Little Italy’s Amici Park August 17, 2013
Our Lady of the Rosary spearheaded this sold-out biennial event, meant to bring the neighborhood together and celebrate Italian culture. The nearly 800 guests dressed in Roaring ’20s attire and enjoyed bites from Little Italy restaurants, including Monello, Davanti Enoteca, Busalacchi’s, and more. Live entertainment, auctions, and casino games also contributed to the speakeasy environment of the era. The event exceeded its goal by 20 percent, raising $120,000, and will help fund scholarships, school programs, and the ongoing beautification of Little Italy.
