// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED
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 said. Since then, the foundation has grown, making important contributions to many diverse charities. The University of Michigan’s 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. It is the foundation’s mission to make this event the hallmark in finding a cure for diabetes.
The foundation is proud to support these organizations: Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan, Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute, Capuchin Soup Kitchen, ILICA , Boys’ & Girls’ Towns of Italy, The Garden Party, Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museum, The National Kidney Foundation, Beaumont/Oakwood Foundation and the International Heritage Foundation.
