Orange and Blue Ball

On Saturday, November 7th, 2015, The dg Foundation hosted the Orange and Blue Ball fundraiser at the beautiful Castello di Amorosa, in Napa Valley. The dg Foundation and it’s board of directors wants to thank all of our attendees and generous and supportive sponsors who made The Orange and Blue Ball fundraiser at the Castello Di Amorosa in Napa Valley a magical night, and a complete success. This wonderful event in honor of Dino and Nancy Ghilotti will help fund scholarships to students, athletes, and artists to follow their dreams at San Domenico Grammar School, Marin Catholic High School, the University of Miami, and also improve and renovate art facilities across the nation. It is your generosity and support that will make a difference in the lives of students who are passionate for academics, athletics and arts.

Below is a link to a video that was shown the night of the event. Enjoy!

The dg Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in honor of Dino Richard Ghilotti Motta, after he left us tragically in May of 2013 at the young age of 22. Recently, Nancy has been added as an honoree of the foundation along with her son Dino. The foundation will carry on the legacy of a young man and his mother with a passion for academics, athletics, and arts. The dg Foundation is dedicated to helping students with similar passions, by awarding scholarships to San Domenico School, Marin Catholic High School, the University of Miami, and improving art programs and facilities across the nation.

Since its inception, The dg Foundation has been specifically focused on celebrating Dino’s life example by recognizing inclusiveness in academics, athletics and art. We have collaborated with multiple organizations to improve the lives of students through scholarships and facility enhancements at various schools. In 2014, the University of Miami gave out our first Dino Ghilotti Motta ‘Canes Care for Canes’ scholarship to an art student from California. The dg Foundation, Ghilotti Construction, and a generous group of family friends also helped fund the new Dino Ghilotti Motta Stadium complex at Marin Catholic High School. Recently, we started renovation and restoration of the art building at San Domenico School where Dino began his studies and developed his passion for art. The building will be ultimately named the Dino Ghilotti Motta Art Studio.

Dino was a great artist, athlete, student and a passionate friend. He was an exceedingly kind and humble young man who was open-hearted, inclusive of others, gave of himself freely and used art to express what he saw and visualized of the world. His constant desire to help his peers inspired his family and friends to carry on his legacy with this much needed foundation to help others in a similar way that Dino and Nancy would have. For this reason, The dg Foundation asks that you consider participating in this year’s Orange and Blue Ball that will provide important benefits and funding to these schools and art programs in need.
