In 2010, experienced manager Valentino Infante departed his home and business in Coral Springs, Florida — operated alongside his brother — for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the famed nonprofit St. Jude. Working with its ALSAC segment, or the American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities, Infante relocated to Memphis, Tennessee to become a bilingual representative for the organization’s Outsourced Operations. He hoped for upward growth with the nonprofit and aiding St. Jude through this vital ALSAC piece.
ALSAC emerged within St. Jude in 1957, founded by Danny Thomas to be a fundraising and awareness piece for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. ALSAC’s sole mission is raising funds as well as awareness toward the operation and maintenance of the hospital. Approximately 75% of the funds necessary to run St. Jude falls onto the ALSAC organization, making it a vital component. Infante was proud to help raise these necessary dollars and within three years of work with ALSAC, he was promoted to a Senior Liaison.
As Valentino Infante continues his work with St. Jude’s ALSAC, he hopes to continues the upward momentum with the organization as well as his success. He’s achieved goals already and achieved several awards and recognitions thus far, and has no plans to slow down any time soon as he aids St. Jude in its mission every day.
