Eugene Dente

Humanitarian Concerns

Eugene graduated with a degree in administration of justice and today is a successful precious gem manufacturer in San Diego. For the past decade, Gene has developed, promoted and donated to academic resource funds that help scholar/athletes complete their education after their athletic eligibility has ended, thereby helping assure their continued success. Through his hard work, generosity and business acumen, one such fund has raised more than $1 million to assist these students.

In addition, Gene’s generosity has extended to support Amvets, Boys & Girls Club, Children’s Hospital, Goodwill, Make a Wish Foundation, National Kidney Foundation, United Way and the YMCA, to name just a few.
