ANTHONY RUGIERO, CHAIRMAN — THE RUGIERO PROMISE FOUNDATION
In 2011, Anthony Rugiero established the Rugiero Promise Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit volunteer-only organization. “I made a vow that in gratitude for all of God’s blessings, our family would never stop working to help those less fortunate,” he says. The foundation is committed to improving quality of life in the community and extends help to individuals of all means, bringing hope and the promise of a better future. In the past six years, Mr. Rugiero, supported by the dedication of his family and board, has grown the foundation, making important contributions to many diverse charities. University of Michigan Diabetes Research Center calls Rugiero Casino Royale, an annual Foundation event, a significant resource for funding contributions benefiting diabetes research. The event honors Mr. Rugiero’s father and will be held this year in Dearborn on Oct. 28. It is our mission to make this event the hallmark in finding a cure for diabetes. Visit rugieropromise.org.
