The New York Gala has become a must-attend gathering of the city's business elite and Italian American community leaders. At this sold out event, NIAF honors outstanding Italian Americans and Italians whose contributions make a positive difference in their communities and around the world, enabling the Foundation to continue its fundraising efforts to assist in awarding Italian American students life-changing scholarships and grants throughout the year.
The National Italian American Foundation is pleased to announce another couture evening in New York at the legendary Cipriani 42nd Street on Tuesday, April 9, 2019. Join us for another sold-out event making it a lively, high-energy affair. During the cocktail reception, guests, VIPs and honorees will have the opportunity to mingle, enjoy Cipriani's light Bellini cocktails while bidding on NIAF's silent-auction collection of sports and film memorabilia, exclusive designer accessories, and one-of-a-kind travel experiences. During an exquisite, three-course meal, guests will be introduced to the VIP guests of the evening, the 2019 honorees and entertainment by NIAF's Celebrity Ambassador and radio host, Joe Piscopo.
