"Vincent LaPenta and Cornerstone Protection provided professional security for Make-A-Wish at the Long Beach Polar Bear Superbowl Splash. The attendance at our event was close to 15,000 people and at times became a little chaotic.  His presence provided our staff with peace of mind knowing security was one thing we would not have to worry about.  Vincent and his team were professional, courteous and very patient.  The event was a huge success and went off without incident.  We look forward to working with Cornerstone Protection again".

There are a lot of details to attend to when managing a large whisky festival. Working with Cornerstone Protection Inc. allows me to leave all of our security concerns in their very capable hands, so I can focus on other aspects of our festivals.

Vincent LaPenta and his team have many excellent qualities: they are experienced, professional, thorough, courteous, and focused. It can be especially difficult to work with attendees at an alcoholic event, but that’s why you hire a firm like Cornerstone Protection. Whatever your security needs, Cornerstone Protection offers professionals with the ability to handle difficult situations quickly and with discretion.

Scheduling is a breeze; my calls and emails are always answered promptly. Cornerstone Protection contributes, in large part, to the success of our events.

Dear Vincent:

The Clinton Global Initiative 2011 Annual Meeting was a great success and we owe much of this to the many people who came together to make it happen.

Each year at CGI I am inspired by the passion and enthusiasm of the people who make our annual meetings possible. This event is a result of planning and collaboration by numerous groups, including CGI’s staff, advisors, and our dedicated volunteers. Your support is critical to our efforts and I was delighted to have you join us at this truly global event.

I hope this year’s speakers and the commitments made during the meeting left you full of ideas and creative inspiration for your future endeavors. Thank you for your engagement with CGI.

President William J. Clinton
