On behalf of Figli di Pomigliano D’Arco, I would like to thank you all for joining us for our 6th Annual Dinner Dance. It was a great success.
Efforts put forward by the Dinner Dance Committee made it the triumph it was. Everyone involved should be very proud. A special thank you goes out to our Executive Committee Members, whose support made it all possible, and Anthony De Falco, our Master of Ceremonies, whose hard work paid off in us having such an enjoyable and rememberable experience.
For our first time ever, we had two winners of our Scholarship, Nick Caiazzo and Felicia Di Fiore. Nick, who is studying Accounting, and Felicia, who is studying Nutrition, will endeavor to keep the Pomiglianese spirit alive by their continued determination to grow and learn and always make the most of themselves.
We also honored Vittorio Romano as one of our most senior Pomiglianese. With his wisdom, experience, and shining examples of hard work, he serves as a beacon for all of the younger generation to follow.
We had an excellent out pour of support with our raffle, which the proceeds went to aid those Pomiglianese effected by Superstorm Sandy. We would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to all of those who donated. The money donated was of great aid to those who suffered damage or loss during the storm.
As we look forward to the upcoming events of 2013, we are certain that it will be the start of one of our best years yet. We have many new plans in the works that will certainly be huge successes. By your continued support, you the member, make this organization the success that it is and that it will become.
Again, I would like to thank everyone who joined us for the Dinner Dance, all of our members for your support, and our Committee Members. I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
Vincenzo De Falco
