Silicon Valley Capital Club

Laura Pesavento

Who are you and what do you do and little about the Silicon Valley Capital Club. My name is Laura, I’m a local San Jose resident, a native, lived here all my life. I also volunteer at the Silicon Valley Capital Club in their charity council arena. I run this charity council throuought the whole year.

¿Quién eres y háblanos un poco sobre qué haces en el Club de Capital de Silicon Valley? Mi nombre es Laura, soy residente local de San Jose, nativa, viví aquí toda mi vida. También soy voluntaria en el Silicon Valley Capital Club en el área de consejo de caridad. Dirijo este consejo de Obras Benéficas durante todo el año.

How did Silicon Valley Get interested in Charity? Capital club has been invested in giving back to the community since it’s inception. They are very focused on giving back to the santa clara county and in any way shape or form. whether it be monetary or in kind or basically letting them have certain opportunities up here at the club.

¿Cómo se interesó Silicon Valley en Obras Béneficas? Capital club ha invertido en retribuir a la comunidad desde su inicio. Están muy enfocados en contribuir al condado de santa clara y en cualquier manera. ya sea monetario o en especie, o básicamente dejándolos tener ciertas oportunidades aquí en el club.

What is the biggest Charity event CC has done, and how much was raised? I think by far historically the charity classic, which is the one that happens in November is probably the highest grossed charity event and it depends each year on what organization is involved, how deeply they are involved, their reach trhoughout the Santa clara county is. The sky is the limit.

¿Cuál es el mayor evento de Caridad que CC ha realizado y cuánto se recaudó? Historicamente, creo que es el Clásico de Caridad, que es el que ocurre en Noviembre, es probablemente el evento de caridad con mayor recaudación y el monto depende cada año de la organización que lo realiza, de qué tan involucrada esté y de su alcance, si logran involucrar a todo el condado de Santa Clara. El cielo es el limite.

What made you decide to take on as a Chair for Charity Foundation at CC? I believe in goving back to the community. I have a partner in business Mike D' Ambrosio who is also very interested in giving back, so we both together are spearheading the charity council in ideas and doing whatever we can to give back. We believe that if you give back, your life becomes so much more enriched by giving your time, your treasure and your wealth. What should readers expect from you in the future? Readers’s should expect that I’m going to be raising a lot more money. I think that now is the time Silicon Valley is taking note that we need to be more involved with non propfits and giving back and people are banding together to get involved and helping these organizations become bigger and thrive and get some funding and either going there and helping out or finding a donor an underwtiter for any event. Please feel free to reach out to me. I would love to be an advocate for whatever non proit you are supporting or to put you together with someone you can be a partner with to help your organization thrive.

¿Qué te hizo decidirte como Presidente de la Fundación de la Caridad en CC? Creo el deseo de dar a la comunidad. Tengo un socio de negocio, Mike D 'Ambrosio, él también está muy interesado en ayudar, por lo que los dos estamos encabezando el consejo de obras béneficas, brindando ideas y haciendo todo lo posible por contribuir. Creemos que si devuelves, tu vida se enriquece mucho más al dar tu tiempo, tu tesoro y tu riqueza. ¿Qué deben esperar los lectores de usted en el futuro? Los lectores deben esperar que voy a recaudar mucho más dinero. Creo que ahora es el momento en que Silicon Valley esta entendiendo que tenemos que involucrarnos más con las organizaciones sin fines de lugro y contribuir, las personas se están uniendo para participar y ayudar a estas organizaciones a crecer, prosperar y obtener cierta financiación, o encontrar un donante como patrocinador para cualquier evento. Por favor, siéntase libre de comunicarse conmigo. Me encantaría brindar el soporte o guía necesaria en cualquier organización sin fines de lucro a la que esté apoyando o de ponerlo en contacto con alguien con quien pueda colaborar para que su organización prospere.
