Vittoria Lodge Makes Large Donation to Italian American Cultural Center of Iowa

At the annual Columbus Day Dinner presented by the Italian American Cultural Center of Iowa, President Jim Forneris of the Vittoria Lodge presented a $7,500 donation to the Cultural Center to be used as a payment on the principal of the Cultural Center’s mortgage.

The donation came from the proceeds earned by the Vittoria Lodge’s efforts at this year’s Italian American Heritage Festival of Iowa.

In appreciation for their donation, the Cultural Center sent a cake and a letter of thanks to the Vittoria Lodge at their October meeting.

Vittoria Lodge Participates in Viva L’Italia Festival

Members of the Vittoria Lodge contributed many hours of volunteer work in the planning and execution of this year’s Italian American Heritage Festival of Iowa.  The women of the auxilliary also worked in the  Vittoria Lodge food booth selling biscotti, guanti, and Blue Bunny ice cream.  Proceeds from the festival food booth went towards the Vittoria Lodge Scholarship fund.  Below is a slideshow of photos from the food booth.  Thanks to all who volunteered!
