Claudia Bertolino becomes first female Guest of Honour at a fundraiser
Congratulations to Citco’s Claudia Bertolino (Head of Business Development) for being the first female Guest of Honour at this year’s St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters’ fundraiser.
‘I’m thrilled to be the first female Guest of Honour at this year’s St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters’ fundraiser.
I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved with St. Francis for years. Located in Madison Square Garden, their network stretches as a distributor to 22 other pantries around greater New York, and goes beyond hunger relief to address underlying causes as well. This includes anything from literacy efforts to domestic violence prevention, and their dedication to upholding a sense of dignity for their visitors remains unparalleled.
St. Francis also stands out for the quality of the people involved. The individuals I’ve worked with actively go beyond mere financial donations and join event planning committees, secure donation items, market the events and successfully solicit people to engage, spread the word and donate their talents in many different ways. This past Thanksgiving, for example, we succeeded in helping to donate and deliver 7,000 turkeys in one week.
I encourage you all to learn more about the St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters and consider getting involved with such a great organization!’
