James DeRosa Lucky Duck

Giving Back

James DeRosa, JDi‘s Chairman, has recently flown out to San Diego to support the The Lucky Duck Foundation’s 2011 Swing and Soirée charity gathering. This is the Lucky Duck Foundation’s 3rd annual golf and networking event in order to promote volunteerism and collect donations for their chosen causes. The weather was perfect (like San Diego always is), the attendees were all excited to gather and to enjoy a day out on the golf course and mix with others who share a common belief – that giving back to communities is what is truly important.
It was a great turnout. Hosted by Pat and Stephanie Kilkenny at the Santaluz Country Club, there were 128 golfers who teed off for the Swing and about 250 attendees for the Soiree. The Lucky Duck Foundation has managed to raise more than $200,000 this year and with the annual match from the Kilkenny’s, the donations will be tripled. All donations benefit The Challenged Athletes Foundation, Helen Woodward Animal Center, Father Joe’s Villages and The Fanconi Anemia Research Fund.

JDi enjoys supporting non-profits like the Lucky Duck Foundation that are creative in delivering charitable services for local and national communities who could use a helping hand. This is how we have built our company, believing in values above and beyond the traditional business environment. We are proud to support organizations that give back.
