Strike Out Cancer Event Will Benefit NorthBay Cancer Center

Genentech’s facility is partnering with the Sacramento River Cats baseball team to create a fund-raising event, called Strike Out Cancer for the NorthBay Cancer Center.

“We’re honored to have been selected and feel privileged to be associated with these two organizations, as we all seek to help the local community in their struggles with cancer,” said Steven Ferris, director of the NorthBay Cancer Center.

Strike Out Cancer Day is Saturday, June 11, at Raley Field in Sacramento. Several NorthBay Cancer Center patients will be honored at the game.

Genentech Vacaville has agreed to make a donation for each strike out the team makes, not only during this game, but all home games throughout the season.

“Funds raised through this event will go directly to patient care,” Ferris added. The River Cats play the Tacoma Rainiers, with first pitch going out at 7:05 p.m.
