Clarissa Morales graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a BA in Media and Cultural Studies. During her time at UCR, she discovered her passion for philanthropy and special event planning for nonprofit organizations. She loves raising money for great causes and creating an amazing and fun experience for her local community.
She is currently a Community Development Manager for the American Cancer Society, and she is proud to be the staff partner for Relay For Life of Fontana – Rialto. Save the date for May 30, 2020 at Fontana High School!
Over the past 8 years, she has also had the honor of planning multiple fundraising events for local organizations such as Operation Safehouse, The Breast Cancer Fundraiser, the American Lung Association, and the Make a Wish Foundation. She is also an active member of the Pick Group, a diverse network of young professionals interested in engaging with and bettering their community while pursuing excellence in the workplace.
When she is not running around with a clip board at an event, she’s usually at the beach playing volleyball or hiking up to a waterfall. One quirky fact about Clarissa is that her first job was as a sign spinner, and she can still do some of those neat twirls and flips!
