Exciting announcement coming soon!



Sandy Stec is 1/2 of "Marcus and Sandy"- a highly rated morning radio show in San Francisco on Star 101.3. (Weekdays, 6am-10am.) For almost 20 years, she's worked her way up from a weekend shift in San Jose, to her current status- mornings in the 4th largest radio market in the country. Additionally, she can be heard on her sister-station in Los Angeles- KOST 103.5. She is also a hilarious and HIGHLY booked stand-up comedian. She's worked with greats like Kevin Hart, Chelsea Handler, Arsenio Hall, Dana Carvey, Craig Shoemaker, Richard Lewis, Brett Butler, and many, many more. She's worked for corporations like HP, Benefit Cosmetics, Caymus Vineyards; and her recent Britney Spears parody "Snack B**ch" made it on TV's "Right This Minute."

Though extremely driven, Sandy does have a weakness for buttercream frosting, and penny slot machines.



Born and raised in Oakland, California, Clinton Jackson officially claimed his identity as a stand-up comic at the young age of 9. After graduating high school, Clinton began to hone his craft in San Francisco’s thriving comedy scene, quickly moving up the ranks to become one of the city’s youngest headliners. Guest appearances on family friendly networks The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon showcased Clinton’s trademark guy-next-door appeal. His recent appearances include ABC’s “THE GOLDBERGS”, “FRESH OFF THE BOAT”,  Disney’s “COOP & CAMI ASK THE WORLD”, Starz “BLUNT TALK”, CW’’s “JANE THE VIRGIN”,  ABC FREEFORM “YOUNG AND HUNGRY”.

When not performing, Clinton takes it outside to “hype” the teams of the Tough Mudder Competitions.

2018 Highlights

SOLD OUT PACE Party Raised $157,000

300 guests arrived at UC Berkeley's University Club on Thursday, May 3, 2018 to help CEI celebrate the 10th Annual PACE Party fundraiser! The sold out event was CEI's most successful PACE Party to date and exceeded all fundraising goals! $157,000 was raised to expand PACE services into East Contra Costa counties and provide at-risk seniors the services they need to continue living independently; and all thanks to the generosity of more than 70 sponsors, community partners, health care professionals, individual donors, and staff!!

The clear day had guests relishing spectacular views of the three bridges and birds eye view of Cal Memorial Stadium; while networking, fundraising, and enjoying delicious hor' dourves and CEI's signature cocktail, the PACE Maker. The main Entertainment of the evening was CEI's very own PACE Setter Singers - a participant choir - who dazzled the crowd with three songs and showcased their abilities thanks to care they receive at CEI.

In Their Voice: Senior Perspectives, the feature video, was produced by Justice in Aging and included CEI senior participants, as well as seniors from CEI's partner safety net organizations. Thank you Justice in Aging for this very generous donation!
