Aug 26, 2017 848

An iconic staple in Little Italy anticipates a huge turnout will jumpstart its rebuilding efforts. Sons of Italy is hoping a dinner fundraiser on Saturday will help them open its doors once again. A two-alarm fire heavily damaged the hall in January which only left the brick frame standing and damage expenses more than $670,000.

To help cover some of the costs, St. Joseph Villa Nursing and Rehabilitation Center will host a dinner fundraiser Saturday, starting at 4 p.m. Some of the raised money will go towards causes the organization supports, such as Autism Speaks, Alzheimer’s Association, Military Heroes and Cooley’s Anemia.
