The construction industry is not only helping to build Southern California — it plays a key part in supporting City of Hope.
Members of the Construction Industry Alliance raised more than $1.8 million for City of Hope’s cancer research and treatment programs in 2007. Southern California executives in the group recently celebrated the culmination of their successful year-long fundraising campaign.
The Construction Industry Alliance Spirit of Life® campaign was led by Bruce Elieff, chairman and chief executive officer of SunCal Companies. Elieff was presented with The Spirit of Life Award, the institution’s top philanthropic honor, at a gala dinner in Anaheim in October.
“I am honored to be a part of this outstanding group whose support of City of Hope dates back to 1974,” said Elieff. “The dedication of City of Hope’s physicians and scientists mirrors that of our industry members, who share the institution’s commitment to advancing research and finding cures for cancer and other serious diseases.”
