A Message from our President

Hello members,
June started off with our first birthday dinner chaired by Evan Matthews. We had a delicious meal of Fusilli W/pesto and Pork roast. Thank you to our cooks Michele Gasparro, Don Nicoli & Alfonso De Pianto.

Our second birthday dinner is also our Scholarship Recipients awards night. We had a delicious dinner. The Beef Scaloppini was fantastic. Thank you to our cooks Art Parziale, Dino De Pianto & Lonnie Chase. Great job guys! Our dinner was made more special thanks to the Fratellanza Women’s club who served as our wait staff for the evening. Thank you all. The highlight of the evening was the awarding of six Louis C Biondi memorial scholarships. Once again ongratulations to our scholarship recipients, Maylin Guida, Christopher Bartolon, Francesca Caruso, Nicolas Rago, Brian Tongnolini & Alexandra Trombettas.

I would like to say a special thank Rich Giaramita & Ralph Brignone for helping out that night.

As always thank you to all the bartenders, waiters, ticket sellers & kitchen crew that help make all our dinners & events a success.

Our Family dinner western night is July 9. It’s always a good time so come on out. Don’t forget our birthday dinners July 7 & 21.

See you at the club.
God Bless & Sempre Avanti

Applications can be found at www.fratellanzaclub.com, at the club, or you can call the club and we’ll get one to you. The tournament raises funds so we can offer College Scholarships to graduating high school students. To date, our Scholarship Committee has awarded over $150,000 in scholarships!

We really appreciate the donation you made last year. We will be acknowledging all of our Prize Donors and Tee Sponsors at the awards banquet following the tournament and are displayed in our dining room for three months thereafter. This is very valuable because the Fratellanza Club hosts roughly six events per month with attendance exceeding 250 people.

A Message From Our President

Hello members,

May started off with our annual Mother’s Day brunch, spearheaded as usual by Art Parziale. Over 160 guests enjoyed the “new” buffet style brunch combined with our standard eggs or omelets cooked to order. Of course it would not be a Fratellanza brunch without Sante’s famous Gin fizzes. They are delicious. Thank you to Art, Michele, Angelo, Alfonso, Sante, Loretta, Rose Marie, Sally, Lee, Adriana, Vito, Evan, Diane, Claire, Gloria, Deanna, & Rich.

Alex Alexeev & Family chaired our first birthday dinner. Over 250 guests enjoyed a dinner of Tortellini & Roasted Chicken. Thank you to our cooks, Michele Gasparro, Don Nicoli, & Evan Matthews.

May 14 was our Wine Tasting event, chaired & organized by Joe Scodella. We would like to thank all those who helped with this event and all who donated auction items. A great time was had by all, and Joe is already planning for next year!

Our second birthday dinner was chaired by the Hines, Taddei, & Tomei families. Our dinner of Risotto & Vern’s roasted chicken were perfect. Thank you to our cooks, Art Parziale, Don Nicole & Alfonso DePianto. Great job by 1st time waiter Annie Hines.

A special thank you to Roland Lazzarotto for clearing out the weeds in the back by the benches. Looks great! Thanks again Roland.

The Fratellanza club would like to congratulate our scholarship recipients; Maylin Guida, Christopher Bartolon, Francesca Caruso, Nicolas Rago, Brian Tongnolini & Alexandra Trombettas. Please join us as we honor them at our June 16th Birthday Dinner.
