There were few charitable causes that didn’t catch the eye — and heartstrings — of the late Yvonne Sangiacomo, who died in January. This ebullient San Francisco native, daughter of nightclub impresario Agostino (Bimbo) Giuntoli and wife of the wildly successful property developer and landlord, the late Angelo Sangiacomo lived a long, full life of love and philanthropy.

“Yvonne was an angel on earth! She received so many donation requests. But more often than not, she’d write a check,” notes PR pro and family friend Lori Puccinelli Stern. “Even if she wasn’t familiar with a charity, but believed the work was beneficial, her idea of ‘minimum’ often amounted to $5,000.”
