Convening for the good of the California-based cancer treatment and research center, executives and supporters filled a banquet room at the Rosen Plaza Hotel here on the eve of the International Builders' Show to honor the man of the hour: Ace Hardware's Ray Griffith.

The City of Hope has received a three-year, $535,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation that will enable it to remodel the main facilities office of Hope Village, a housing complex located on the cancer center’s campus.

Hope Village provides residential units for 40 patients and their caregivers while they are undergoing cancer treatment. The grant will help upgrade electricity and plumbing and bathroom fixtures in the office, which provides shared facilities for those staying at Hope Village.
