Community Outreach


Monday, August 23, 2015

Pettinelli Financial Partners held its first ever golf tournament on August, 24 2015. One hundred percent of the proceeds went directly to Be The Match. Over 80 golfers attended and contributed to the cause. The event took place at Peninsula Golf and Country Club in San Mateo, CA.

Be The Match® is a unique nonprofit that delivers cures to blood cancer patients. Every four minutes someone is diagnosed with a life-threatening blood disease like leukemia, lymphoma, or sickle cell anemia. For many, the only chance for a cure is a marrow transplant from someone outside their family.

Many of you know and have met our advisor, Robert Olsen, as he has been with our firm for nine years now. He has undergone a tough two-year fight with rare lymphoma and completed two stem cell transplants. He is alive today, having now beat cancer, and attributes this exclusively to the work of this foundation. It would not be possible if not for his unknown donor's donation with the Be The Match® Registry.

Celebrities, such as Vida Blue and Bill Laskey, showed up to support the cause. Overall, the day raised a total of $26,893.00.

On Sunday, June 24th Pettinelli Financial Partners will volunteer for the organization Sandwiches on Sunday. Sandwiches on Sunday was started by St. Pius to provide additional food resources for the homeless and less fortunate members of the Redwood City community. As a special treat, we will be cooking a hot meal and serving it up right off the grill. We invite you to join us for this very unique and rewarding experience. Please contact Leslie Pettinelli at or 650.595.4600 for more information.


July 1-August 31, 2012

St. Anthony's of Menlo Park has been serving our local community for over 30 years through their food kitchen, clothing distribution store, and health services. Members of the community visit the distribution store for everything from clothing for job interviews to labor jobs to school, all of which are free of charge. Pettinelli Financial Partners carefully selected St. Anthony's as the recipient of this clothing drive because they are one of the few organizations who still accept used dress clothing. While St. Anthony's is always looking for more volunteers, you can help by just taking a few minutes to go through your closet and drawers before your next visit to Pettinelli Financial Partners. For more information, please feel free to contact Leslie Pettinelli at or 650.595.4600.
