Irvine-based Quest International, a provider of imaging display hardware and information technology services solutions in the healthcare, manufacturing, aviation and commercial industries, has contributed $5,000 to the American Cancer Society for its Key Gala.

"We are pleased to make this donation on behalf of Quest International's customers and employees. Quest strives to make a difference every day in the communities we serve, and with this donation toward cancer research we are proud to impact the lives of others," said Kaye Katouzian, Quest’s vice president and chief operating officer.

Quest International, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, products range from in-flight entertainment screen displays on the backs on the airplane seats to mammography products. Many of their products are also used in the medical community to help detect and diagnose cancer.  

The American Cancer Society’s Key Gala, which will be held in Boston on March 29, will honor Robert Cascella, president and CEO of Hologic Inc., who has lead the company to be very active in Boston’s American Cancer Society programs.

Hologic, a Boston-based developer and manufacturer of diagnostic materials and surgical products for women, has been a long-time customer of Quest International.

This year’s sold-out Key Gala will recognize Cascella for his work as one of the main corporate donors in bringing the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center to Boston. The facility allows patients, who have to travel more than 40 miles for outpatient treatments, to stay overnight without charge.  

"This generous donation and sponsorship of the Key Gala made by Quest International is helping the American Cancer Society in our mission to help people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back," said Don Gudaitis, CEO for the American Cancer Society’s New England Division.
