Giving to Charity

Annual Gala "Charity of Choice"

Our major fundraising event of the year is our Annual Gala Dinner.  We designate one organization per year to receive the majority of proceeds from this lavish event, our "Charity of Choice"

 

The rest of the Gala proceeds, combined with other fundraising we do through the year, support a broad range of organizations that include other charitable causes as well as giving to the Italian cultural community


Below is a list of recent Charity of Choice recipients.  Since 1994, Sons of Italy Garibaldi Lodge has given over $1,000,000 to local charities, and we have been giving for 31 years now!  The list of recent recipients demonstrates our commitment to giving to a wide variety of deserving charities:

We Don't Just Give to Our Charity of Choice

While the Annual Gala is our major fundraiser and our opportunity to give a large sum in one evening to that year's Charity of Choice, we give to other charities at the Gala and throughout the year.
