The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara announced on 11/9 that it received a $500,000 donation from Montecito resident Elaine Stepanek. A press release stated that Stepanek and her late husband, Edward, have been generous supporters of the Cancer Center for years, allowing the center to rank among the finest facilities in the country. In recognition of the couple’s support, the Board of Trustees of the Cancer Center voted in October to name their Planned Giving Donor Club “The Elaine and Edward Stepanek Society.”
