cancer research, patient services, early detection, treatment, and education.
