Trevor Marca is a multifaceted marketing professional with a broad range of experiences in fundraising, sponsorship, advertising and community outreach. As the publisher of the Glendale Hills Living and La Canada Flintridge Neighbors magazines, Trevor is committed to uniting the residence of these communities through the distribution of entertaining, informative, and educational content.
Through his work with his community magazines, Trevor has had the opportunity to learn a great deal about the communities and the nonprofit organizations they care about. In an effort to help support his community in big ways, each magazine has a space dedicated to local charities.
Trevor has since partnered with Elida Tsou, a prominent social entrepreneur in the Glendale community. Elida Tsou, a Founding Leader of viaONEHOPE Wine and owner of Elida Designs, a handcrafted jewelry boutique, donates a large percentage of her business revenue to partner nonprofit organizations, and has partnered with businesses to provide ways to integrate giving back in their business model.
Elida has mentored Trevor on the benefits of social entrepreneurship and the importance of creating a means for the local community to gather to make an impact on a local level. Together the duo has teamed up to combine Trevor’s network in the community and Elida’s event specialist experience to leverage their connections, knowledge, and business platforms to provide a great deal of support for a number of organizations in the area with the goal of bringing more business to local businesses, more awareness and funds to local charities and bring neighbors and the community together in a meaningful way.
Each issue of the magazine features a family from the community on the cover along with a feature spread inside. Trevor and Elida’s vision is to celebrate notable families in their community through monthly magazine release launch parties featuring a different local charity each month. The party features the family as the guest of honor, and featured families have the unique opportunity to choose their favorite charity to benefit from the event’s proceeds. The parties, which take place at a variety of local businesses, feature raffles, ONEHOPE wine tasting, Elida Designs hand crafted jewelry, and more to support charity.
Trevor was inspired to get into publishing because he had come to recognize that most media outlets focus on the negative events and aspects of society, while ignoring so many of the great people, events, and philanthropies that make communities great. He hopes that his magazines will serve as a source of community pride and a conduit to showcase the many outstanding residents that make these neighborhoods such as desirable place to live.
Trevor has worked tirelessly to build connections within the community, and learn what those in the area truly care about. Trevor is excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for Glendale Hills Living and La Canada Flintridge Neighbors, and the positive impact the magazines will continue to have on the communities moving forward.
