Tour of Paso Robles raises more than $100K for local cancer patients

Local cancer patients will get more help thanks to the success of the recent Tour of Paso Robles cycling event. 150 cyclists raced to raise money for the Central Coast Cancer Support Community, a free resource to local cancer patients and their families.  Together they raised more than $100,000 during the March 22nd event.  That's up $30,000 from last year. The team at Il Cortile Restorante in Paso Robles raised $20,000 and won first place in the fundraising event. With 13 riders, Team Il Cortile included Owner and Managing Partner, Carole MacDonal. Fundraising at Il Cortile included proceeds from a special "reverse wine dinner" menu crafted by Chef Santos MacDonal and his kitchen, as well as proceeds from the sale of complementing wine, L'Aventure Optimus. Additionally, servers at the restaurant donated a portion of their tips from the dinner toward Il Cortile's efforts in support of the Cancer Support Community. "Team Il Cortile epitomizes the philosophy of leadership and the team approach to fighting cancer," said Cancer Support Community Executive Director, Christie Kelly. "Carole and Santos' team has been a contender for the past three years, and that they were able to raise over twenty-thousand dollars is just phenomenal."
