- Maria Concetta Cilluffo
FOUNDER, PRESIDENT
Maria founded C3 in 2013. It is a non-profit organization that was formed in memory of Maria's older sister, Caterina "Kathy" Cilluffo, who passed away from Hodgkins Disease in 2003. C3 serves primarily as a 3rd party fundraiser and gives back in both care and cure promoting wellness. Maria is a natural born leader who is results-oriented and has diverse entrepreneurial experience. Along with establishing and nurturing C3, Maria has been focused on real estate related ventures. Her hands-on experience in the business world has allowed her to thoroughly understand what it takes to be a successful business owner and investor. She has valuable real-world experience and understands the importance of micromanaging budgets and overhead while not compromising on delivery and quality. Her work ethic along with her zest and passion are what leave Maria unmatched among her peers. Maria will always be involved in business but her real dream is to give back, carry out her philanthropic mission, and continue to inspire through her sister's memory and legacy. She strives to make the world a better place and ensure that she is sending out the message that life needs to be enjoyed not simply endured. Maria was only 12 years old when Kathy was diagnosed. She spent the majority of her adolescence at her sister's side while she courageously fought her battle with Hodgkins. "I can truly sit here and tell you after 10 years the biggest tragedy in my life has turned into the biggest blessing; defining me and building such character. This growth and healing process is all possible through tremendous faith and trust in God's will and Kathy continually shining her light down."
