Hope Hall hosted its annual Experience Italy Fundraising Dinner on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at the Rochester Italian American Sports Club. The seven course meal, sponsored by the Italian American Sports Club, attracted over 250 event attendees and 100% of the proceeds went to support Hope Hall’s academic programs. This year’s dinner raised over $14,500 for the organization, generating funds from admission tickets, corporate sponsorships, as well as raffle item sales. Every dollar raised from this event goes directly to programs and services for Hope Hall students.
The Italian American Sports Club’s dedication to Hope Hall students has spanned 15 years. This annual event would not be possible without the club donating all of the food as well as volunteering their time and talent to make the experience memorable for attendees. Since its inception, the Experience Italy Dinner has raised more than $160,000 for Hope Hall students. The board of trustees, faculty, staff, parents and students wish to extend their gratitude to everyone at the Italian American Sports Club for their support of our children.
