Contra Costa Oncology Donates $5K to Local Food Bank

"You Skate, We Donate" fundraiser ran November through January at Walnut Creek ice rink.

Contra Costa Oncology, in a 2013-2014 "You Skate, We Donate" holiday partnership with Walnut Creek on Ice, recently delivered a check of $5,145 to the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano -- which will provide 11,000 meals or more than 36,000 pounds of fresh produce, according to organizers.

From November to January, for every skating ticket that was collected at the ice rink, Contra Costa Oncology matched it with a donation to the food bank. 

The campaign "You Skate. We Donate" provided the opportunity for the local community to get involved with the fundraising efforts, while enjoying a fun time at the rink.

Organizers credit the community, Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce and SpecialIce in helping make the Contra Costa Oncology fundraising effort a huge success!
