About Us

Our staff & volunteers

Friends of the man who touched all of our lives deeply, we were all proud to call him our brother.

Our history

Launched soon after his tragic passing, we all decided we wanted to do something to honor him and everything he meant to the community.

Our mission

Our mission is to give back to those people and causes closest to his heart: scholarships for kids, and donations to charities, local schools and others in need.  

Giving Back

Gino Panelli Foundation recently gave money to 3 great organizations:

Hospice of Santa Cruz

Boys & Girls Club of Santa Cruz

Care From The Heart

Please join us in thanking these organizations for their work in our community!

And, see our photo gallery below for the pictures of these checks being donated.

In addition, please support the local businesses you see in the gallery, who gave their support to our golf tournament in October.  Thank you everyone!
