For Cesar Biggeri, putting others first comes naturally.
As a long-time executive in the luxury hospitality industry, he’s accustomed to going above-and-beyond to deliver the highest level of service.
Just over two decades ago, Cesar witnessed an extraordinary example of commitment when his good friends Irma Seilicovich and Hugo Villa founded The Village to help underserved Latinx children and families in the San Fernando Valley.
“Irma and Hugo saw the need for bilingual, culturally sensitive services and stepped up,” noted Cesar. “I’ve always been interested in volunteering and immediately wanted to help.”
Cesar was so compelled by The Village’s compassionate and impactful work that he became the president of its Board of Directors, a position he held for more than ten years.
Today, Cesar continues to find creative ways to raise visibility and support for The Village. Each year he hosts a Facebook fundraising campaign to commemorate his birthday. And he actively engages his network of colleagues and friends to bring resources to The Village.
Most recently, Cesar connected with technology provider SADA Systems. The company made an in-kind donation of new, high-quality apparel to The Village’s Drop-In Center for distribution to homeless young people.
Whether he’s leading a major fundraiser for The Village or handing out Powerbars and information about the Drop-In Center to homeless youth, Cesar actively lives his philosophy: Even one person can make a positive impact.
