Our Story

C4K “Cruise 4 Kids” is a non-profit organization that started as a sports & exotic car rally fundraiser in 2011 by founder Nino Venturella as a benefit for the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. With the immense success of the rally, he created a black tie charity event called The Teddy Ball in 2013 which benefited Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego. In September of 2014, C4K received its 501(c)3 status and now organizes multiple events that benefit various youth organizations and foundations. C4K is on the path to grow its outreach through its unique events, fundraisers, and branding. Our board is comprised of 6 members who have each contributed numerous hours and their expertise to build C4K into the great foundation it is today.

Our Mission

C4K’s mission is to raise money through our 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 board members do not take a salary and dedicate their time and resources for free. "We don't put on just any event, it's an experience," say founder Nino Venturella. "We want to help promote and bring awareness to other non-profits in the community that may not have the resources or ability to organize niche events."
