After graduating from Pepperdine University Corina Borg moved to NYC to start her career. She spent 14 years honing her design skills as a buyer for Ralph Lauren in New York City before deciding to focus on her family. She volunteers for local nonprofit organizations in her hometown of Summit, NJ, and has served on the boards of the Area Baby Center and the school district’s Parent Teacher Organization. Corina and her family also volunteer at Family Promise shelter sites, serving meals and offering support to families in the program. Her dedication to Family Promise’s mission compelled her to find a way to do even more for families in need.
As manager of special events, Corina plans events that raise awareness of the issue of family homelessness and garner support for families facing a housing crisis. She brings her creative design talents, attention to detail, and organizational skills to the task of conceiving, planning, and hosting all of Family Promise’s events, from jacket-and-tie-required galas, art gallery receptions, and theme parties, to bring-the-kids family fun days, staff outings, and more. As she likes to say, “Life’s a party!” Of course, there’s more to Corina’s work than meets the eye – she’s responsible for the fundraising component of every benefit she runs, and she works closely with major donors and high-level corporate sponsors to help secure funds for families facing homelessness. Some of her events have raised record amounts for the organization. All of her events are the ticket to have.
When she’s not working, Family Promise’s hostess with the mostest can be found spending time with her husband Josh, daughters Abbie and Campbell, and three rescue dogs (because two isn’t enough) Coco, Molly, and Wyatt (All three dogs started out as foster pets, so Josh put a temporary stop to the fostering animals thing.) Corina was born in Mexico City and moved to the United States as a child, but she still speaks Spanish when she doesn’t want her husband or children to know what she’s saying.
