Cancer Center Community Crusaders Receive Donated Funds

The Cancer Center Community Crusaders (4Cs) received a donation of more than $1,400 from the Pinsonneault Family and Elks Lodge 567 in Bennington. Ed and Pat Pinsonneault and their children served countless meals to locals and visitors at the Vermont Steak House on Main Street in Bennington for 35 years. For the past four years, the siblings have used the former restaurant’s famous hospitality and signature recipes to benefit local charities, with the Elks Lodge graciously hosting the event. This year’s profit amounted to more than $4,000, which is divided among the three local causes: Silver Towers Camp for people with disabilities; Turning Point Club; and the Cancer Center Community Crusaders, the donation to which is dedicated in loving memory to Shiela Pinsonneault Gore. The 2020 dinner will be held on Friday, April 24.

The 4Cs have raised over $54K in funds to provide financial and emotional support to members of the community and their families as they receive cancer care and treatment administered with cooperation from the Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center and the Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) Foundation. All these funds stay in Bennington and Windham counties in Vermont and nearby New York and Massachusetts. Patients need not receive treatment at Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center to be eligible for funds.
