Il Circolo, the Italian Cultural Society of the Palm Beaches, held its 34th Anniversary Annual Gala, Serata Veneziana,  at the Breakers on March 21, 2010.  The Venetian Room was decorated in colorful masks with a gondola adorning the stage entrance.  Guests were greeted by President Paul Finizio and Chairpersons Barbara Ciongoli and Lexye Aversa, then proceeded to the bountiful display of Italian antipasti to accompnay their cocktails in the Mediterranean Room while accordianist, Tony Mecca,  played familiar folk songs.

          The Italian and American national anthems were sung by Lou Galterio to open the festivities and following was an invocation by Bishop Mulvee, a personal friend of honoree, Louis Freeh.   Greetings and thanks were expressed to special donors Carroll Carpenter, Robert and Bernadette Buccini, Finizio and Finizio, John and Jana Scarpa, Leo and Kathryn Vecellio, Marcello Fiorentino, Don and Angie Seta, Herme de Wyman Miro, John Goodman, Lois Pope and Ed Walson.  Madelyn Savarick  underwrote  the opera interlude which included  young soprano, Madison Marie McIntosh  accompanied by pianist,  Dominic Raffa and tenor, Carlos de Antonis. 

           Plaques of recognition were  awarded to Man-of-the-Year 2010, Louis Freeh and Honorary Chairman, Robert Silvani, commending them for the admirable model they portray as Italian Americans.   The Honorable Louis Freeh responded with gratitude and praise for Il Circolo whose mission is to preserve and promote that Italian culture his mother instilled in him.

          The evening continued with dinner and dancing to the Gino De Marco Orchestra and ended with special raffle prizes, including stays in Italy,  and goody bags of Colavita pasta, EucaVanni tomato sauce and other gifts for all guests.

            “This was the best yet!”, was heard by departing guests.
