Guests gathered at the beautiful Piedmont residence of Melissa and Ali Partovi on Nov. 11 to recognize and thank sponsors of the Cancer League’s upcoming annual black-tie event, Holly Ball.

Cancer League President Lucy Ridgway and 2021 Holly Ball Chairperson Jenna Caldwell welcomed the guests. “We love celebrating our sponsors who make it possible for us to fund groundbreaking cancer research at its early stages,” said Ridgway.

The event was organized by Cancer League members Rebecca Heywood and Brooke Wall and brought sponsors and donors together to give Cancer League members the opportunity to extend their gratitude to the Ball’s generous benefactors.

This year’s sponsors include the David & Susan Martin Foundation, Jeannine & Ben Gillikin, Mr. Gary Kovacs, John Muir Health/UCSF Health, J.P. Morgan Private Bank, Jenna & Jack Caldwell, The Grubb Company, Celine & Alistair MacTaggart and Camilla & Shahan Soghikian.

The annual Holly Ball will be held on Friday, Dec. 3 at the Claremont Country Club. This year’s theme is “A Medieval Knight.” The event provides significant support for the Cancer Leagues’ mission to help fund cancer research, early detection, education, and patient care.
