The Cancer Prevention Institute of California (CPIC), based in Fremont, has received a $10,000 sponsorship donation from Fremont Bank, commemorating 40 years of leadership and achievement in population-based cancer prevention research and education.
ÒWe are honored to celebrate this important milestone with CPIC and acknowledge this valued organization for four decades of groundbreaking research on cancer prevention,Ó said Marie-Pascale Peterson, Fremont BankÕs director of community outreach. ÒFremont Bank was founded on the premise that our success and generosity is made possible by long-standing partnerships with the community, including our non-profit partners,Ó Peterson said.
CPIC is dedicated to understanding the causes of cancer, ways to prevent it and detect it early, and to improving outcomes for cancer survivors. Dori Ives, director of development and communications at CPIC, thanked Fremont Bank for its outstanding record of community service and ongoing generous support.
ÒFremont Bank is exemplary in its commitment to philanthropy,Ó Ives said. ÒOur partnership with Fremont Bank greatly enhances our ability to achieve our mission of preventing cancer and reducing its burden where it cannot yet be prevented.Ó

The anniversary event, Pioneering Prevention, is open to the public and will include a reception and silent auction, followed by dinner and a program.
