Fund Raising

Fund Raising


Members of the Geneva-Excelsior put a lot of effort into raising funds for our giving efforts. Numerous projects are held throughout the year to provide the needed funds. Our fund raisers include:


Youth & Community Activities Raffle

A perpetual winner, this raffle is not only supported by our members, but also provides a vehicle for community organizations to raise funds as well. Outside organizations are able to participate in the raffle, which usually has a car as the grand prize, with no setup charges or fees. They are able to receive back 70% of their sales for their organization.

Castagnetto / Speciacci Memorial Crab Feed

This past March, the newly name Castagnetto / Spediacci Memorial Crab Feed returned with a bang.

Lion Bob Fenech and crew held an excellent event, and will be leading the event again this coming February. This year we will be limiting the event to 200 seats and are looking forward to have a great time.

Football Fundraiser

This fund raiser adds a lot of fun to the San Francisco 49ers games, as well as the playoffs and SuperBowl. This annual project is always sold out in advance. If interested in participating just send us an email.


Charity Golf Tournament

Charity Golf Tournament

This event, although not held every year, is a great draw for our golfing supporters and members. Usually 40 to 60 players in size, it's lots of fun and excitement. The event is held when one of our members makes the effort to put together a team and plan it out.


Giulio Francesconi Memorial Charity Raffle

Giulio Francesconi Memorial Charity Raffle

Giulio Francesconi Memorial Charity Raffle

This was one of our most successful fund raising events. It raised funds through the sale of a limited number of raffle tickets. The raffle began in 1979 and ran through 2015. Unfortunately we were forced to end the fund raiser because it did not conform with California law.
