Sereno Group Donates $20,000 to Leading Voluntary Health Organization in Alzheimer’s Care – The Alzheimer’s Organization

LOS GATOS, CA – Sereno Group and its Los Gatos agents contributed 1% of their gross commissions to support Walk to End Alzheimer’s during the months of January through March 2017. Through 1% for Good campaign efforts, a check for $20,000 was presented to The Alzheimer’s Organization.

Alzheimer’s Disease is the fifth-leading cause of death in California, and the only cause of death among the top 10 in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Every dollar raised through Walk to End Alzheimer’s will help make a difference in the lives of millions of Americans facing the disease today – including the more than 610,000 Californians with Alzheimer’s and their over 1.5 million caregivers – while advancing research towards prevention, treatment and ultimately, a cure.

Launched in 2012, the 1% for Good program is an office specific, agent driven, grassroots movement that donates to local non-profit, community-minded organizations. Sereno Group was honored as one of the top 50 philanthropic corporate organizations in Santa Clara County for 2016 by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Sereno Group was recognized as a result of the efforts from its 1% for Good movement.

Sereno Group was joined on the top 50 list by prominent Silicon Valley corporations, such as: Cisco Systems, Intel, Sobrato Organization, PG&E, and Oracle. Out of the 50 organizations named by the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Sereno Group ranked 32nd.

“This recognition validates all of the great work our Realtors perform in the community and their collective generosity. It is also incredibly humbling to be honored by the Silicon Valley Business Journal once again for our charitable work,” said Chris Trapani, Founder and CEO of Sereno Group. “The 1% for Good movement is part of the ethos of Sereno Group and its agents which focuses on the community first. It is tremendously inspiring that our relatively smaller company with 330 Realtors would be sharing honors of giving alongside great organizations such as the San Jose Sharks, the Sobrato Organization, and Adobe.”
