Dear Mr. Gardella:
Once again please accept our sincere thanks for your continuous support of our Learning Center. Our students and staff appreciate your kindness; the proceeds from the event of will be used to purchase new materials to enhance instruction.
“Grazie tante!” for selecting our Center to benefit from the Sunday Fest. Mere words are not enough to describe the wonderful Sunday afternoon “Meatball Fest” designed and developed by you. It was a delight to see so many individuals having a super time as they enjoyed the scrumptious food. It was a tribute to our heritage to see the humble meatball devoured by the guests. It was impossible not to be enthusiastic as the guests tasted, tested, and judged the numerous entries. Walking around the room, I heard many patrons comparing the taste of each submission and discussing their choice. Be proud of this event as it brought numerous new people into Little Italy. In addition, it further developed a sense of community. Sincere thanks for including us in this event.
Our Learning Center would not be possible without the consistent, committed efforts of
caring individuals. You, your family members and dedicated staff are truly dedicated to the language and culture of our beloved ancestors.
With your support, we will continue to honor our forefathers for their love of family, for their support of education, and for their courage to fight to obtain them. Our teachers, staff, and volunteers extend their sincere thanks for dedicated support to our center.
