The Luncheon will feature a silent auction, with items from world-renowned Italian fashion, jewelry and leather designers to prestigious wines, premium pastas and olive oil companies, plus a raffle for a Vespa. The auction will be followed by lunch, presentations to the honorees and speeches by recipients’ families.

Proceeds from the Luncheon benefit the Italian Welfare League’s “I Nostri Bambini” program. The program provides assistance to children of Italian-American descent who have serious health conditions, disabilities or have suffered an emotional trauma. The League has donated more than $2 million to nearly 2,000 children.
