Order Sons of Italy, Garibaldi Lodge will hold its 31th Annual Gala Dinner on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at the RBC Winnipeg Convention Centre.

Presented by RBC, this acclaimed event not only demonstrates the philanthropic spirit of Sons of Italy, but also the caring and giving that Winnipeggers, their businesses and leaders are known for.

Together with our sponsors, Sons of Italy strives to ensure that this Gala will a premiere event -- and we have a long tradition of amazing galas.
