Sons of Italy 'Christmas Eve Feast'

In the spirit of giving, Winnipeg’s Sons of Italy, Garibaldi Lodge is proud to present our annual Christmas Eve Feast.

Working with our major sponsors, the West End BIZ, X-Cues Billiards & Cafe and Sorrentos Restaurant on Ellice along with many generous companies and individuals, we are able to provide a true feast on Christmas Eve for many people who might not have had an opportunity to experience a wonderful meal, pictures with Santa, music, fun, and presents.

We have a wonderful time putting on the event, and want to thank the many companies who donate food and the dozens of people who so generously donate time and dollars at a time of year when both are scarce.

If you can help in some way, please e mail.  We welcome your participation. - Reno Augellone and John Giavedoni
