Sons of Italy Heart of the Lion Award

The Sons of Italy "Heart of the Lion" Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an individual who has tirelessly given of themselves and has made significant contributions to the community. The "Heart of the Lion" Lifetime Achievement Award is a special honour bestowed by the Sons of Italy, Garibaldi Lodge.  

It is not an annual award; it will be given in years where we need to recognize the contributions made to the greater Winnipeg community by an individual of Italian descent.
