Nino Venturella


CEO of San Diego Creative Events

As long time San Diego resident, Nino has built a large network of business relationships over 15+ years in the wealth management and mortgage industry. Prior to jumping into a career in finance, Nino was an art major who realized being a starving artist wasn't for him. He was able to tap into his creative side as he planned client events and training seminars which separated him from colleagues.

Having a passion for organizing niche philanthropic events, this led him to create the non-profit Cruise 4 Kids (C4K). C4K’s mission is to raise money through their charity events to support and fund other kids and youth organizations on a local, state, federal, and global level. C4K is truly a non-profit meaning that the officers do not take a salary and dedicate their time and resources for free. C4K produces The Teddy BallThe Bunny Ball, and Cruise 4 Kids Car Rally & Shows.

San Diego Creative Events (SDCE) was founded by Nino Venturella, a person who has a reputation for producing over the top events and parties. From shutting down the Coronado Bridge and I-5N freeway for a 150 exotic car rally for Cruise 4 Kids to black-tie fundraisers with over 2,000+ attendees, SDCE can make anyone’s vision a reality. His vision began in 2011 with the start of Cruise 4 Kids which has become San Diego's fastest growing non-profit. By creating various themed fundraisers and helping other organizations with their events, SDCE has relationships and access to niche resources and vendors that separate us from the competition. Nino is also the Social Chairman for Karma International San Diego Chapter, an exclusive, private membership organization dedicated to connecting exceptional & inspirational individuals both socially & professionally. As the Social Chairman, he is instrumental in organizing their mixers, signature socials, and themed events. Events include yacht parties, pool parties, poker tournaments, holiday parties, and mixers at exclusive venues and private residences. 

Nino and his wife Bianca created Cruise 4 Kids, a 501(c)3 as a way to give back to the community. Each event produced by Cruise 4 Kids helps promotes and/or benefits different charities as a way to diversify its philanthropy.
