Why do you support Big Brothers Big Sisters?

I support BBBS because I believe that it is very important for our youth to have mentors in their life.  I have seen the impact that Bigs have on their Littles and it’s life changing.  Having a Big provides the Little with a consistent role model, helps them feel more confident and allows them to do fun activities outside of their home.

Who was your biggest mentor growing up and how did they shape who you are today?

I have been lucky to have to several mentors in my life but the two that stand out are my grandfather, Frank Fornaca and my sister, Marianna Fenelli Khouri. My grandfather Frank is the founder of our business, Frank Motors. He instilled in me the importance of taking care of your employees, customers, and community. He was the most humble, genuine, and kind person. He taught me to treat people how you would like to be treated. My older sister, Marianna has always been there for me as a role model. She taught me how to have confidence, how to excel in sports and business. I’m fortunate to be able to work together with her on a daily basis.  For me, family is most important and I was blessed with several mentors. I think all kids should have that same opportunity.
