Antoun Will Lead Cancer Support Community Board of Directors

The Cancer Support Community Greater San Gabriel Valley Board of Directors has elected city native Kalmoune “Kal” Balian Antoun, a John Muir High School and Cal State Northridge graduate, as its new president. “CSC is near and dear to me, as cancer is no stranger to my family. I know firsthand that ‘it takes a village’ to cope with cancer,” Antoun said. “My involvement with CSC started 10 years ago with the launch of our first Ladies Night Out at the Ice House. It was there and then that I knew where my commitment and passion would reside.”

Antoun has served as chair of CSC’s volunteer guild for the past four years. She has chaired the organization’s annual Ladies Night Out fundraiser and its Angel Gala several times.

No stranger to philanthropy, Antoun also chairs the Arcadia Association of Realtors Events for Charity and participates on the board of the Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors Charitable Foundation. She served in leadership capacities on the parent boards of Mayfield Junior School, St. Francis High School and Loyola High School. She also served on the Pasadena National Charity League board and is a past member of the Huntington Circle.

“We’re excited for what the future holds for CSC under Kal’s leadership. Her experience and skill set, coupled with her driving commitment to serve others, will position CSC to serve families facing cancer during these uncertain times and into the future,” said CSC Executive Director Patricia Ostiller.

“I am deeply honored to be elected as the new board president and look forward to working with my board colleagues to move CSC’s mission forward,” Antoun said.

Antoun is a mortgage broker with C2 Financial and is a part of the TG Mortgage team in Pasadena. She and her husband, Roy, live in Altadena. They have three grown children ― Matthew, Adam and Sara —along with the newest member of their family, Christina, Matthew’s wife.
