Gerald Simonelli Celebrates Successful Fundraising

Posted August 17, 2015 by pzmediainc1

Gerald Simonelli has raised lots of money for many causes.

Gerald Simonelli is an Event Catering Lead and Manager for his church, a position he has held for over twenty years. He has used this outlet as an engine for community outreach for many years; and the past four have been especially fruitful. By shaving his head for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, he has effectively raised over $10,000 in the past four years, all of which will go towards helping pediatric cancer research efforts.

That’s not all that he has done. A storefront in Bloomingdale, Illinois has successfully undergone renovations to convert the space into a Youth Ministry Center. With the assistance of Director of Youth Ministry David Heimann, parish administrators, and Father Gerald Simonelli the church was able to raise funds for a project that had long been envisioned. The renovation work took about nine months to complete, but that paled in comparison to how long the church had hoped to open a youth center in their community. The new youth center houses five meeting rooms, a prayer room, and a recreational center equipped with a Nintendo Wii, a pool table, a foosball table, and a Ping-Pong table. It can house about 100 children from the area for nightly education sessions.

The youth center was a milestone in Gerald Simonelli’s career, which includes over 20 years of experience working for non-profit organizations in administrative roles. He brings energy, passion, and endless effort to the table for every project that he works on. He is a critical thinker that sees problems and finds solutions for them.

Gerald Simonelli has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communication from the University of St. Tomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. He also has a Masters of Divinity from the University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois. He has organized several mission trips to Bolivia that focused on aiding and improving orphanages, day care centers, and detention centers for orphans and homeless children.
