our values at work
We believe in doing great work. We believe in doing great works, too.
Our events and community gatherings under our nonprofit, Craftsman Cafe, has raised over $500,000. We have supported Oasis for Orphans, Cristo Rey St Martin High School, Lake County Children's Advocacy Center, The Sports Shed, Youth & Family Counseling and many, many others.
We believe in the power of creating community both online and offline. It's central to our work at Craftsman Media, and it's central to our work in the greater community through Craftsman Cafe.
We started Craftsman Cafe to exercise our passion for music, art, community building, and paying it forward. We've produced concerts, chef events, discos, and other creative events.
We started ViTALS College Conference because of our belief in coaching and mentoring, and the fact all students benefit from the guidance of professionals in our community. We've recruited over 35 local professionals who serve as mentors. They include business owners and executives from local pharma companies, vehicle dealerships, educators, investment professionals and community leaders.
