Making a Difference

Recently I was honored to be one of six San Diegans honored as an “Altruist of the Year” by Modern Luxury magazine at their Charity & Social Date Datebook release party event held at a stunning home in Rancho Santa Fe. It was truly a spectacular night, and one for the books! Other honorees included Bill Malloy, Carol Lazier, Sean Daneshmand and Mortazavi, and Patti Judd.


It was a privilege to be recognized while surrounded by my beautiful wife, colleagues and friends, and to join the elite crowd of philanthropists who are as passionate about giving back as I am.

Since the day I started my catering company about 12 years ago, part of my plan was to support local charities. Giving back has always been a part of our company’s core values and values that were instilled in me by my family while growing up in Italy.

As a competitive cyclist, charities with a sports connection like the Challenged Athlete’s Foundation are near and dear to my heart. Those that help children in need including Voices for Children, Ronald McDonald House and Rady Children’s Hospital are others that I support personally as well as through Giuseppe Restaurants & Fine Catering.


I hope you’ll consider making a donation to any of these organizations or even giving of your time as a volunteer. I promise you’ll get back much more than you give.

Thanks to all of you, my valued catering clients and restaurant guests, for your support through the years and allowing me the opportunity to help make a difference in our community.
