Borelli Investment Company Receives City of San Jose Commendations
Honors given for 50 years of service and for support of inaugural San Jose Grand Prix.
San Jose, Calif., October 24, 2005 — The City of San Jose has awarded Borelli Investment Company, and its president and CEO, Ralph N. Borelli, two commendations for making a mark in its community. The first was in celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary, and the second was for the company’s generous support of the inaugural San Jose Grand Prix—which won acclaim and raised money for Canary Fund’s efforts in early cancer research.
“It is a tremendous honor to receive these commendations from the city,” said Borelli. “The awards reflect the hard work and generosity of all the people who work at Borelli Investment Company and take their personal time to get involved in helping with projects like the San Jose Grand Prix, which raised so much money for a worthy cause.”
In 1955, Ralph Borelli’s father, Nelo, started a small real estate company that served as the predecessor to what is today Borelli Investment Company. Over the years, Borelli Investment Company has been instrumental in helping to develop the world-renowned Silicon Valley, and the company continues to play an active role in providing offices for local businesses and brokering land for new residential communities.
Councilman David Cortese sponsored the commendation for Borelli’s “fifty successful years of service to the community” and wished the company “many more successful years of business.”
Borelli Investment Company was also recognized as one of the San Jose businesses that donated “time, employees, and resources” to ensure that the San Jose Grand Prix enjoyed tremendous success its first year. The week-long event in July drew more than 150,000 fans and raised over a half million dollars for Canary Fund, which is dedicated to research leading to the early detection of cancer. The commendation for Borelli Investment Company was sponsored by Mayor Ron Gonzales, Vice Mayor Cindy Chavez, and Councilmembers Linda LeZotte and David Cortese.
“While it is an honor to be recognized for our efforts, the real reward comes from helping our community,” Borelli remarked. “We look forward to continuing to serve Silicon Valley’s commercial real estate industry and support the San Jose Grand Prix and other communitywide events in the years to come.”
