Nino Venturella – Children Services | Nonprofit

With over two decades as a steadfast resident of San Diego, my professional journey has been a testament to the power of forging enduring business connections. My career trajectory has seen a remarkable evolution, beginning with my roots as an art major, and ultimately leading me to thrive in the dynamic landscape of wealth management and mortgage. The shift from a potential life as a starving artist was informed by an innate desire for both creativity and stability.

In the realm of finance, I found my niche in orchestrating client events and educational seminars. These endeavors not only showcased my imaginative prowess but also set me apart from my peers in the finance arena. Yet, it was my fervor for organizing philanthropic initiatives that ignited a new chapter in my professional narrative. The inception of Cruise 4 Kids (C4K) in 2011 marked a pivotal moment. As the driving force behind this non-profit endeavor, I’ve orchestrated impactful fundraisers that resonate locally, statewide, nationally, and globally.

C4K’s altruistic mission is steadfast – to champion children and youth organizations through charitable events that transcend borders. A defining hallmark of C4K lies in its uncompromising dedication to being a true non-profit. Our team of officers operates on a volunteer basis, with unwavering commitment and a shared vision. Notable events like The Teddy Ball, The Bunny Ball, and Cruise 4 Kids Car Show stand as living testaments to C4K’s far-reaching impact.

Presently, as the Director of Sales and Sponsorships at Pump House Media, I’ve aligned my expertise with a visionary enterprise. Our role in building, amplifying, and monetizing brands through comprehensive media marketing, apparel print services, and event activations is driven by a commitment to excellence. The bedrock of our approach lies in shouldering the logistical burdens, allowing brands to concentrate on their core identity and growth.

Our proud affiliation with prominent automotive marques like Speed Society, VP Racing Fuels, Mustang Dyne, Whipple Superchargers, and NHRA Drag Racing Racer Alex Laughlin speaks to the caliber of our services. As we embark on a path of expansion across diverse industries, the opportunity to engage with Pump House Media promises to be transformative. If you seek to elevate your brand’s resonance and revenue, reach out today, and discover how we can elevate your brand to new heights.
