Update on our Central Italy Fundraiser

By edmonddantes,

Mandi members and friends of the Famee Furlane!

As you probably remember (or perhaps you were there!), we organized a fundraiser this past May, in order to help the populations of Central Italy affected by the earthquake.

Today we are happy to give you a little heads up!

We have sent your generous donations to a non profit organization called Omnibus Omnes which has the aim of helping out the population of Arquata del Tronto, one of the towns mostly affected by the earthquake.

The president of Omnibus Omnes, Raffaella Milandri, just sent us a note to thank all of us and to let us know that the entire sum will be used to support the students of Arquata del Tronto by establishing scholarships!

The award ceremony will take place this upcoming December, presumably the week before Christmas, and we have been officially invited to the event!

Once again, we thank all of you for your generous donations and for sharing our goal of helping a community in need.

We will keep you posted on the ceremony…

In the meantime, if you are still interested in making a donation or finding out more about Omnibus Omnes, you can check their website out: http://www.omnibusomnes.org/

Gracis di cur a duc!

Grazie di cuore a tutti!

Our heartfelt thanks to all of you!

Just wanted to let you know that we’ll have our Festitalia Regional Dinner on Sunday, September 10th!

Everyone is welcome to join us in a journey through Friuli’s traditional food, and we’ll promise there will be lots of entertainment too!

Here’s a sneak peek through our menu: prosciutto, gnocchi, muset & umido just to name a few!

Tickets are $40 per person and make sure to reserve as soon as you can as it is usually a sold out event!
