Did you hear the record breaking total set during Day of Hope? Dollars continued to be donated and the total after May 1 was $232,018!

On April 30, Mission Hope Cancer Center transformed itself into a party atmosphere as the many teams, sponsors, volunteers, and event partners were honored. The top three teams were also celebrated during this special evening soirée. 

The incredibly competitive Rancho Harvest and the Marian Home Health and Convent teams raised over $6,000, earning a tie for the top spot. Maggie Daane's Dream Team earned second place with $5,488, and Michelle Shipman's Old Orcutt Team earned third place with $3,598 raised. 

Three other groups were also honored at this evening event. Catreina Lyon's Team Betty, named in memory of her late mother, won Rookie of the Year award for raising nearly $3,000 in their inaugural year. Becky Taylor's Cancer Buckers were awarded the Spirit Award for the best dressed team. Lidos Food Truck and Daniel Urquhart was awarded the Carol J. Reiner Award for giving back to the community (read more of this story below).

A big thank you to the community and congratulations to the top teams!

Carol J Reiner Award Recipient: Daniel Urquhart

You may have seen him at a local fair or food truck rally. If you haven't tried a Lidos' cheesesteak, then you are missing out on one of Santa Maria's food gems! There is more to owner Daniel Urquhart than a great meal though, he's a man of generosity and kindness, as displayed during Day of Hope.
