The Fresh Produce & Floral Council, La Mirada, Calif., raised more than $160,000 for City of Hope National Medical Center, Los Angeles.

During the council’s annual membership luncheon, officials presented the center with more than $66,000 raised over the last year in the City of Hope’s Food Industries Circle Ad Rebate program, according to a news release.

During the luncheon, attendees were asked to pledge money to the center, raising nearly $8,000 in donations. Five custom-made photos earned $10,000 more. A raffle, which awarded prizes like $5,000 and $10,000 in cash, raised another $79,000.

The council said in the release it raised $190,000 for City of Hope this year, including the luncheon.

In mid-July, in its 2011-12 best hospitals report, U.S. News and World Report ranked City of Hope the 17th best cancer center in the nation, the highest position yet achieved by the center.
